Vegan Fruitcake? No, I am not a closet fruitcake fan. But, since it is Christmas time, tis the season to eat questionable food! This vegan fruitcake recipe was requested by @Tofu3000 on twitter, so I will try to make a delicious vegan fruitcake, if that is even possible, let’s see how this goes.

Vegan Fruitcake Recipe – Vegan Christmas Holiday Recipes
Adapted from Nom Nom Nom Vegan Fruitcake Delight
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup agave nectar
2 tablespoons raw sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons applesauce
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup dried fruit (variety of colors and flavors)
1/3 cup triple sec
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and lightly spray a loaf pan with baking spray.
In a large bowl, sift together all purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
In a separate bowl, whisk together orange juice, agave nectar, apple sauce, vegetable oil, raw sugar, and vanilla extract.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well.
Fold in pecans and dried fruit, then spread the vegan fruit cake batter evenly throughout the loaf pan.
Bake for 45 – 50 minutes until a toothpick comes out of the center clean.
While cake is still in pan, sit it on a cooling rack. Use a toothpick to poke holes in it.
Slowly pour triple sec over the cake and allow to cool for 20 minutes before removing it from the pan.
My vegan fruitcake turned out delicious. It is absolutely the best fruitcake I have ever tasted.
