Christmas Fruit Cake Recipe

Nothing screams Christmas like the good old fresh fruit cake which is the iconic dessert we spot in almost every house during Christmas. Ever wondered how fresh fruit cake came into existence? It is believed that the Romans were the ones who first invented the traditional fresh fruit cake as a sort of energy bar to sustain their soldiers during the war.

 The mind-boggling shelf life of the fruit cake proves this theory right. The Romans called their fruit cake ‘satura’ and it was made using pine nuts, mashed barley, pomegranate seeds, raisins, honey, and wine.
