Plum Cake/Fruit Cake

Plum Cake/Fruit Cake

Plum cakes are also known as Fruit cake or Christmas cake. The traditional plum cake has alcohol content in it. I have modified the traditional cake recipe into an easy and non-alcohol cake recipe. The cake tasted exactly or more tastier than the traditional one.
