Particular Fruit Cake Recipe
This particular fruit cake recipe is a little more complicated than some other recipes for fruit cakes, but it is very worth the extra effort. The key to making a good holiday cake is using the freshest and highest quality ingredients that you can. Sometimes, people will settle for lower quality ingredients just so they can cut down on the amount of time it will take to bake a cake. You do not have to do this with this great fruit recipe.
Take The Basic Ingredients And Combine Them:
Two cups of all purpose flour Two cups of sugar One tablespoon of cinnamon A pinch of salt A few drops of vanilla extract You will also need: One or two cup of canned fruit, such as peaches or strawberries A good pinch of baking powder A good measuring spoon The first step is to beat the flour and sugar together for about three minutes. Once this is done, you will add the cinnamon to the mixture. Next, you will add the salt and vanilla. Let the batter rest for about five minutes so that the ingredients can ‘melt’ into each other.
Prepare The Filling:
Bring a large saucepan to heat. Fill the pan with at least two inches of water so that the pan does not dry out completely. You do not want your fruit mixture to be too thick. Add your wet ingredients and stir them together until they are blended.
Once the ingredients are blended, remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack. Once they have cooled, test to make sure that they are properly coated with the cake coating. If you find any trouble, clean the cakes with a knife or other small tool to make sure that no food particles were left behind.

Check the calorie content before baking fruit cakes to make sure that there are no added sugar or fats in the recipe. Many recipes call for eggs or butter but the healthier alternative is to use a yogurt-based spreadable icing. Another option is to purchase fruit patties and place them on the cake as frosting. Another great thing about fruit cakes is that they are naturally sweet, unlike cakes that contain artificial ingredients that can make them taste bland.
