After all its a Christmas month so I wanted to something different so tried to do plum cake. But that ended up really mess. I got the recipe from blog did some variations to that but the cake ended up very bad I didn't get the Pic of it. Here is the recipe of what I did
750 Gram Mixed dry fruits (raisins, black currants, cranberries) mixed it in grape juice and left it overnight
1 1/2 cups All purpose flour
1 Zest of lemon
1 Zest of orange
1/4 tsp Clove powder
1/2 tsp Ginger powder
1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder
50 Gram Tuti fruity
250 Gram Butter - I used melted butter
200 Gram Brown sugar
1/2 tsp Baking powder
100 Gram Almond powder
1 tsp Vanilla essence
I did not use eggs in this recipe.
I mixed all the above said ingredients and the batter was thick for me so I added little hot water and then added some more melted butter to it. Then greased a pan and baked it using a pressure cooker.
After some time when I checked the cake it was very light brown in color and it was cooked all the sides so I took it out. After some time when I checked I could see the bottom of the cake was exactly the same color what i was expecting dark brown color. Also when I tried cutting the cake it was not in a proper form. It started breaking in to small pieces.
I am not sure of what is wrong in this. For brown color I can try caramelizing the white sugar. But I am not sure why It broke in to pieces. Can anyone please help me me to correct my mistake. I want to make this again next week. Thanks for your help.
