This Xmas cake is what festivity is all about! Indulgent, brilliant and delicious! The rum soaked fruits enhance the taste of the cake so much!
I usually make a rich and yummy Plum/fruit cake for Xmas. Like the plum cake recipe which I had posted last year. But this year, I wanted to make a fruit cake and yet also wanted to do something different. So I started doing what I do the best, I started browsing of course 😉 I read many recipes online but somehow none of them really stuck home (though I must say I love this Florentine cake and might make it before Saturday once 🙂 ) I had my fruits soaked in rum ready and set to go, and hence I decided to pick something from one recipe, something from another, something from my own and made my own fruit cake aka. Xmas cake!
Anyone who knows me well would have guessed by now what is the most major change I did to the cake – I made it out of whole wheat flour 🙂
Xmas is the time for celebrations, whether you follow the religion or not! There is a festivity in the air everywhere which is so difficult to ignore. Add to that, you have a reason to indulge in some delicious food and trust me, no one can resist enjoying the food and festivities. You have so much to look forward to. The New Year, new beginnings and then a new calendar! Sigh, I do love Xmas!
There is a nip in the air everywhere and eating a warm slice of the Xmas cake which has rum soaked fruits, sure is the right way to spend Xmas 🙂 I love cooking with alcohol and I even have a post on the blog where I have written at length about it!
So this Xmas, indulge in some rum soaked fruit cake and enjoy the delightful taste!
