Does anyone have a recipe for the Trex quick-mix fruit cake, please? My mum and I used to make it when I was a kid - it tastes great and everybody loved it. I emailed Trex manufacturers and they said they'd never heard of it!

I have what you are looking for:
8 oz self raising flour
OR 8 oz plain flour AND
2 level teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 oz sugar
3 1/2 oz TREX
2 eggs unbeaten
5 -6 oz sultanas
Milk almond essence
BAKE FOR 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hrs on 350 degrees F Gas M4

Method: grease 7" cake tin and line with grease proof paper
Sift all dry ingredients together Add TREX in one piece unbeaten eggs and milk. Stir for 2 mins until smooth and creamy. Add fruit and flavouring. Turn into the cake tin and bake in moderate oven.
Makes 8 -10 slices

Enjoy. We called it cut and come again cake. Taken from TREX cookery fourth edition 1964 So trex need to look in archives!!!!!!!!
