Eggless Christmas Fruit Cake 5

Sharing is caring!

Merry Christmas to my readers!

Here’s the Eggless Fruit Cake that I made for this year’s Christmas. It’s a delicious mix of dry fruits, nuts soaked in Orange and Mosambi Juice for over 24 hours. I used brown sugar and the cake was moist and sweet enough to make it as a Tea Cake as well.

With two days off, I was lazy around and could bake only one cake. Will be back with another one soon.
