Traditional Christmas fruit cakes are prepared by soaking dry fruits in Rum/Wine for long time. I used orange juice as alternative.

So I wanted to try with eggs. I browsed many recipes and finally adapted the recipe from here.
I made this for Christmas party in my daughter school and everyone liked it. Cake came out so soft and spongy. Choice of mixed fruit and nuts is your choice. I have given some examples of fruits and nuts you can use in notes. Quantity of dried fruits and nuts is also your choice. Nuts make it more rich and delicious.
