Plum Cake Recipe

I make cakes very often but the only time i make fruit cake is during Christmas.

 Lets see how to make Plum Cake Recipe. Christmas is always special to me because its the month of Celebrations,  vacation and moreover it is the month of shopping!!!!! . I celebrate the entire month starting from day 1 - assembling the Christmas tree till month end / year end.Too much fun throughout the month from decorating the house house till making snacks / sweets / dinner and lot more. The full month is filled with joy ,lights and is incomplete without " Cake " .

I never thought that Christmas cakes were this easy to make until i baked my first cake. Every year my dad buys 50+ cakes to distribute to his friends and family and that is the only time we buy plum cake for our home. Myself and my sister enjoy the cake and finishes it very soon even before my mom takes her first bite.But the only thing i hate about the store bought cake is they add some dates to the cake which i don't like but thank god now i can customize my cake by ignoring dates.

This cake is originally made by soaking the dry fruits and nuts in Rum for minimum 1 month, but i am not going to use alcohol  instead i am going to use grape juice. so i am sharing this " plum cake recipe without rum " today.

Serving Size          :  6 people

Preparation Time : 2 days

Cooking Time       : 1 hour 15 minutes

  • For Soaking
  • 1.5 cup Black Raisins
  • 1 cup Cherry
  • 1 cup Fruit mix or Tutti frutti
  • 1 cup Mixed Nuts (cashews, almonds, walnuts)
  • 2 Cup Grape Juice or Rum
  • For Sugar Caramel
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1/2 cup Boiling Water
  • Spices
  • 1 inch Cinnamon
  • 4 Cloves
  • 3 Cardamom
  • For Cake Batter
  • 2 cup All purpose flour / Maida
  • 2 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Melted Butter
  • 5 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla extract

  1. Soak dry fruits and nuts in grape juice for minimum 1 day
  2. make sugar caramel
  3. powder the spices
  4. mix the wet ingredients
  5. add the dry ingredients and the soaked fruits
  6. Bake it at 350 F or 180 C for 70-80 minutes
  7. Plum cake is ready to be served

  1. The longer you soak the dry fruits and nuts tastier the cake becomes.
  2. you can any fruits of your choice like prunes, dates, apricots etc..
  3. Black Raisins add more taste to the recipe so i prefer to add more black raisins than all other ingredients .You can also mix 1/2 cup of golden raisins to it.
  4. If you want to make the cake instantly then boil the dry fruits and the nuts along with the juice for 3-4 minutes and let it cool completely and then add it to the cake batter.
  5. Do not add cold water to the caramelized sugar syrup , if we add cold water then the sugar will crystallize and will take lot of time to get into the proper consistency, so use hot water to prevent sugar crystallization.
  6. If we grind only the spices we will not end up with fine powder (because of the less quantity) so add some sugar to it and grind the spices into a very fine powder.
