PLUM CAKE is very close to the heart of each and every ‘Malayali’ particularly on the occasion of Christmas and New Year. It is not clear how it came to be called the plum cake. Some believe that raisins that are also referred to as plums in England gave this beautiful name! What makes it so special is the presence of almost all famous spices of the state – Cardamom, Cinnamon, Clove, Fennel, Cumin, Nutmeg and Cashew nuts. In Hot Cakes, we choose fine quality green and golden fleshy raisins (imported as well as domestic) with mixed taste of sweet & sour – each lot selected individually , wheat flour, candied fruits, ginger and orange peel, ghee, sunflower oil, egg, sugar and honey.
Fruits are handpicked, washed, dehydrated and then stewed in a traditional varp (large bell metal stewing vessel), caramelized under the supervision of a master, and then spices added in right proportion, soaked in wine and then kept for ageing. Plum cake making has two processes, firstly fruits are prepared and aged; then mixing, dividing, baking, packing, preserving until it reaches the taste buds…
The making of the cake is not a secret, it’s known to every artisan and videos are plenty in YouTube. Then how come most of the plum cakes in the market are just ordinary and very few cake makers stand out in taste, smoothness, richness, moisture and aroma…
The secret is absolute Care, Precision, Attention, Dedication – all undivided.
