Holiday Cake / Helligdagskake

Since our National Day is only four days away here in Norway

(The New Kitchen Library) published in 1971

Many may  certainly find names like plum cake and plum pudding somewhat puzzling. And with good reason. The names are in fact misleading, It is not plums, but raisins and currants that gives these dishes their characterizing flavor.

Traditional Rich Fruit Cake / Tradisjonell Saftig Fruktkake

A classic fruitcake recipe found on about.com/food/
Traditional Rich Fruit Cake_britishfood.about_post

The success of this deliciously rich, moist cake lies in soaking the dried mixed fruits in strong dark tea the evening before; the tea adds a subtle depth of flavor to the cake. For this reason you will need a little advance planning to allow time to soak the fruits. It is worth it though so don’t be put off.

1872 fruitcake from The Ruby in the Smoke by Philip Pullman_post

Lunch, in their Bohemian household, consisted of a jug of ale, the remains of a large joint of roast beef, a fruit cake and a bag of apples, which Rosa said she had been given the night before by one of her admirers, a porter in Covent Garden market. They ate it, with the help of one large pocket knife and their fingers.

This fruitcake is durable. The cake can be eaten freshly made, but tastes almost better after a few days. Store the cake in refrigerator, preferably in tight box.

Canadian Apple Fruit Cake_post

Recipe cards like this one was the big craze in the sixties and seventies and most homes had at least one set gathering dust in a plastic box on the kichen counter. We had one, but I remember my mom rather quickly going back to her more traditional cook books – Ted
