Wine Fruit Cake#SundayFunday

Fruit cake is one of the most popular recipes during Christmas. Make this wine fruit cake and it's delicious. For this cake you can use any wine, red or white. I have used red wine.
450 Grams Unsalted Butter
450 Grams Caster Sugar
450 Grams All purpose Flour
10 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Baking powder
½ Teaspoon Baking soda
2 Teaspoons Mixed Fruit essence
2 Tablespoon Heaped Molasses
1 Nutmeg - grated
400 Grams Mixed Fruits
600 Ml Wine

Soak the mixed fruits in wine for a month or more.
An hour before starting to make the cake batter, place the mixed fruits in a colander and drain all the wine. Keep the wine and fruits separately.
Grease and line 2 baking tins with parchment paper on all sides.
Mix the drained fruits with 4 tablespoons of flour ( from the measured flour), mix well, keep aside.
Sieve the flour, salt, nutmeg, baking powder and soda, keep aside.
In a bowl break the eggs and keep aside. Add the essence in it and lightly beat them.
Cream the butter till light and fluffy then add the caster sugar in batches and continue beating till the batter turns creamy, add little of egg at a time and continue beating till all the eggs are incorporated. Add the molasses , give it mix, then add in sieved flour again in batches and on low speed continue beating. When all the flour is incorporated, add the fruits and fold in with a spatula gently till the fruits are well mixed into the batter.
Pour this into the prepared tins and bake in a pre heated oven at 170 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes or till a skewer comes our clean. As soon as the cake is out of the oven pour ½ cup each of wine in the baked cake tins. Let it soak, when cool cling wrap the tins and keep it overnight. Next day only slice and enjoy, You can cling wrap the tins and keep it for a month. These stay good and taste even more delicious.
