How to make an Eggless Fruit Cake. 10

I rarely make fruit cakes, but the holiday season got me in the mood for baking one.

I decided to try making eggless fruit cake and was actually pleased with the results – It was very scrumptious and soft.

This fruit cake recipe is quite easy to prepare, there are no eggs, and I also substituted margarine for oil. I eliminated the whole creaming process in cake making, and using oil instead of margarine made the cakes less dense.

 I just poured the oil on soaked fruits, followed by the dry ingredients, mixed the two, and it was ready for baking.

I didn’t use alcohol, and I soaked the fruits in orange juice. You may soak also soak them in apple juice or non-  alcoholic drinks like Pure Heaven.  I just soaked the fruits for a short period, soaking for 48 hours or at least overnight will allow the fruits to be soft as long as they are refrigerated.
