"Bran Brack" Fruit Cake

I was given this recipe by one of my dearest friends Sjaan who cooked it for one of our craft get-togethers. There is an option to change it and I tried both and like the one with the additions better.
Great when on the road as the ingredient list is small.

500 gr mixed fruit (home brand works well)
300 ml carton of iced coffee
1 cup self raising flour.  (If cooking this in a Dream Pot or other thermal cooker increase the flour to 1.25 cups.)
Soak the fruit in the coffee overnight, mix in sifted flour, line a loaf tin and bake for 1 hour in a very moderate oven.
The addition of 1 egg and 1/4 cup of rum or whiskey is a great idea and the cake is a little bit moister.
