Fruitcake (also called fruit cake or fruit bread) is a kind of cake which is typically served at celebrations, such as weddings and Christmas.
The earliest recipe of this dessert originates from ancient Rome, and it involves pomegranate seeds, pine nuts and raisins.
The recipes vary a lot in terms of ingredients and fruit used, and the reason has to do with the available ingredients at certain times in history.
A fruitcake is made with candied or dried fruit, nuts and spices. If you want to be extra, you can even soak the fruit in strong alcohol!
This recipe doesn't take long to make, so if you still have some time available, you can use it to decorate it any way you like. Or you can simply leave it bare!
If you want something fast, you can decorate it like I did, using a glaze made of powdered sugar and orange juice. So yummy!
