I have earlier shared Khandvi in microwave in 7 minutes which was loved by you all. Microwave makes the life much easier.

According to me why use microwave only for heating the food? The best use is to use it in different ways to cook, and moreover one does not need to have convection microwave to make these easy peasy recipes.

 

Christmas fruit cake, a wonderful nostalgia

The post about chirstmas cake makes me nostalgic as when we were in college, our Christian friends used to bring us Christmas goodies along with fruit cake.

So this time i decided to make one at home and the aroma wafting while baking this cake can’t be described in words.

The thumb rule to make chirstmas fruit cake is perfect balance between sweet and sour flavours.

The sweetness in the cake comes from the dried or candied fruits while the sourness is achieved by soaking these in alcohol for months.

Leave aside your worries and follow thia recipe for Christmas fruit cake which can be made

✓without soaking the fruits,

✓egg free,

✓alcohol free, and

✓without and Oven/OTG.

So let’s begin ……..

    I made this cake after halving the ingredients and it turned out superbly moist and yet light and flavourful. The cake held its shape intact which enabled me to cut perfect slices. I just like my cakes sweet, so I topped the cake with a thin layer of baking chocolate which became a pretty glaze. Thanks a ton for this brilliant recipe which can be made in a jiffy.
