Christmas Plum Cake Recipe
Christmas is one time of the year that I have always been extremely excited & happy around. In fact, December gives those vibes to most people in the city, it has that charm about it. This year I made myself & my family proud by cooking up an entire Christmas feast. Off course the meal turned out fab & went great with my favourite Jacob Creeks Rose, but the finale was the Plum Cake which made the entire feast even better. I made this easy Plum Cake with super easy recipe by Chef Shreyas Shashidhar – Junior Sous Chef at ITC Maratha.
This recipe of Plum Cake comes together in no time & super easy & tastes amazing. Plum Cakes are a must on Christmas. The soaked fruits, nuts & spices is what makes it so good. If you want to make a Plum Cake without alcohol, you may soak the fruits in a mix of orange & grape juice with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, star anise, vanilla & orange zest for at least two days & use accordingly. If you missed out on having it this year, here is an easy recipe of the delicious Plum Cake that featured on my Christmas Feast.
