This last-minute Christmas cake is rich and moist, and it’s perfect when you want to whip up an easy dessert with a traditional touch this holiday season.
Christmas trees, lights, songs, presents, Santa -I think Christmas is the most joyous season of the year. It never fails to fill our homes with happiness and cheer.
When it comes to Christmas food, I think the traditional cake has a very special place. However, I don’t add it to our Christmas menu every year. And when I have it, i bake it at home. Truth to be told, I hate store bought Christmas fruit cakes. For that one reason, whenever I feel like having this traditional cake, I make it at home from scratch. Believe me, it tastes much better.
This last-minute Christmas cake doesn’t require pre-soaking of fruits a week ahead. Just 4 hours is all you need to get your fruits super soft and plump. Did you hear that? Well, that means you could whip up a marvellous cake even on the day before Christmas. Now that sounds awesome.
For this recipe, I used 3 cups dried fruits and 1/2 cup mixed peel. If you like nuts, you could add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or almonds.
Making Christmas cake from scratch is literally super simple and easy. Why not add this to your Christmas menu this year? Enjoy!
