Most rich fruit cakes are high in fat and added sugar, but this one is an exception. It's relatively low in fat, and depends mainly on dried fruits soaked in apple juice for natural sweetness. Decorated with nuts, and glacé and crystallised fruits, it makes a healthy cake that would be festive enough for Christmas.

Brilliant chef Antony Worrall Thompson has donated to TREE AID a diabetic friendly tree cake. Antony: "Villagers in Africa know all about foraging for food for free in their woodlands. Using the most nutritious of these foods could go a long way to reversing malnutrition. I want people to have fun cooking my tree cake and finding out about TREE AID’s work to help villagers grow important food trees."
