Egg Free, Alcohol Free, Whole Wheat Christmas Fruit Cake

Christmas season is already here so how could I forget about everyone’s favorite Christmas Cake 🤗I created this recipe last weekend especially for the blog, and this one is absolutely my style with 100% whole wheat flour, egg free, alcohol free & of course uses raw unrefined sugar hence, definitely a lot healthier than what you get normally 😍DSCN0382.JPG

It came out so well, my Husband and Brother both loved it so much that they could not even wait for it to cool down and slice 😋😂DSCN0418.JPG

The recipe is not that tough, traditionally they soak fruits in alcohol for quite some time but as we don’t consume any alcohol so I soaked the fruits in orange juice for an hour(there is a trick to it just read on 😉) So, here is the detailed step by step recipe for you tho create magic this Christmas 🤗
