I and my son both are a die-hard cake lover. How can we miss making a Christmas cake? All we need is a reason to eat cake. A Christmas cake is a rich fruit cake covered with marzipan and icing, eaten at Christmas. These cakes were made in advance, almost two months in advance. Brandy, Whisky, and Rum were poured in the cakes from time to time until Christmas. The process is called “feeding” the cake. This feeding process helps to mature the cake. This Christmas season, I thought to bake my own Christmas cake rather than buying it from the market. Since I was baking it for my family so I was looking for a Non-alcoholic Christmas Cake recipe without eggs that everyone in the family could enjoy. Let's start with the recipe.
