Vegan Anniversary Fruit Cake

Today is my parents anniversary, and to celebrate of course I had to make them a cake! My parents love fruit cake so that was the obvious choice. Covered in marzipan with cherries on top, its the perfect anniversary cake.

What you will need:

  • 75g self raising flour
  • 25g ground almonds
  • 25g coconut sugar
  • 8 tbsp coconut milk
  • 25g dried mixed fruit (soaked in hot water)
  • 5 glace cherries chopped
  • 8 tsp raisin syrup
  • 9 cherries
  • 50g vegan butter
  • Golden marzipan
  • Icing sugar to dust.


  1. Pre heat the oven to 180c and prepare a cake tin by greasing it with vegan butter and dust over flour.
  2. Boil a cup of water and place in the mixed fruit, to soak.
  3. Cream together the butter and the sugar.
  4. Stir in the ground almonds and sift in the self raising flour.
  5. To add moisture to the mix add the coconut milk and the raisin syrup.
  6. Drain andΒ stir in the dried mixed fruit and the chopped glace cherries.
  7. Spoon the mix into the cake tin and even out, placing in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden.
  8. Remove cake and place on cooling wrack.

To Decorate:

  1. Roll out marzipan on an icing sugar dusted surface, large enough to cover the cake.
  2. Place the cake tin over the marzipan and cut a circle around the tin template.
  3. Place the marzipan over the cake and press down on the edges with a fork to create a patterned edge.
  4. Place the Cherries over the cake in any decorative way you like.
  5. I used a small love heart cutter to indent love hearts into the marzipan to create a subtle love heart pattern.
  6. As a finishing touch dust with icing sugar.
