Inventive Plum Cakes for Christmas

It is Christmas time, time to eat Plum Cakes. A wide array of Plum Cakes are on the market, and we got to taste a few of them at office today. The best among them was the cake sent by Rakesh (Intellepedia’s Administrator). Once it was safely in my stomach, I couldn’t help telling Rakesh that his cake did not have any plums. It had raisins and prunes, but no plums.

Most Plum Cakes in fact do not have plums, and the term is generally used to refer to Christmas cakes of different varieties. The term got associated with Christmas from the tradition of consuming Plum Porridge. Porridge later became pudding, which later became cake. Though plums went out of the cake, the name stayed.
