Plum Cake



Whole wheat flour - 2 cups
Jaggery -2 cups 
Curds - 1 cup
Vegetable Oil -3/4 cup
Water- 1/2 cup
Bicarb Soda - 1/2 tsp
Baking Powder - 1/2 tsp
Rum soaked dry fruits (black raisins, almonds, orange peel) - 1 cup
Mix spice powder (cinnamon, cardamom, clove, dry ginger) - 1 tsp


Soak all the dry fruits in Rum/wine/brandy a month in advance to get a good, strong flavour. Before you start preparing the cake, soak the fruits in fresh orange juice.

Mix all dry fruits in a bowl and the soaked ingredients in another bowl and then add jaggery to the bowl containing the soaked ingredients and stir till the jaggery dissolves.

Line 9" round cake tin with butter paper and keep it ready.

Mix together the dry ingredients, spice powder and rum soaked fruits.

Beat this mixture with a blender.

Pour the cake batter in the mold and place it preheated at 170 c oven  for 30 minutes.
