Directions:

  • Soak dry fruits in orange juice overnight. I left in outside at room temperature.
  • Before making the cake next day, drain the juice completely, reserve 3 tbsp for later (or can use fresh orange juice too). Add 1/4 cup flour to the fruit and coat it well.
  • Add chopped nuts to it and keep aside. In a mixing bowl, add remaining 1 cup flour, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder, salt.
  • Mix well with whisk. Sieve it to ensure even mixing, keep aside.
  • In another bowl, beat butter smoothly. Add sugar and beat until creamy.
  • Add yogurt, orange juice and beat well until creamy.
  • Add sieved flour little by little at a time (in 3-4 parts) and fold (mix with spatula gently) it until mixed.
  • Lastly add dry fruits and nuts with orange zest.
  • Fold it to mix. Pour in a greased, dusted pan.
  • Bake in oven preheated at 180 deg C, for 40 –45 mins or until toothpick inserted inside comes out clean. After 10 mins, invert over wire rack to cool.
