I am not big fan of fruit cakes. But really like the plum cakes we get during Christmas. This is my first Christmas after I started blogging and since I am in UK Christmas is more special. I thought I should try fruit cakes and got the mixed dry fruits in November itself. Here we get the mixed fruits in packets. You can get them individually, chop and use them too.

I have given some examples of fruits and nuts you can use in notes. Quantity of dried fruits is also your choice. I used only dry fruits. You can use nuts to make it more rich and delicious. Caramel gives nice flavor and color to the cake.

Notes

Baking time and temperature will vary depending on the oven. So closely watch after 35 minutes.

Cool the cake completely before slicing

Dust the dry fruits with little flour to prevent them from sinking to bottom. I missed that step

My mixed dry fruits contain raisins, currants, cranberry, candied citrus peel

You can also use figs, apricots, dates, plums, tutti fruti, cherries

You can use nuts like cashews, badam, pista, hazelnuts, walnuts

You can use nutmeg and clove powder also. You can prepare the spice powder by roasting them and grinding to powder.
