The Buttermilk Fruit Cake is one of those cakes that is perfect any time of the day!!! Its super moist and buttery. It is nicely spiced with ground cinnamon, dried ginger powder and ground cloves. It is also loaded with dried and candied fruits (Tutti Fruitty). On top of this, it is egg less and alcohol free. Isn’t that great??? All you have do is gather a few ingredients, mix them and bake the cake, that simple!!
This cake will stay fresher longer because of the high sugar content available in the raisins and fig. Buttermilk Fruit Cake is excellent warm from the oven or at room temperature. You can refrigerator it for about a week. I used golden raisins, but you can also use black raisins. **I used curd / yogurt(homemade). You can use store bought buttermilk also. Please don’t use very thin buttermilk.
Christmas is coming. No need to soak dried fruits. Just mix all the ingredients and bake them. Your yummy Buttermilk Fruit Cake for Christmas party is ready!!! 🙂
