Eggless Christmas Fruit Cake Recipe
Eggless Christmas Fruit Cake / Eggless plum cake
Last year I posted Plum cake with eggs. Last year itself I tried Eggless Christmas Fruit cake. But I had no time to post. It came out very well and the taste was very good. Chopping the dried fruits is only the difficult thing. But making fruit cake is very easy. I already uploaded soaking of driedfruits.
