Nigerian Christmas Fruit Cake

This Recipe is a reload of the Cake I made a year ago and a seasonal Cranberry Glaze. The Nigerian Christmas Cake is definitely very much influenced by the large number of cultures that have influence Nigerian cuisine over the past centuries. Perfect for Christmas and any family gathering this cake can always be spice up by adding hot chocolate and or any glaze you have on hand.

The cake largely reminds me of Italian Panetone as its actually more of a bread than cake. When it comes to the filling this time around, I chose to use only raisins this time around which I soaked in warm water for half a day.
