This is an easy recipe if the ingredients are available readily. Rich with fruits & nuts with some nice boost to celebrate the Christmas season. You can keep this cake for about 3-4 weeks and can prepare ahead of time so you can store it while brushing with brandy to hold the moist in the cake & to make it even richer in tastier.

***In this video I am soaking fruits for 7 days. It is better to soak them for about 2 weeks. More you soak more flavor you get. If you are making this cake in a hurry you can soak them for 24hours least.
***You can make this cake ahead of time and store it in a cool dry place, in a air tight container. Soak the cake with brandy or rum every 4-5 days.
