Fruit cakes are present at various Christmas events across the globe. However, they are made with slight variances. For example, in some cultures, walnuts, and other nuts, are added to the cake batter while in others, candied peel, citrus zests and/or orange juice, black tea, brandy or rum are added to the batter.
This fruit cake recipe makes a delicious cake. However, it also serves as a base for any vegan fruit cake. You can customise it by adding extra ingredients to it to make it more suited to your cultural or creative preferences. We should note that if you add any additional liquids to the recipe, you should reduce that amount from the quantity of almond milk used.
The amount of raisins in this recipe is the amount to keep this cake sweet, but not overpoweringly sweet. Therefore, it is more suitable or those who do not enjoy very sweet treats. However, the salted caramel sauce will be rather sweet so, for those who prefer to avoid very sweet treats you can omit the sauce.
We hope you enjoy this recipe and it helps you make the perfect fruit cake for your Christmas desserts.
