A healthy Christmas cake is all that the body and soul need.

While growing up, baking a healthy cake was out of the question. However, with time things have changed. Our perceptions of enjoying a delicious meal have also transformed. Now, just being delicious isn’t enough, it has to be healthy too. There has been a shift in trend in the last decade.

On my quest to find a healthy fruit cake recipe adorning my dining table, I came across this delicious recipe five years ago. And since then, my family has been hooked to it – especially my little ones.

Now, it’s here for you. Let’s celebrate happiness together. 


  • 500 gm Dried fruits: figs; dates; apricots; sultanas; currants; cranberries (Your choice! Just ensure to chop big fruits into small pieces.)

  • 125 gms Almond meal

  • 67 grams coconut flour

  • 75 grams mix of Walnuts, pecans, pistachios 

  • An orange

  • 5 Eggs

  • Butter or coconut oil

  • Mixed spice

  • 1 tsp Cinnamon

  • Soak the fruits with some hot water so that they soften

  • Preheat your oven to 150 C. 

  • Mix almond flour, coconut flour, bicarb, salt, mixed spice, lemon zest and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Add the nuts too.
