  • 1.5 tsp baking powder

  • 3 pinch baking soda

  • 60 gm butter

  • 1 tbsp melted butter for greasing

  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder

  • 1.5 tsp vanilla essence

  • 1/2 cup dark rum

  • 8-10 almonds, chopped (for garnishing)


  • Beat the eggs properly with rum and vanilla essence until blended. Keep aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix the butter and brown sugar properly. Keep mixing them until the butter has no lumps.
  • Now, add all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon powder and give it a quick mix.
  • For batter, pour the blended egg mixture on the dry mixture and whisk properly.
  • Add dry fruits and mix very well with the batter.
  • Preheat the oven in convection mode on 180 °C for 10 minutes.

  • Place the baking vessel carefully in the centre of the oven and bake for 45 minutes on 180 °C. The baking time may vary from oven to oven. Read your oven instructions properly.
  • Once the baking time is over, insert a sharp knife to check if it is properly baked. If the knife comes out clean, the cake is done. If not, bake it for some more time.
  • Once it is done, remove the cake from the oven and let it cool down completely for 1 hour.
  • With the help of toothpick make small holes on the cake and spread 3-4 table-spoon rum on the top of it. Let the cake absorb the rum. Your Rich Fruitcake is ready now.
