Kerala Fruitcake (Plum Cake)

This fruitcake is a classic Christmas recipe in my house. When I was younger, I’d help my mom mix giant bowls of this batter so we could make enough loaves to send to just about all of our family members. For my mom, she found so much joy and pride in making this cake – it’s like she was sharing more than a piece of cake…she was sharing a piece of her memories with everyone around her.
