Quick & Easy Fruit Cake

Can you believe I finally remembered to take pictures as I was preparing the cake but then forgot to take a picture of the finished product! lol SORRY!
This cake has no fat or added sugar, so it's great for everyone.

1kg dried fruit (either from a packet or chop your own)
850ml apricot nector (or pear juice)
2 cups self raising flour

1/ Pour dried fruit into a mixing bowl.
 2/ Pour over the nector or juice.
3/  Leave covered (or in the fridge) to soak for 12-48 hours. The nector will have been absorbed into the fruit.

4/ Pour into a lined baking dish. I tend to use my roasting dish because it is quite a large cake.
Bake for 1 hour at 180C, until a skewer comes out clean.
Allow to cool before cutting.
