Christmas Cake by Vinaya Pai

First of all, I heartily thank Rammohan Pai and Vinaya Pai for being our guests in the blog.

My friend Rammohan Pai and his wife Vinaya Pai make this cake every year to return favours or to share and celebrate the joy of the season! The Pai family hails from Mangalore and now happily settled in Milwaukee USA.
Watch the two part video in which Mrs Pai meticulously demonstrates how to make the cake, while Mr Pai explains each step to follow with excellent video coverage!
Part 1

The complete list of ingredients and process is here :
2 1/4 Cup of Sultanas
1 1/2 Cup of Raisins
1 1/2 Cup of Currants
3/4 Cup of Glazed Cherries
1/2 Cup of Orange and Lemon Peels
1/4 Cup of Glazed Pine Apples
1/4 Cup of Dried and Cut Apricots
1 1/2 cup of Butter
1 cup of Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup of Rum/Brandy
5 Eggs lightly beaten
1 Tablespoon of Molasses

Put all fruits in a heavy bottom pan, add the butter, brown sugar, brandy/rum and water.
In medium heat stir until the butter melts, bring it to a boil in medium heat still and let it simmer for about 15 minutes in low heat.
Remove the pan and let it cool to room temperature and leave it overnight.
Don’t refrigerate.
Next day add beaten eggs, molasses, flour, baking powder to the fruit mix and mix it well.
Grease 9x11 pan,(or line with wax paper-optional ), fill upto 1/2, sprinkle cut almonds on the top.

Allow it to cool and cut into pieces.
