About the Dish

Mixed Fruit Cake is a Goan delicacy, that is popular worldwide and contains candied nuts and fruits. It’s traditionally popular during Christian festivals like Christmas, but is popular on non-festive days as well. Fruit cake’s earliest recipe is from ancient Rome containing pomegranate seeds, pine nuts, and raisins, but as time went on, the recipe underwent changes according to people’s taste. It has it’s cultural variations internationally and also has a boozy version, Rum cake. Our chef uses her traditional recipe, which makes this sweet treat authentic and yummy.

How to Eat

The best way to eat it is by itself, that is, without any accompaniments. The dish can be eaten at room temperature and can be stored for a few days. It has a soft texture but is very heavy and can be consumed as an evening snack at tea party or as a dessert after a meal.
