When i was young , my mom loved to bake fruit cake . No , it’s not the kind of fruit cake that americans know , it’s not those kind of fruit cake where you can let it sit for weeks .. not that kind . To me , this is more like butter cake with raisins and fruit glazed . But my sister still called it fruit cake . Mom used to bake this with her mini oven , not oven with stove like i have right now , but back then , my mom didn’t even have that big oven , it was the kind of oven that has cord plugged into the outlet , and it has the lid where you can take it on and off . It’s a very old style one ..
Anyway , this christmas , i miss that fruit cake , so i asked my sister for the recipe , she gave it to me and i am trying it right now . The smell reminds me of my mom when she was busy making this cake !! I really wish she’s here , she would have been so amazed with all this christmas decorations , the snow , the people , the food that we make .. Hopefully this cake turns out good ..
