Eggless Christmas Cake – No Alcohol Fruit Cake

December 16, 2015 Cakes/MuffinsChristmas Recipes  34 comments

Yay!! I made Christmas Cake successfully!! Making this Christmas Fruit Cake was a long time dream for me!! I feel as if I have finished Ph.D in baking!!  I love fruit cake, the aroma, the sweetness and slightly tangy taste from the dry fruits just drives me crazy. I never thought it would be so easy to make this Christmas cake. Traditionally the dry fruits are soaked in alcohol for many days and then the cake is made. This is a NO-ALCOHOL recipe. Moreover, it is eggless too. I saw this recipe in joy of baking and tweaked it a bit according to our taste buds.

I am really very happy to share this No-Alcohol, eggless fruit cake. Post updated with video 🙂

Here is the video..



Now to the recipe…

Eggless Christmas Cake My Magic Pan



  1. Boiling the dry fruits along with the spice powders and other ingredients gives a magical aroma. Make sure u boil on a low flame only for 5 mins.
  2. I have used curd in place of eggs. If u want u can skip it and add 2 eggs.
  3. I have used raisins and cranberries, u can use candied mixed peel too.
  4. Using nuts is purely optional, u can skip if u dont want.
  5. I would insist to use brown sugar for this Christmas Cake.

  • Jay  says:

    This is a fool proof recipe. I baked it once – the first time ever the cake came out of the pan without much effort. Thanks to you. I felt accomplished. Baking it now for the second time. Have a toddler at home and this has become her favourite snack. I reduce sugar a bit and add dried fruits for natural sweetness. I dont have all purpose now at home. Going to try with whole wheat flour. Hope it turns out okay!

    • Sundari Nathan  says:

      Thank u so much for your elaborate comment!! It should work well with wheat flour too!!

  • Ashya  says:

    Hi can i know what pan size to use?

    • Sundari Nathan  says:

      My pan’s size is 8×3 inches, which was quite big. U can may be use a smaller one – 8×2 inches.. Hope this helps!

  • Steph  says:

    Is the curd, a jam type curd, ie Lemon curd?

    • Sundari Nathan  says:

      No ordinary plain curd/yogurt..

  • Mary Joseph  says:

    Question? How long this cake can last?

    • Mary Joseph  says:

      Can I post it overseas?

    • Sundari Nathan  says:

      This cake will stay good for 4-5 days in room temperature(below 15 deg C) I live in a cold region in U.K.. Not sure about it’s shelf life during travel..

  • Yagaes  says:

    Cake was dense and didn’t rise up after following almost all the steps..

    • Sundari Nathan  says:

      Pls check the expiry date of your baking soda or use a different one next time. That could be the only possibility I guess!

  • Shweta Agrawal  says:

    Can I replace brown sugar with normal sugar
    I don’t like brown sugar taste
