People are making coffee-flavoured fruit cake in their slow cookers and you only need three ingredients

WITH stockpilers leaving shelves empty, baking enthusiasts are struggling to get hold of the ingredients they need.

However, one cook has shared their VERY simple recipe for a coffee flavoured fruit cake, and you only need three ingredients.

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.

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).
