Eggless Christmas Fruit Cake


    Baking all types of cakes and cookies for this Bake-A-Thon and how could i not bake a fruit cake!!!!!!The first time that I baked with this recipe was an year back. Before even I could click the pics, the cake was gone, so scheduled the post for Christmas this year!!!!!!. The dry fruit, the butter sugar mixture, the flavour of spice…hmmmm….too good.Without much delay let me write down the ingredients

    For the Wet fruit Mixture
    Butter 1 cup
    Demerara Sugar 1 cup
    Golden syrup 2 tbsp
    Golden Raisins 100 gms
    Black Raisins 100 gms
    Apricot 100 gms
    Cranberries 50 gms
    Figs 50 gms
    Water 1 cup
    Cashew 50 gms
    Walnut 50 gms
    Baking Soda 1 tsp
    Mashed Potato 1 cup
    All spice powder 3/4 tsp
    Vanilla 1 1/2 tsp
    Yogurt 2tbsp
    Milk 2 tbsp

    For the Dry Mixture
    All purpose flour 2 cups
    Baking Powder 1 1/2 tsp
    Baking Soda 1/4 tsp

    Boil the potatoes , cool mash and keep it aside
    Grease an 8″ round cake tin. Line it with butter paper, grease the paper too.
    Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl and keep aside
    In a saucepan combine the dry fruits, butter, sugar, syrup and water. Cook on a very low flame till the sugar dissolves completely.Now raise the heat and let the mixture come to boil. Reduce the heat again to low and let the mixture simmer for 20 minutes. Switch off the heat and add 1 tsp baking soda to this. Mix well and keep it aside to cool.
    Once the mixture cools, add the yogurt, vanilla, all spice powder, zest and mashed potato. Whisk well till the mixture comes together and is smooth.
    Now put the nuts in and mix well.
    Fold in the flour mixture.
    I felt the mixture was a little dry at this stage, so added 2 tbsps of milk to this.
    Transfer this to the greased baking mould. Arrange the blanched almonds on the surface,Cover with an aluminum foil, Bake for 1 1/2 hr -2 hr or till a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean
    This is the best Eggless fruit cake that i have ever baked.
