Our boozy mini Christmas cakes are the perfect single serve for adults to enjoy after Christmas dinner. Super tasty and simple to make - no one will even notice they’re gluten free! 

Tip: Using a food processor will make the cakes super quick and easy, but can still be made without! You’ll just need to finely chop the fruit mix to make it work. 

Tip: Serve your cakes upside down and top with a simple glaze to make them extra special! Mix one cup of Pams Icing Sugar with 1-2 tbsp hot water, mix until smooth and spoon over each cake. 

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 50 minutes 


  • 3 cups Pams Fruit Cake Mix 
  • Zest and juice of one orange 
  • 4 Tbsp of your alcohol choice (brandy, whisky or rum work best) 
  • 150g Pams Butter 
  • 2 Tbsp Pams Brown Sugar 
  • Pams Free Range Eggs, whisked 
  • 1 ½ cups of Pams Ground Almonds 
  • 1 tsp Pams Baking Powder 


  1. Mix the fruit cake mix, orange juice and zest, and alcohol until the fruit has plumped up a bit. If you have time, leave the mixture to soak for a couple of hours 
  2. In a food processor process butter and sugar until creamed, before adding two thirds of the soaked fruit mixture. Pulse to combine, then slowly add eggs while processing.  
  3. Fold through the remaining fruit, ground almonds and baking powder. 
  4. Divide into a greased muffin tin and bake for 50 minutes at 150°C.  

 Makes 12 mini fruitcakes.
