On Christmas Eve I had baked this delicious eggless fruit Cake.

Though, It's Christmas have planned earlier to make this fruit cake for my family. Instead of Rum I had soaked the dryfruits in orange juice for 24 hrs, you can also use apple juice or grape juice instead. Especially my daughter who is 2 yr 10 months just can't wait for the cake to bake......she just love it & that makes me more satisfied.

This Eggless Christmas Fruit Cake is much more richer in texture & taste. The key in making plum cake is the baking time. This cake is baked at lower temperature so that the texture comes out right which indeed make this cake more flavourful.

Let's check the ingredients & method to make this yummy homemade eggless fruit cake!!!
