What You Will Need
A box of cake mix
A can of soda
A whisk for mixing
Cake tin or disposable aluminium tray
A simple fruit cake recipe for busy mums and dads! (No eggs or butter required!)
Gather the materials
Follow directions on the cake mix box. Instead of adding eggs and butter/oil, add in a can of soda. Assist your child, but let him/her do the pouring.
Whisk the mixture well. You can choose to mix in half of the fresh fruits. Fold gently to prevent mashing the blueberries.
Transfer mixture into the cake tin (there is no need to oil the surface if you are using a disposable aluminum tin). And it is ready for baking. Follow the heating and timing directions on the box.
When the cake is done, let it cool down. Then lay a layer of icing sugar on it.
Use the remaining fruits to decorate the cake.
Enjoy the fruity cake with your loved ones.
