Christmas Condensed Milk Dry Fruits & Nuts Cake

Christmas is around and here everyone is really excited to enjoy the upcoming christmas holidays, yes from next week onwards we are going to be in christmas vacation..Waiting eagerly to go around during this christmas vacations, also for shopping..My lil ones are really getting ready with their big shopping list , its time to spend money and having some festive foods..Today i prepared some dry fruits and nuts cake to start our christmas feast, christmas is somewat diwali for us coz here all are in christmas fever....so its quite a festive time for everyone at home..I have prepared this yummyilicious cake with some dry fruits and nuts soaked in rhum before few days back and today i made this cake with condensed milk just to change my usual way of making out cakes...Usually i used to soak dry fruits and nut in rhum before a month back but this time i was bit lazy and i prepared them 10days back, eventhough those soaked nuts and fruits were prefect to make out this gorgeous cake..Delicious christmas cake with condensed milk tastes marvellous with a cup of hot coffee..




To Soak:
1/2cup Raisins
1/4cup Dry apricots (chopped)
1/2cup Tutty fruity chunks
1/2cup Cashew nuts (chopped)
1/2cup Almond nuts (chopped)
2tbsp Orange peel
1/2cup Rhum (i used negrita rhum)

Soak all these fruits and nuts in rhum in an air tightened bottle before a month or few weeks..store everything in fridge , can use for making cakes furtherly..

For Cake:
2cups All purpose flour
1/2cup Sugar
1/2cup Sweetened Condensed milk
1cup Butter
4nos Eggs
1tsp Baking powder
1tsp Vanilla essence
1/2cup Soaked fruits and nuts

Preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet in a loaf mould... grease the baking sheet, keep aside..Beat the butter and sugar until they turns creamy, add the eggs one by one and the sweetened condensed milk to the butter and sugar mixture until everything turns soft...meanwhile sift the flour and baking powder, keep aside....Add the sifted flour, vanilla essence and soaked fruits and nuts to the egg-sugar mixture, mix everything well with a spatula until everything get well mixed, dont use beater, this may break the fruits also dont over mix..

Pour the cake batter to the already prepared loaf mould and bake in middle rack for 45minutes or until the skewers insert come out clean..

Enjoy this delicious cake...
