How to Make Caramel for Fruit Cake

The cake is so simple to make and the flavour of the dark caramel just wafts through the cake which i love. I hope you will try this and enjoy your holidays. The main flavour and colour for the cake comes from the caramel which we add. It is easy to make. But make sure you don't burn the caramel.

Now take sugar in a sauce pan and cook it on medium high heat till it gets golden in colour. Don't stir the caramel, just swirl the pan. When the caramel reaches the nice colour add in water and mix well. Set aside to cool down.

How to Make Caramel Fruit Cake Recipe

  • Two days before soak all your dried fruits and nuts in rum, you can soak them in orange juice as well.
  • On the day of baking. Start by preheating oven to 180 degree C. Grease a 8 inch round cake pan with oil and dust it with flour. Set aside.
  • Take the dried fruits and add two tbsp of flour. Toss well and set aside.
  • Now take flour, baking powder and baking soda in a sifter and sieve it well. Set aside.
  • Now take sugar in a sauce pan and cook it on medium high heat till it gets golden in colour. Don't stir the caramel, just swirl the pan. Now when the caramel reaches the nice colour add in water and mix well. Set aside to cool down.

  • Take butter, sugar and vanilla in a bowl and whip till creamy. Add in egg yolks and whip again.

    hi Aarthi,
    First of all I am a huge fan of your blog.Your blog has helped me through the difficult times I had in cooking, during the initial stages of marriage.I just wanted to ask you whether the orange juice that you have mention is a substitute for rum if not could you please suggest one?

    Hi aarthi,
    If we soak the dry fruits in orange juice should that be kept in refrigerator or should we leave that bowl out..
    If we keep it out does that soaking mixture gets spoiled? Orange juice can be kept outside for 2 days?
