The History and Taste of Fruit Cakes

Did you know that apples were often used as a natural sweetener in the Middle Ages? Before sugar became widely available, dried and fresh fruit were one of the main ways to add sweetness to dishes.

For centuries, fruit has been one of the most important ingredients in kitchens around the world, emphasizing the taste of desserts and enriching them with their natural sweet flavor. The history of fruit cakes begins in ancient times, when the inhabitants of the Mediterranean used dried fruits to enrich bread and other baked goods. In medieval Europe, thanks to the development of trade routes, fruit cakes began to gain in popularity and the availability of various fruits became greater.

Fruit cakes are a favorite choice all over the world, regardless of the occasion. They are the basis of many traditional Christmas feasts, examples of baked goods include: Christmas mince pie in England or tart tatin in France. In many cultures, fruit cakes had symbolic meaning. For example, in Poland, the traditional apple pie was a symbol of abundance and prosperity, and cakes such as cheesecake or apple pie have dominated family tables for years.
