Taking to the Facebook group Slow Cooker Recipes & Tips, they shared the simple recipe.
All you will need for the ‘iced coffee fruit cake’ is, unsurprisingly, some iced coffee, mixed fruit and self raising flour.
While you do have to soak the fruit in the iced coffee overnight, the rest of the method couldn’t be easier.
Simply stir in the flour in the morning and bake on a low setting for seven hours to get the perfect texture (full recipe below).
