Looking for the best recipe for plum cake this holiday season? Try this rich soft Christmas Plum Cake recipe that Chef Zaki will bake for you in this video.

The Evoma Christmas Cake is a work of art cooked up using our own traditional cake baking techniques, a healthy mix of fruits and nuts and honey, and the Christmas spirits - Old Monk, Romanov, Royal Challenge and their inebriated brethren.


The Christmas Cake mixing was done earlier this month, and now we share a unique recipe and baking video guide for the very rich Evoma Christmas Plum Cake / Fruit n Nut Cake.

The chopped, washed and dried fruits and nuts are mixed with wine, liquor, honey and fruit juices, and soak in the rich aroma and essence of all the juices.

This should be done for at least 30-45 days to capture the rich flavour and aroma. These soaked nuts play a critical role in the plum cake.

Start first by mixing the butter and sugar together until sugar melts completely. Then start adding eggs one by one, and keep blending till it gets the smooth texture. Now gently fold in the flour step by step into the batter and mix it without lumps.
