Cakes & Christmas Carols for Vegetarians!

Christmas is all about celebrating with loved ones! Dazzle your Christmas dinner with a stunning vegetarian cake to make the meal a sweet, memorable one!. Pies, cupcakes, and cookies are all great options for dessert, but nothing is quite as sophisticated and extravagant as a gorgeous homemade cake!

Traditional Christmas fruit cake is a yummy treat made by soaking dried fruits and nuts in rum or wine and mixing with fragrant spices in a simple from-scratch batter. To make the eggless version, use a blend of whole wheat flour (atta) and all-purpose flour (maida). This helps to create a wonderfully tender and fluffy cake every time!

.INGREDIENTS:

  • 3/4 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 3/4 Cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 3 Cups Chopped Dried Fruits (Any Combination)
  • 3 Cups Chopped Nuts (Any Nuts)
  • 3/4 Cup Applesauce (Instead Of 3 Eggs)
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 5 To 10 Drops Tea Masala Extract (Optional)

  3. In a large bowl whisk together all purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and light brown sugar.
  4. Also add the chopped dried fruits and nuts of your choice. Make sure that the dried fruits are not lumped together. Use your fingers mix it thoroughly.
  5. In a liquid measuring mug, measure 3/4th cup of applesauce. Add the vanilla extract, 1/4 cup water and tea masala extract (if using). Whisk it nicely.

  9. Once out of the oven, leave the pan on a wire rack and let it cool completely before making slices.
