Soaking fruits for Christmas Plum Cake

Updated: Nov 7

Christmas has always been my favorite Holiday of the year and Christmas Plum Cake is my most favorite Holiday Cake.

Christmas Plum Cake is a rich, moist and delicious cake loaded with dry fruits and nuts.

The preparation for this Cake starts a month before Christmas, which starts with soaking the dry fruits and nuts. This soaking step can be done a month before Christmas and the baking of the cake will be done a few days before Christmas. You can soak the dry fruits for overnight and bake the cake next day. When the dry fruits are soaked for a long time, they absorb the liquid and become plump. When baked, some of the liquid oozes out of the cake batter, resulting in a moist cake.

So when you soak fruits ahead of time, you get a better cake, moist and with the flavors infused.


  • 1/4 cup Cashew nuts

  • 1/4 cup Almonds

  • 1/4 cup Black raisins

  • 1/4 cup Dried Cranberries

  • 1/4 cup Walnuts

  • 1/4 cup Pecans

  • 1/4 cup Tutti fruity

  • 2 cups Silver Rum


  • Chop all the dry fruits and nuts into small pieces.

  • Add them into a clean dry glass jar.

  • Add rum and mix well.

  • Seal the jar with a lid and keep it in a cool, dry place.


  • You can add in any dried fruit of your choice.

  • Make sure you use only glass or ceramic jars to soak the fruits. Any other container may react with alcohol and could be harmful.
