Of ‘Happily Intoxicated’ dry fruits

Tis’ the season to be jolly…fa la la la la la la la
It’s that time of the year again!


If you’re from Kerala, India, you would know more than a thing or two about plum cakes/ fruit cakes. The bakeries brim over with zillions of plum cakes.  Christmas has to have a fruit cake coming with it. I’ve never been a huge fan of plum cakes, but everyone else in the family is, especially the mister

 So, I thought why not I soak some fruits this year for a larger cause – the family. I have been eyeing Ria’s  fruit cake recipe(Ria’s collection) for a while now.  I’ve soaked the fruit as per her ‘Betty Mama’s’ recipe.  One feels delighted while soaking the fruits; the ingredients are soooooo christmasy (I know…you’re thinking…duh…it’s Christmas!)

I soaked 2 batches and love looking at it every other day! They look so happy, soaking up the rum and other goodies.  Anchechi tells me it smells like a fruit cake already!...I wanted to make the fruit cake this week, but we planned a sudden trip so, will make the cake after I return.

Till then, let’s soak up the season people!
