The Handmaid's Tale Season 3: Blessed be the Fruit Cake



Serves: 8

225g self-raising flour

110g butter

110g sugar

225g mixed fruit

1 egg

5 tablespoons milk

Chopped nuts (optional)



Pre-heat your oven at 180°C.

Mix the butter and flour together, rubbing it until it becomes fine, like breadcrumbs.

Add the sugar and mixed fruit. Drop in the chopped nuts, if you are using them and mix thoroughly.

Pour in the milk and crack the egg into the mixture to create a dropping consistency.

Transfer the mixture into your Springform Cake Tin.

Pop your Fruit Cake in the oven and bake for 1 hour. It may need an extra bit of time (about 15 minutes), so don’t be afraid to pop it back in (Pop a skewer into your cake and when it comes out clear, your fruit cake is ready).



So, there is your snack suggestion for Episode 2 of Handmaid’s Tale season 3. If only the incidents in Gilead would be so easygoing.

Blessed be the Fruit Cake. Blessed be the Fight.
