Jamaican Fruit Cake Recipe!

The preparation is definitely not as difficult to make as you might have initially thought.

Delicious Jamaican fruit cake

The recipe uses standard cake ingredients. The fruits, which consist of raisins, cherries, papaya, dates, prunes and any other dried fruits, are prepared either by boiling in wine or soaked in the wine for at least 3 weeks.

Butter and sugar are creamed till the mixture becomes light and fluffy. Next, eggs, rum and vanilla are added to the mixture, while beating continuously. To this mixture, the prepared fruit mixtures, red wine, a small amount of rum (optional) and molasses are added.

The flour mixture is then folded into this mixture, and mixed properly to make the cake batter. The mixture is then baked in greased baking dishes on medium high heat till it is properly baked, and a pick comes out clean when inserted.

Additional wine or rum can also be brushed onto the cake as needed to keep it moist.

This fruit cake is a delicacy at Christmas time in Jamaica. No Christmas in Jamaica is the same without fruit cake and sorrel!
