Christmas is the time of the year for baking, with holidays around the corner, things can be a bit hectic. Most people love to buy from bakeries which ofcourse is loaded with fruit cake, cookies, and much more at this time of the year, even I would love that indulgence once in a while. But nothing beats the excitement and love that comes from receiving a gift box loaded with cakes, cookies, and other yummy treats....
Christmas is the season for gifts...and making food from scratch for a loved one or a friend or a colleague can bring so much joy!! Nothing beats homemade food, so I made a collection of my favorite sweets.
Sweet goodies, which can be packed as gifts or as Christmas treats!!
Traditional Christmas Fruit Cake, also known as Kerala Plum Cake, where dried fruits are soaked in rum and mixed into the cake batter. This is the most popular cake in Kerala during Christmas time.
Boil and Bake Fruit Cake, is my version of non alcoholic cake, and a last minute fruit cake, for those who did not get time to soak the dry fruits...the dried fruits are boiled, so that it becomes soft and tender and then added to the cake batter.
