Finally the month has arrived for which everyone waits.yes I’m talking about December,the month of Christmas and new year.especially the month,in which we can have the most favourite cake of every person,the fruit cake or the Christmas cake.
Today I’m going to share the recipe of Eggless Fruit Cake.it’s time to get ready for Christmas celebrations,which is incomplete without fruit cake.more or less everyone starts the preparation to make delicious fruit cake from the 1st week of December.to make the authentic fruit cake,it is very important to soak our dry fruits and our tutti frutti in rum.rum increases the flavour of the cake.we need to chop our dry fruits and tutti frutti and soak it in rum for about 10-15 minutes.after that it will get ready to make.but in India most of the families want to avoid the alcoholic part in their food.so I’m not using the soaked dry fruits.you can make tutti frutti at your house.for that check the recipe of tutti frutti I’ve shared before.
I’m not using eggs in this cake.because I’m going to share the recipe of Eggless Fruit Cake.I’m going to make this Eggless Fruit Cake in gas oven with the help of pressure cooker.you’ll be very happy to see the result.so let’s start our Eggless Fruit Cake.

- Now take all the dry fruits (almond,raisins,cashew,tutti frutti) and put 2 teaspoon flour in it.mix them well that the flour can coat all the fruits evenly.Now remove the extra flour(if present)
- Grease the cake mould well with 2 teaspoon of butter or refined oil.Sprinkle Some Flour and remove The extra by Tapping The mould.

- You can add some milk into the batter if you think the batter is very thick.we don’t need very thick or a thin batter.our batter should be in semi thick consistency.
- now put 3/4th of the flour coated dry fruits into the batter and mix them with the whole thing.
- Now pour all the batter in The Greased Mould and tap it For 2 times on the Kitchen Surface.It will take the bubbles up.you can remove the bubbles by pricking it with a toothpick.
