The Christmas festival is incomplete without a rich spicy cake.Traditionally the cake is made with dry fruits and then soaked in alcohol like whisky or brandy.In India most commonly rum is used.This is a different cake where I have used chocolate.One can prepare and serve this cake during any festivals or get together to make  friends and family members happy.
