It is the holiday season..There must be lot of gifting going on...My favourite gifts to give has to be edible ones. Specially home baked stuffs. Giving homemade goodies to your friends and families show the person how much effort you have put for them and makes them feel special..
Rum Fruit Cake
Chocolate Plum Cake
Eggless Fruit Cake
Microwave Fruit Cake
Thinking about what to make, i am here to give you ideas..This recipe is created just for you..It is such a great holiday recipe, it is so easy to make and taste so delicious plus it is great for gifting, so much portable and stays good for a really long time.
This is not like your regular fruit cake, it is a mocha fruit cake. It has coffee involved, if you are a great coffee lover then you will love this for sure. I used my favourite Dunkin’ Donuts® Orginal blend coffee in this..I can never have enough of it. Normally i soak my dried fruits in rum, but this time i soaked them in a cup of a strong coffee and it gave the fruits a subtle coffee flavour and tasted so delicious. More important it will make your house smell divine.
