    Christmas is fast approaching and we can see most of the bloggers posting recipes of fruitcakes. This blog already has 2 recipes of the fruitcake and I was not keen to try a new recipe. And then my friend landed from Rajkot and when I asked her,   what should I bake for her, Her reply was a fruitcake. And then incidentally Anuja had posted a Christmas fruitcake recipe on the group Simple baking happy bakes.

    Christmas Fruitcake

    This week the team of Foodie Monday blog hop decided that the theme for this week to be Christmas recipes. Just when I was wondering as to how to manage the posting for different groups without omitting any submission, even in this busy schedule with a lot of travelling, this theme just made things easy for me. This amazing Christmas fruitcake fitted the theme of both Foodie Monday blog hop and Bake-a-thon.

    Anuja is kind enough to give many tried out recipes and this Christmas fruitcake recipe is a keeper. She had given the option of soaking the fruits in either rum or apple juice. I have soaked it in apple juice. I have brushed the cake with the suggested sugar syrup. You can choose to brush it with sugar syrup spiced with cinnamon and star anise.

    Verdict: The cake turned out to out of the world. It has a wonderful crumb too.

    The cake looks so lovely. The contrast of the cake’s brown colour with the light falling on it is beautiful.

    Fruit cakes are literally floating everywhere! Unfortunately I am not a fan of the store bought ones, they are too sweet for me, but though I would love to try making one at home, the whole process makes me feel lazy. This sounds really delicious, and the plus point is that it is eggless too! Since my family is around, I guess it is a good time to try and bake one… hmm… the cake looks amazing, so much goodness going in there!

    Absolutely stunning this looks Veena! If being busy, you can bake such a wonderful cake, I can’t imagine what you can achieve in your spare time. Looks incredibly moist and that shine on top is unmatched. Absolutely adore a good fruit cake and I wish I stayed closer.

    You’re so right that every where one looks, Christmas cakes are there. But I’m glad you shared this recipe as just love the flavored soaking syrup. I would love to have a slice with some tea.
