Yule Kaka (Christmas Cake) is a tradition in our house. Yule kaka is a sweet, buttery, cardamom-flavoured fruit bread that is eaten with jam and cream. I was delighted to find that cashew butter and flour have just the right sort of fat and flavor to be a perfect substitute for wheat flour in this recipe. Personally I find it especially delicious with raspberry or rose-hip jam. The slight tartness that they add to this treat is just the thing. This year I tried it with goji berries, dried cherries and pistachio nuts. But I think it would be much better without the pistachios and with raisins as well.
