12 portions
  • 3/4 cups rum
  • 1 cup dehydrated apricot
  • 1 cup dried apple
  • 3/4 cups raisin
  • 1/2 tablespoons Orange zest
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tablespoons cardamom, ground
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 pinch whole clove, ground
  • 2/3 cups brown sugar
  • 1/3 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 tablespoons liquid vanilla
  • 1/4 tablespoons salt


Place the rum and the dehydrated fruit in a pot, add the orange zest and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Remove and refrigerate for at least 24 hours before starting the recipe. Before making the cake remove the fruit from the refrigerator so that it is at room temperature.
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and place the grid in the center.
Prepare two molds to make bread with butter. Place two strips of waxed paper in the mold, this will help you remove the cake from the mold at the end.
In a bowl with a balloon whisk, beat the flour with all the spices.
In an electric mixer beat brown sugar and refined sugar with butter until fluffy. Add the eggs and continue beating. Add the vanilla and salt and beat once more.
Add the flour little by little and beat until everything is incorporated.
Place the dough in a bowl, add the fruit and with a spatula mix the fruit with the dough.
Pour the dough into the molds and bake for 15 minutes. Then lower the temperature to 150 degrees Celsius and bake for an hour and a half or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool on a rack for 30 minutes.

Queda mejor con fruta cristalizada, como piña, higo, durazno, biznaga o acitrón y chabacano deshidratado... hagan la prueba. Los demás ingredientes son buenos...

Me animé a hacer la receta pues se ve muy sencilla y rica pero.... Ohhh sorpresa, segui cada paso al pie de la letra sin cambiar absolutamente nada y me llevé la peor sorpresa de mi vida: El Tiempo de Horneado está TOTALMENTE EQUIVOCADO lo único que logré fue sacar un pastel totalmente negro: quemado. Sugerencia: modifiquen el tiempo de horneado
