German Fruitcake (Obstboden Kuchen)

German Fruitcake (🇩🇪Obstboden Kuchen) is the easiest cake that I can make, I made this at least once, almost every year. Because this is my boyfriend’s favourites and every year on his Birthday I made them for him.

Recipes for the form (ca.Ø 28 cm – Ø 30 cm)
Don’t forget to put a little fat and some wheat flour on the form, so it won’t be sticky. For the Heat you can put it on; Top / bottom heating around 180°C or Hot-air around 160°C.

After it’s done put the fruitcake base out onto a baking rack lined with baking paper and let it cool. Cover the fruit base with fruits you like and cover with cake glaze.
