Hearty Radish (x1): This hearty root provides a powerful stamina boost, perfect for keeping Link energized on his travels.

  • Honey (x1): A touch of sweetness balances the earthy flavors and offers a slight healing effect.
  • Wheat (x5): The base of the cake, wheat flour provides a satisfying texture and helps bind the ingredients together.
  • Sugar (x3): For a touch of sweetness and caramelization during baking.
  • Butter (x1): Adds richness and helps create a tender crumb.
  • Fresh Fruit (x3): Any combination of apples, pears, or wildberries will work. These juicy additions provide vitamins and a delightful burst of flavor.
  • Salt (Pinch): A pinch of salt enhances the overall flavor profile.

  • Instructions:

    1. Prepare your ingredients: Use the Sheikah Slate to gather your supplies. Chop the radishes and fruit into small pieces.

    2. Combine dry ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together the wheat flour and sugar. Add a pinch of salt for depth of flavor.

    3. Cream the butter and honey: Using a sturdy wooden spoon, cream the butter and honey together until light and fluffy.

    4. Incorporate wet and dry ingredients: Gradually add the creamed butter and honey mixture to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Don’t overmix!

    5. Fold in the fruit and radish: Gently fold in the chopped radish and fruit, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the batter.

    6. Bake to perfection: Preheat a cooking pot over a campfire. Grease the bottom of the pot with a small amount of butter to prevent sticking. Pour the batter into the pot and smooth the top. Cover the pot and cook over low heat for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

    7. Enjoy! Let the cake cool slightly before digging in. This hearty fruitcake will restore Link’s health and stamina, ensuring he’s ready for whatever challenges Hyrule throws his way.
