Holidays cannot be fully cherished without a perfectly baked Christmas fruit cake and that’s exactly what I have in store for you today!
December is undoubtedly my favorite month not only because it brings along my birthday but also, I get ample excuses to bake a good cake! And what can mark the start of this holiday season better than this delicious looking Christmas fruit cake! This fruit cake is so amazing that it always brings out a ‘WOW’ from everyone whoever you feed this to and I am talking from my experience! Everyone loved this fruit cake to put it simply. But the best thing is yet to come. Unlike traditional plum cakes, this Christmas fruit cake is much easier as well as faster to make; hence even if you are a novice baker just like me, you can go ahead and bake this cake without any worry and success is guaranteed! The top hard crust of this fruit cake is astoundingly complemented by the soft inner texture which is loaded with fruits. The amount of fruit in your fruit cake is entirely your personal choice; but to be honest, I went a little overboard while making my Christmas fruit cake this time!
The year ending holiday season adds an indescribable joy to the surroundings and stirs up peoples’ mood with happiness. I always felt there is something mysterious about it! May be the abundance of such sweet treats to be blamed for such joyfulness in us! This season is full of bakes; be it cakes, pastries, pies or savory stuffs like casseroles. I love this season of baking and want to be a part of this wholeheartedly, which is the very reason that I planned to bake this scrumptious Christmas fruit cake! This fruit cake does require some planning e.g. soaking the fruits in some kind of alcohol for couple of days, stirring them few times in between etc. But all these are totally worth it, in fact more! Once this fruit cake is baked and comes out of the oven, you will surely feel yourself on cloud 9! Trust me on this!
