Christmas Tree Fruit Cake ( In a Sandwich-maker )
Makes : 8
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 cup caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/4 tsp. vanilla essence
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 to 2 tbsp. milk

- In a bowl, beat butter and sugar together until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla.
- Sift in flour and baking powder, beat on low until well combined.

- Brush the inner sides of the sandwich maker ( cooking surface ) with cooking oil. Close and heat until the light turns red.
- Spoon your cake batter in each well until full but not overflowing.
- Close the lid of the sandwich maker and cook for approximately 3 - 4 minutes or until golden brown ( Check after 3 minutes with a toothpick, if the tooth pick comes out clean, it's ready. If not, cook a little longer ).
- Remove and transfer to a plate. Repeat this process with remaining batter.
- Serve plain, sprinkled with icing sugar or drizzled with thin icing, for a more festive look.
- For icing, combine a little icing sugar and enough water in a bowl to make smooth and thin icing. Add in green food color.

- Insert an ice cream stick into the middle of each cake and serve.
