Christmas Fruit Cake
Recipe type: Dessert
Christmas Fruit Cake is a Peruvian food recipe called Pan de Pasque.
  • 3 c. plus 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp. anise
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. cloves
  • 1½ sticks butter, at room temperature
  • ½ c. packed dark brown sugar
  • ⅓ c. sugar
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 c. mixed candied fruits
  • ½ c. chopped walnuts
  • ½ c. chopped almonds
  • 1 c. raisins
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
  • 2 tsp. powdered sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F. Butter a 9-inch cake pan and line it with two layers of wax paper. Butter the top layer of wax paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine 3 c. flour, baking powder, salt, and spices.
  3. In another large bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add 4 eggs, one at a time, and beat after each addition.
  4. Use a wooden spoon to add a small amount of the flour mixture to the sugar mixture. Stir to combine.
  5. Now add a small amount of the milk and stir to combine. Continue adding batches of the flour mixture and milk to make a smooth, thick batter. Stir vigorously a few times to lighten the batter.
  6. Place the candied fruits, nuts, raisins, and orange zest in a small bowl and sprinkle with the remaining 2 tbsp. flour. Shake to coat, and stir the fruits and nuts into the batter.
  7. Pour the batter into the cake pan. Bake for 45 minutes.
  8. Remove the cake from the oven. In a small bowl, beat the remaining egg with a fork. Use a pastry brush to apply the beaten egg to the top of the cake and dust with powdered sugar.
  9. Return the cake to the oven and bake for 2 more hours, or until a knife inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. If the cake starts to brown too quickly, cover it with foil.
  10. Cool the cake in the pan, then turn it out onto a plate. Remove the wax paper. Store cake in a paper bag in the refrigerator for one day before slicing. The cake will keep for two to three weeks if stored in the refrigerator.
