On the 11th Day of my Christmas Bakes & Treats I bring to you yet another version of Orange Juice fully loaded fruits and Nuts christmas Cake..
This cake is more of a confection than a cake. It makes a beautiful, festive presentation. This recipe was shared by a friend . The most important thing to remember is to leave all the fruits and nuts whole. & slice the cake thin.
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 pound red candied cherries
1 pound green candied cherries
1 pound Brazil nuts
1 pound walnut halves
1 pound pecan halves
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 – 9 inch bunt pans and line them with parchment or waxed paper.
2.Beat eggs, salt and vanilla together until very light in color. Stir in sugar, 1 cup flour and baking powder.
3.Place cherries, nuts, and dates into a large bowl. Dust with the remaining 1/2 cup flour. Then stir in sugar mixture. There is very little batter which makes this a very stiff mixture. Mix with hands.
4.Press batter into prepared loaf pans. Bake for 1 hour.
