Hi Friends,
This is my first Christmas recipe of this season. You know i was craving to bake something and after a very long time i baked a cake yesterday which came out so soft and airy. everybody enjoyed it a lot. Its not a regular Christmas spice cake. Its bit different. 
I made few changes in the recipe by exchanging ingredients. Actuly i saw my mother regretting not making ghee ke ladoo for kids as its very healthy to feed kids with different kind of ladoos like gram flour/rice flour/edible gum ladoos etc made with ghee. So i thought why not use ghee instead of butter or vegetable oil. So i used ghee.Second thing i used whole wheat flour instead of plain flour or mixing few kind of flour. You can see the result in the pictures. Everybody gobbled it in minutes. Everybody said that sugar is just perfect as it was not too sweet and walnuts were giving a great crunch to it. Overall cake was nice spongy airy less sweet with the crunch of tutti fruity and walnuts. So try this cake this Christmas and let me know the outcome.

But it was delicious

A Slice for you

  1. You can use normal vegetable oil/olive oil or butter. I wanted to make it bit healthy for kids so added ghee.
  2. You can make it without chocolate also then the color & taste of the cake would be different. Increase sugar if you skip chocolate.
  3. You can use any of your favorite jam in it but pineapple and chocolate combo is irresistible.
  4. Don't melt wet ingredient on direct heat, use method given in the recipe (double boiling).
  5. You can add tutti fruity, walnuts or any of your favorite  your nuts, dry fruits. dried fruits etc in the batter itself.
  6. You can use hot water or hot milk to adjust the consistency. 
Hope you will like it
