Brandy Fruits Cake

Brandy Fruits Cake
Another few more days, Christmas will be coming.
This year, I made this Brandy Fruits Cake way ahead of time, so that
this cake be able to age inside my fridge before giving to my friends.
If you wanted to make 10 cakes, then double the recipes.
While I was making this cake, my dear husband snooping in and out
and I know he can't wait for this Brandy Fruits Cake to be baked.
My dear daughter do not fancy fruits cake but at the end, she had the most
because she said those aged inside the fridge taste better than the one
not inside the fridge.
My son is complaining that I have been cooking and baking for my
husband and my daughter and not his favourite food.  
Ho! Ho! Ho! He is getting jealous.  
Well, coming soon will be his favourite food.   

Would like to wish all my Christian friends and all Christian in this world 
a Very Happy Merry Christmas To You and Family.  
May God shower his choicest blessings on you and
your family this Christmas.

You have to soak the mixed fruits with brandy two weeks or less before
you start to make this cake.  Cover with lid and leave at one side
and occasionally with a spoon, mix those mixed fruits. 
632g Mixed Fruits.
1 to 1 1/2 cups Brandy. (I put 1 cup)

*375g Plain Flour
*2 tbsp Milk Powder / 1 tsp ground nutmeg / 1 tsp mixed spices / 1 tsp cinnamon powder

Shift and mix those dry ingredients (*) well combined.

**226g Butter / 210 g Brown Sugar / 250 ml Orange Juice / 
**125 ml Treacle / 1 tsp Baking Soda.

***4 Eggs (slightly beaten with a fork)

Combine all the ingredients (**)  in a large saucepan with the mixed fruits.

Stir over low fire until sugar has dissolved. Remember to stir occasionally.  

Bring to boil for about 5 minutes.  Remember to stir occasionally.

Remove from fire and leave to cool.

Once the mixture is cool, pour in the beaten eggs (***) slowly 
and stir until combined.

Pour in the dry ingredients (*).

And mix until well combined.

Once the mixture is well combined.  Pour into prepared pan lined with greased
paper or aluminium tin foil. Bake for 1 hour at 190 Degree Celsius.
Once baked, take it out and let it cool.

Once cool, with a fine skewer I poke the cake with a few holes and 
then brush the top with brandy for a few times.
Cover the cake with aluminium foil and best eaten after a few days of aging
in the fridge.  Tie with a ribbon and present to your friends as
Christmas gift.

Snow man and my dear husband can't stop staring at those lovely Brandy Fruits Cake.
Have A Very Happy Merry And Wonderful Christmas With Your Family and Friends.
