The traditional fruit cake you once enjoyed has been transformed with new options and a variety of new flavors. For anyone considering all of their options in fruit and nut cakes, remember just how amazing this combination can be. Many times, these cakes are given as gifts as a housewarming gift, for example. They are often shared at the holidays. However, they work all year long to provide a tasty treat for anyone who loves a unique combination of fruit, nuts, and spices. The question is, which variety is right for your needs?
Going with the Traditional Versions
Fruit and nut cakes can be very traditional offering cherries and other basic fruits with a mixture of walnuts. However, other options exist. It is possible to choose those with a range of nuts – including walnuts, almonds, and pecans. For the nut lover, finding one offering, all three options are an excellent choice. Another option is to consider a larger variety of fruit. Items like cherries and pineapple are common. However, others offer apples or other fruits in them. You can find these cakes made with something for just about every fruit flavor you enjoy.
You also will want to consider a few ways to make them special. Some offer alcohol in them (rum fruit cakes are very popular and traditional). However, not all do. Some also add layers of decadence on them with additional toppings. Think about one with chocolate, for example, for added luxuriousness.
When choosing fruit and nut cakes make your decision a special one. Take the time to consider those cakes designed with ample flavors and exceptional texture. With so many varieties and options to choose from, it is possible to have a different cake at each event you hold this year, in fact.
