Recipe Information

Recipe Created By: Laura Giletti


6 cups dried fruit (or 2.25 lb)
2 cups coffee
2 cups flour
1 Tbsp baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips


Put fruit in a large bowl and add coffee. Stir. Soak overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 °F. Line a 9" x 13" baking pan with parchment paper.

Mix flour and baking soda into bowl with dried fruit mix. Mix in chocolate chips.

Press fruit and flour mix into baking pan. Bake for 45-60 minutes, until top is golden brown.


Any dried fruit will do but if necessary pieces should be cut down to raisin-size. I find it tastes best is at least half of the fruit is raisins and currents. It gives a wine-y flavor.


If you have self-rising flour, replace flour and baking soda with 2 cups self-rising flour.

Carefully check your selection of fruits as many dried fruits are packaged on the same lines as peanuts and tree nuts.
