We wish you and your family a very Happy new year!
And to celebrate the New Year, we have the homemade plum cake.
Butter 100 gms
All purpose flour 100 gms
Rum 3-4 tsps
Cashews A handful
Raisins A handful
Cocoa powder 1tbsp
Soak the cashews and raisins in rum for 3-4 hours.
Beat the butter. Add sugar and beat again till soft and fluffy.
Add the rum-dry fruits mix, cocoa powder and flour to the butter-sugar and beat hard to make cake dough without any lumps.
Dust the cake tin base with maida and oil.
Pour the dough onto an oiled cake tin.
Microwave in for around 30-35 minutes or till the centre tests done. If a microwave is unavailable, add water into the pressure cooker. Keep a dish overturned. Place the cake tin on top of this overturned dish, cover and cook for 30-35 minutes without the whistle.
Dress the cake with grated chocolate and Choco-dipped cherries and serve. Hope the whole year is a celebration for you and enjoy the beginning with the plum cake.
