 This Multi Millet Eggless Plum Cake Recipe is a boozy, dark, intense cake that is made in advance for Christmas. The nuts and dry fruits are steeped in the rum and the cake is additionally loaded with nuts making it a wholesome cake full of bite. Every home has a way of making a Christmas Cake and over time, I have adapted the recipe to the taste and flavours which we love at home. 

This Plum cake is a recipe I have been following for years and is now a foolproof recipe that I turn to every Christmas. For best results, make it in advance and store it in a dark cool place for the flavours to deepen.
