Easy Christmas boiled fruit cake | Kukskitchen



Easy Christmas boiled fruit cake  | Kukskitchen

A traditional fruit cake is what I usually make for Christmas. However, this calls for soaking dried fruits in Rum for a good few weeks at least, for a dense flavour. Now, last year my dear friend S found this recipe on Joy of baking website and we both fell in love with this straight away. It not only does not require the long process of soaking, and the result is equally good. For longevity, this non-alcoholic cake can be soaked in brandy for 3 days and result is super awesome. The cake turns extra moist and it stays moist for as long as it can stay in your food cupboard.

This cake got such gorgeous reviews at my hubby's work place that I had to make them a second time between Christmas and New Year. Also our dear friends devoured this cake and my friend who is a super talented cook, who hates sweet things, took second serving, which I consider a great honour.

This cake is best for the last minute baker perfect for a Bachelor especially since this cake does not require a cake mixer.

Orange Chicken | Kukskitchen




I present to you my guest post in my dear friend Rafeeda's blog called The Big Sweet Tooth.She is one friend I got from the blogosphere. Rafs as she calls herself, is such an enthusiastic blogger and one can only admire the energy that spills out on each and every blog post she makes or even facebook messages. I was so pleased to be able to do a guest post for her. I was on vacation myself and was so pleased with how it turned out.


Please do not borrow pictures without my permission. I may not find out but there is someone up there watching, and stealing doesnot go well in his court.

 I'm Sherin, aka kukku. 

A happy wife, an excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My husband is my pillar of support and my son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
