5 Delightful Vegan Christmas Cakes

For those who love sweets and dried fruit, add Christmas cakes to your holiday menu. Did you know? The Christmas cake was a merger of two English traditional dishes eaten during this time of year, the plum porridge and the Twelfth Night cake. They are usually variations of a fruit cake, but who says Christmas cake is just reserved for dried fruit? In the U.S., we just call dried fruit in a cake, “fruitcake,” but everyone else in the world calls it “Christmas Cake.” Some soak their cakes in rum, others soak it in brandy. Some serve Christmas cake on Christmas Eve, others serve it on Christmas Day.

Worst product placement I've seen in a while - these intrusive BMW ads on top of vegan recipes. Oh, well, it's funny to see ad money for elitist gas-guzzlers going to Care2.

Worth a try but vegan baking is, honestly, always a difficult thing to pull off.
