This year, Chef Rajan Bakery  want to share all my cheer with you and hence, I have planned some lovely recipes for you guys to try out.

This fastival season is different than every other because we’ll be staying at home celebrating with our family and close friends. So why not make it a little more special  buy with and for your loved ones? And you know what! Nothing says Christmas better than a good ol’ Plum Cake! So let’s make an eggless plum cake that is made with the warmest of spices, is rich and absolutely delicious!

eggless plum cake

Plum Cake refers to a wide range of cakes made with either dried fruit (such as currants, raisins or prunes) or with fresh fruit. There is a wide range of popular plum cakes and puddings. In India, plum cake has been served around the time of the Christmas holiday season, and may have additional ingredients such as rum or brandy added.

In the last two centuries since it first travelled out of England, the plum cake has reached every corner of the world. Every country, region and family has a different version of the recipe. Some are made with nuts soaked in rum, some are fed with sherry or brandy for weeks after being baked, and some have no alcohol at all.

For the soak
Traditionally, dry fruits are soaked in rum/brandy for months or even years before using them for baking a Christmas Plum Cake. But let’s be honest, not everybody remembers to do this and if this sounds like you, then you’re at the right place. For this eggless plum cake, I don’t use alcohol and use a very quick, cheat method of cooking my dry fruits with orange juice, lemon juice and some water. What this does is make the dry fruits extremely flavorful for the cake. I use tutti frutti, raisins, dried apricots, dried cranberries and prunes for this plum cake. But you can use any dry fruits you have in your kitchen!

For the cake
Moreover, I make this plum cake eggless and use yogurt to make a moist, soft cake. I recommend using Yogurt as a substitute to eggs. It gives the cake a very similar texture and makes it fluffy and light. I also use brown sugar in the cake batter to give it a better depth of flavor and beautiful deep color.
