Eggless fruit Cake

Happy 2017 dear readers ! What better way to start the year with a sweet post. There are so many recipes of fruit cake and I love to try new recipes. A new year is incomplete without bakes. This Christmas / New year I tried the eggless version of fruit cake from Divine taste blog. I love to try Anushruti’s recipes as it is very inviting and  always a no fail  one. My fruits are still getting soaked in Vodka which I will try some interesting recipe in the coming days. Last year I had baked the  fruit cake with the soaked fruits for the first time and it tasted so divine. I have come out of my comfort zone and I have started baking recipes that calls for more eggs and alcohol(occasionally) . Of course I seldom taste eggy bakes as I always love to bake and cook for my dear ones.

  1. Lightly grease the  baking tins or use disposable liners like I used.
  2. Preheat the oven at 180 d.c .
  3. Take a mixing bowl and sieve the dry ingredients like flour, baking powder and baking soda.
  4. In another bowl beat together hot water and both the sugar until it melts.

  6. Add in the flour mixture little at a time, cinnamon powder ,nutmeg powder and beat lightly.
  7. Fold in the dried fruits and nuts.

My notes :

  • You may also bake in a bundt pan.
  • Cool the cake completely before you slice the cake.
  • Adjust the temperature depending on your oven.
  • Grease the liners lightly if you are using.
