Buttermilk Fruit Cake Recipe
Christmas is coming up and as always I have this huge list of things that I want to do. And for sure the baker in me is super excited to bake a cake. I had bookmarked so many recipes and thought of trying one by one so that I can blog about it in a hope that they turn out great. And my recent success was baking this super moist Christmas Fruit Cake that is eggless too. Doesn't that sound great? ok you might ask why does this cake not have a deep colour the reason is its not a traditional version and a quicke for which all you need is a wooden spoon or a wire whisk to whip up the batter. Doesn't that sound so simple? I used only tutti fruit you can go ahead and use any kind of nuts, dry fruits and dates to make a rich cake. I love such cakes (snack cakes) for their simplicity and yet you are can be sure that it tastes amazing.  Did I tell you that you can have this cake warm when its right from the oven? well it is :-) if you are an impatient person like me then you sure are going to try this one ;-) Don't wait any further get the bowls and start you baking

Cooks Wisdom

- I added only tutti fruiti to this cake, you can go ahead and add chopped dates, raisins and nuts for more rich flavour

- You can adjust the spices in this cake or make it plain too
- I added 1 tsp of rum extract for a lovely punch
- To make buttermilk at home add 1 tbsp of lime/lemon juice to 1 cup milk, set aside after 2-3 minutes you will notice the milk curdling, you can later use this for making cakes
