Wheat flour-2 cups
baking powder-1 tsp
baking soda-1/2 tsp
sugar-1 cup
coconut milk-1 cup
olive oil-1/2 cup
rum soaked dry fruits n nuts-1 cup or 200 grams
sesame seeds-100 grams (1/2 cup) I used white sesame

You can use any I used,
Cashews,walnuts,almonds,raisins,dried apricots,tutti frutti,brasil nuts,black raisins,dried chopped figs.

If you want without alcohol take fruits in bowl and add 1/2 cup fresh orange juice.Rest it for 1 day minimum and use in cake...


In a mixing bowl break eggs,add in oil,sugar...Mix well until sugar dissolves..

Add in flour,baking powder,soda and mix until it combines...

Now throw in dry fruits+nuts,sesame seeds and mix well..

Now preheat oven at 200 degree C.. Take cake tin or glass bowl and grease butter or oil completely..Then dust flour in all sides and pour cake batter...

Place in oven and bake for 40 minutes..check with tooth pick.It should come out clean ,or if it is sticky,bake for 10 more minutes and turn off..

Let it cool and slice..Serve with milk..If you like,on top the cake suing tooth pick put some wholes and pour rum with spoon..(may be 1 tbsp) it`s optional.


Here I used,wheat flour.If you use all purpose flour,you need to add 1/4 cup more flour may be..

Cake batter should be in medium texture..not too thin or too thick..after mixing every thing,you can check it,it needs some technique,which you get slowly when  baking often...

Measurements are perfect and clear.oven time may be different for each,keep an eye on cake..check after 30 minutes exactly, n check for each 10 minutes..

Dusting cake tin/glass bowl with flour is important for a perfect shaped cake...

If the orange juice(which you use to soak dry fruits n nuts) is thick and sweet in taste,adjust the sugar can brown sugar also.
