Fruit Cake: The Holiday Essential
by: Janice C. Lim





The fruit cake has become more than just a Christmas treat. Loved by young and old people alike, this delicious treat has had quite a colorful history and a tradition that spans even today. Did you know that the fruit cake industry began during the Roman period? The belief was that the fruit cake would provide blessings to them during the time of harvest. The combination of fruit and nuts made this a favorite delicacy by people during this time.

While it was regarded as a type of food that will bring blessings, in the 1800s, the exact opposite happened. It was believed to be sinful and was prohibited in some regions. Not long after, the fruit cake was again regarded as a treat that could help bring love to unmarried individuals. The fruit cake became a symbol of hope as well; in many parts of England, they put a small slice under their pillow so they can start to dream about their future loved one.

What exactly is fruit cake made of? The ingredients that are included in the classic fruit cake may vary, but it is typically battered together with some nuts and a little rum or brandy. Holidays are almost never complete without a slice of fruit cake. Most people would associate the fruit cake to good cheer during the Christmas season.

One of the biggest advantages of fruit cake would be that it can last for weeks and months. Unlike other types of cake, as long as you keep it refrigerated, it will not easily spoil. The rum in the fruit cake is what makes this treat lasts longer, and more delicious at that! The fruit cake is also best enjoyed when it is cold or frozen. Sometimes, people opt to keep it for several days to let the flavor and the brandy sink in. It is also typically wrapped in foil and is perfect for parties and gatherings during the holidays. If you want to serve fruit cake to younger family members, you can substitute alcohol for fruit juice. Make sure you also let the fruit juice be absorbed well by the dough to add to its flavor and rich taste.

There are so many things that you can serve on the Christmas table during the holidays, and fruit cake should always be one of them! This special treat is something that you and your loved ones will surely enjoy. Having a slice of fruit cake will really help get you in the spirit of the holiday season.

Aside from that, you can also opt to give out fruit cake to your family and friends as gifts! They will surely love having this on their dinner tables as well. The fruit cake is also best served with tea, coffee or a glass of wine.

If you plan to buy fruit cake for the holiday season, make sure that you are able to find those that use authentic fruit and not just the artificial kind. There are a lot of stores and specialty shops online that will create homemade fruit cake for you. Take the time to shop around and enjoy a great slice of the ultimate Christmas cake!
