Fruit cake

It is a light and crumbly cake, and light on fruit and candied peel only currants , raisins , sultanas and cherries . Soak all dry fruits in grape juice. We can also use any juice. Soak for atleast 1 hrs. If we have more time, soak for 8 hrs for best results. 

It’s a fruit cake that’s incredibly easy to make, with a rich, velvety texture that’s full flavoured and so moist it can be eaten plain! (But no one turns away a slosh of custard!) Just as good made on the day – or weeks later. 

I have made fruit cake with whole wheat and palm jaggery. This is very tasty and my one of my favorite cake.

How to Store Homemade Fruit Cake: After the cakes have cooled, store in air tight container.
