There's nothing like home baking...

We have a little Tessuti Easter tradition that happens every year - baking our beautifully moist Apricot Fruit Cake! 

It keeps well for several days, so is the perfect treat to share around this long weekend. So go on, take the time, get some flour on your nose, and enjoy our Tessuti tried-and-tested super simple recipe below…

Apricot Fruit Cake

1 packet dried apricots

2 cups sultanas

1 medium can crushed pineapple

1/2 cup orange juice concentrate
