It’s already DECEMBER!!!

Wow! Time flies when you’re having fun. Since December is National Fruit Cake Month, I thought this would be the perfect time to re-share my Veganified version of Aunt Dot’s Fruit Cake.

Plus, just for giggles, I wanted to share this short news segment about the history of the Fruit Cake. I actually had no idea there was an annual Fruit Cake toss, did you?! I know you’re just going to love this version of Fruit Cake and it won’t toss it anywhere except near your mouth.

Holiday Fruit Cake

Note:  This is where the importance of Mis-en-place is hand in very handy.  Prep each of the grouped ingredients separately so that when you finish with your mis-en-place, you have all your ingredients staged in 4 bowls.  Once you finish that process, the mixing will be rather easy (and you will have a neat and clean kitchen workspace).

About Linda Voorhis

I’ve always had a love for cooking and read cookbooks and cooking magazines the way other people read books. They inspire me to create my own recipes and have taught me the ‘science’ of cooking, most especially baking.

Julia Child (definitely nothing veg about her, but probably the greatest skills technician) and my maternal Italian grandmother, Mary, were my first mentors. With the advent of the celebrity chef and abundance of television cooking shows, inspiration continued to be placed before me. Food, its preparation with love, and the creativity it sparks within me, became a passion of mine.
