Second Anniversary of Priya's Feast-Merry X'mas to all


                                                 Priya's Feast has turned Two years,last friday....Thank you all for being with me and without your support ,i couldnt reached it...To Cherish,last year seemed to be a real battle of life i went throughed.....This year,I joined Daring Bakers and Sweet Punch ,explored to world of (best) baking....And most best part of my blog was,Hansika joined cooking with me...Tiramisu is the first help ,i got from her...Another best part is ,i made Princess cake for her birthday...
                                                      I wish to thank my cousin ramya,who brought me to the world of blogging on cooking......Or,I must have become baby care blogger...Thank you,ramya....
                                                        This year,I met so many accidents in my kitchen that really put me back from cooking and blogging......My hands were full of burns to every inch....The hot water splash really made me to hop,and hide my face....But that doesnt stop me in learning and exploring in my passion of cooking.....Its never always "THE" feast at home,but some bread and dosa made our day.........
                                                      I need to thank my hubby who has been with me and loves this blog more than i do....He has put things to ease,even when he was not around.Today's post is Christmas cake,which i promised to sponsor for christmas ceremony...I was thrilled to bake,while Chef Senthil by Courtyard Marriott gave me a recipe...I tried and thought ,its exactly the plum cake i had at school...But still i want to do the best cake,When Ria posted the recipe....I decided to give a try....I must say, its not just Fruit cake....Must named it Royal Rich Fruit Cake....Look at the ingredients ,she has mentioned...I must say u have to try it ....try it....you will never stop munching it....
                                             The Christmas ceremony went very well and the cake was over in minute...Everyone was surprised to know its a homemade...

                                                       
The star is glittering in our balcony,while hansika practicing the carol and enjoying to the core....I made this yummiest cake,mixing the fruits with array of ingredients





                                                             
                                                          

                                                    
The Rest follows...



I used yellow and brown raisins and apricots,cherries etc.,


Orange peels and plums


Ginger Candied


Mix all the dry fruits in the large bowl


I made the spice masala -freshy ready


Add ginger candied powder


Orange juice


I used rum and brandy essence along with Vanilla essence


Squeezed some jam


Caramel sauce


and finally the spice powder


Hands played best role in mixing the whole thing...I am sure u cannot mix it with any spatula,the liquid wont blend with dry fruits...


I soaked the mix for overnight...and made 5x of the recipe....Needless to say,y i did so...


Its ready to bake



Half of the soaked dry fruits are over,and i am waiting to make another batch of cake...My hubby is not ready  to leave without the cake...The cake tastes better when the day passes by and it didnt spoil....


Check her recipe here......and dont forget me ,since i recommended this to u....


This rabbit is loved by hansika,she named it chitti


Merry Christmas and Happy holidays!!!!!
