As Thanksgiving dinners basically related to turkey preparations, Christmas and New Year are more likely associated with various dessert preparations, especially, cakes. So, this time around, we are giving you a quick and easy recipe of a delectably delicious and soft fruit cake. The recipe is as simple as a naive cook can also experiment it without any hesitation, and surprisingly can amaze the guests with his or her culinary skills.
So, today, I am picking a fruitcake as it is the healthiest and most suitable cake for both your kids as well as grandparents. So, without wasting any more time let’s quickly have a look what you require and how it is made.
Mash and grind various fruits 2.5 cup approximately. You can choose any of your favorite fruits, either canned or fresh seasonal ones. I like a good mix of various berries and kiwi.
Sieve 1 tsp of baking powder with 1-1/2 cups of all-purpose flour. Cream 3/4 cup of confectioner’s sugar with 1/2 cup of butter until light and fluffy using an electric mixer. Add 2 eggs one at a time, also include 1-1/2 tsp of vanilla extract and whip until well combined.
Preheat the Oven to 325 degrees F, grease an 8-inch round cake pan.
Now, add the flour to the wet ingredients slowly. Also, add mashed fruits as well as dry fruits at this point, and mix everything evenly using a spatula, don’t overmix the mixture. If your mixture is thick, add 1/2 cup of milk to achieve a pouring consistency.
Pour the mixture into the greased baking tin, and bake it in the preheated oven for about 40 to 45 minutes. Check the doneness of the cake by inserting a clean toothpick at the center of it. If it comes clean that means your cake is done. If not, bake it for another 10 minutes.
8-inch round cake pan Let the cake cool down in the pan before transferring it to a wire rack. Once the cake has completely cooled down, you can either apply any frosting be it vanilla cream frosting or cream cheese frosting. You can even decorate your cake with fresh fruits like kiwis, oranges, and pineapple or serve it plain. The choice is yours, whatever way you and your kids prefer this festive season.
Try this super easy and yummy fruit cake this Christmas and enjoy the festivities! cheers !!!
