If you do not like lots of different dried fruits you can just put whatever you like totalling the same weight as the fruit in the recipe.
This is a quick and easy fruit cake which I often make:-
225g self raising flour
2.5 ml (1/2 teasp) ground mixed spice (optional)
100g castor sugar
400g dried fuit (any combination)
100 ml oil
100 ml milk
2 medium eggs
2.5 ml almond essence (optional)
Grease and line a 7in round cake time. Preheat oven to 160c.
Beat all ingredients together, spoon into tin, level top, sprinkle with demerrara sugar and bake for 1 hr 30 mins or until a skewer comes out clean.

Cazza - I should have mentioned this; don't be tempted to eat it too quickly. While still warm it is inclined to be a bit stodgy, best leave till the next day then it is delish.
Jamie Oliver made a liquor soaking raisins, cranberries, orange juice & zest plus mixed spice in Vodka which we like at Christimas (we say it tastes like Christmas smells). I always use the soaked fruit in this cake.
