How to soak Dry Fruits for Rich Fruit Cake
But shake or mix daily. But the idea is just to brush all over the cake just once daily. So brushing or feeding the cake prevents it from getting spoilt as well as keeps it moist. Hope your doubts have been cleared. Hi Renees would u pls share the recipe for this 1 kg dry fruits that have been soaked! Hi there was a glitch and I received ur comment.
We like a lot of nuts, so I add more of that…followed by raisins and then a little of everything like cherries, orange zests, cranberries. I buy a packet or 2 of the dry fruit mixture mostly and extra nuts n raisins I add. I had a doubt regarding the baking. Any idea as to what should be my temp settings?
You can surely put the batter in 2 separate tins and bake it together in the oven. The temp will remain the same C. However, the time taken to bake might be lesser. It actually depends on ur baking tray.
All the best and let me know how it turns out. Hi Renee hope u are doing fine. I am very much interested in preparing a rum cake for this Christmas.
I have read your recipe for soaking the fruits, i would highly appreciate if u could kindly share the full recipe of the rum cake including the batter and the baking…. Thanks a lot and await for your recipe. Now, if you want an alcohol-free cake, you can also instead use orange juice to soak the dry fruits, but such a cake will not keep for as long and I would suggest making it only a couple of days before it is meant to be eaten.
Use a clean, dry, air-tight glass jar to soak the fruits. No metallic containers please! Once the fruits are soaked, give them a stir with a wooden spoon every days. Store the jar in a cool, dry place away from sunlight.

My mom always made fruit cake but started months in advance. They were wrapped in alcohol soaked cheesecloth. This was also the traditional wedding cake although I think that might have fallen out of fashion. Enjoy the winter wonderland!

Thank you so much Johanne! Shake well, or else you can give this a gentle stir with a spoon before covering with lid. Keep this in a cool, dark place. Keep doing this until you bake the cake.
