There are many variations of fruit cake, including a version that require soaking of the fruit for days while another one need you to boil the dry fruits and butter.
Am sharing with you a really quick and easy Dry Fruit Bundt Cake and one of the ingredients was condensed milk. Using condensed milk in a fruit cake is a new one for me but it always fun to try. Dry Fruit Bundt Cake is also made without sugar.
If you need to avoid egg, you can substitute with plain yogurt or pureed fruit.
I find it easier to slice without it breaking so easily because the fruits remain soft and stick together. You can easily increase the mixed fruit up to 1 cup if desired.
