Recently we did cake mixing with Dry fruits and Nuts, and so next its cake making right? Here comes the Non-Alcoholic Christmas cake with VIDEO from the SCRATCH (including the video of Caramel syrup).
As Christmas, Christmas cake is being the hero but imagines about the NON-ALCOHOLIC Christmas cake. It was divine and tastes heavenly, I am sure it with vanish in minutes in your home. Even now it’s not late, start soaking nuts and dry fruits now, and prepares the cake by tomorrow. I would say that the Christmas cake tastes best after 24 to 48 hrs. I would go for 48 hrs, but with kids I am sure it would not be possible. So I prepared three small cakes and a big one, small one can be consumed by them immediately and the bigger one after 48 hours.
