Most fruitcake recipes are prepared with candied or dried fruit, nuts, and various spices.
Fruitcake is very popular all over the world. There are a lot of fruitcake versions with or without icing.
In some countries like Canada fruitcake is prepared just during the Christmas season or for weddings, while in other countries such as Australia it’s served all throughout the year.
This old-fashioned cherry cake recipe is based on a traditional bundt cake recipe, often used both by my grandma and mum.
The homemade cake is very tasty and flavor-rich – the fluffy cake core with vanilla flavor is combined with the savory cherry or sour cherry taste, while the aristocratic chocolate aroma brings the cake to the next level!
The homemade cake recipe requires pretty few ingredients and just basic baking skills, so anybody can prepare it with great results in a short time.
As a result, you can serve it at breakfast, in the afternoon, or any time you want to relish fantastic sweet flavors!
Enjoy the traditional cake with fruit and chocolate!
