Bake of the Day: 90 Minute Fruit Cake
Christmas is just 1 day away. If you didn’t make a fruitcake and think you don’t have time to make it, think again. This 90 minute fruitcake is just for you. Instead of making loaves or round shaped fruitcakes, these mini bundt cakes are very easy to put together and taste almost like the regular fruitcake.
Last year I made an eggless Christmas Fruitcake that involved soaking in the dry fruit and nuts in orange juice or some kind of alcohol for at least 1 day or more to get the best flavor. This year I wanted to make something different and when I saw these mini bundt cake recipe in the King Arthur catalog, I knew I found myself a good recipe.
This cake has all the trimmings of the regular fruitcake like the spices and fruit & nuts, but this one is less complicated and less time consuming, which is perfect when you are trying to make it at the last minute. If you have a mini cakelette or mini bundt pan, you will have a dozen delicious fruitcakes out of the oven in half an hour.
