Eggless Fruit Cake
First let me talk about the big change I told you about in my previous post. Many of you have guessed correctly!! Yes, I am going to get my own domain from the New Year. I am so happy about it. But I am still working on it and I will give you more details soon.
I’ve been thinking to bake a fruit cake for Christmas, but most of the recipes I found on the net contain rum/brandy in them. As I want kids also (of course us too) to eat it, I wanted to omit it. I know true Christmas Fruit Cake means we have to prepare it traditionally, but hey, nothing wrong in trying this simple and yummy cake too!! It tasted so delicious and I had the satisfaction that I baked some fruit cake for this Christmas.

My Notes: Original Recipe asked us to bake the cake for 75 minutes, but I baked it just for 30 minutes and it came out just perfect and yum. And I also added ¼ cup of milk to the batter as I thought it was little dry when I prepared it according to the original recipe. The cake came out soft.
But it didn’t raise that much like the usual cake. It may be because we didn’t add any eggs. Is it? Expert bakers: please enlighten me on this. :)
