Plum cakes are also known as Fruit cake or Christmas cake. The traditional plum cake has alcohol content in it. Rum or Brandy is used in it and it is a very lengthy process to bake this cake. I modified the traditional cake recipe into an easy and non-alcohol cake recipe. It tastes exactly or more tastier than the traditional one.
