A very very Christmas-sy fruit cake full of joy!
Add the water, 1/3 cup sugar, Vanilla essence, cranberry sauce and fruits in a sauce pan and bring to a boil
Once boiled, turn off the heat and let it cool
Prepare the cake tin by brushing with oil and dusting with the flour, or use a non stick cooking spray
Mix all the remaining ingredients together thoroughly (except the flour for the fruits)
Preheat your oven at 200 degree Fahrenheit for 10 minutes
Strain the fruits from the liquid and toss in flour so that all the pieces are coated with a thin layer of flour
Add the strained liquid to the batter and mix well
Now slowly fold in the fruits into the batter
Pour into the cake tin evenly
Place in the oven
Bake at 360 degree Fahrenheit for 50 minutes
Test by inserting a skewer or a spaghetti stick, if it comes out clean your cake is done
Remove from oven and let it cool down completely
Serve with a fruity wine.. Merry Christmas!
