What is a Christmas Cake?

Christmas cake is a custom that originated in England as plum porridge. On Christmas Eve, many ate porridge to fill their tummies after a day of fasting. The porridge combination soon contained dried fruit, spices, and honey, and it eventually transformed into Christmas pudding.

Fruit cake is frequently offered throughout the holiday season in the US, but it is not regarded as a traditional Christmas cake.

Oatmeal was eliminated from the original recipe in the sixteenth century and replaced with butter, wheat flour, and eggs. These components contributed to the cohesiveness of the mixture and the creation of the boiled plum cake. For Easter, wealthier families with ovens started baking fruit cakes with marzipan, an almond sugar paste. They created a similar cake for Christmas using fresh herbs and seasonal dried berries. The spices stood in for the rare eastern spices that the Wise Men brought. The term “Christmas cake” was coined for this cake.
