1 cup mixed dry fruits (such as raisins, chopped dates, chopped figs, chopped apricots, chopped prunes)

1/2 cup chopped nuts (such as almonds, walnuts, cashews, pistachios)

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk or buttermilk

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)

A pinch of nutmeg (optional)


Preheat and Prepare: | How to make Dry Fruit Cake

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a round cake pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.

Prepare the Dry Fruits:

Chop the mixed dry fruits and nuts into small pieces. Toss them with a little flour to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the cake while baking. Set them aside.

Creaming Butter and Sugar: | How to make Dry Fruit Cake

In a mixing bowl, cream the softened butter and granulated sugar together until light and fluffy. This can be done with a hand mixer or a stand mixer.

Adding Eggs and Vanilla: | How to make Dry Fruit Cake

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Then, mix in the vanilla extract.

Mixing Dry Ingredients:

In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ground cinnamon, and nutmeg (if using).

Combining Wet and Dry Ingredients:

Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the butter and sugar mixture, alternating with the milk or buttermilk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

Incorporating Dry Fruits and Nuts:

Gently fold in the chopped dry fruits and nuts into the batter. Make sure they are evenly distributed.

Baking the Cake:

Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Tap the pan gently on the counter to remove any air bubbles.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Cooling and Serving:

Once the cake is done baking, remove it from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10-15 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Optional Glaze or Frosting: | How to make Dry Fruit Cake

If desired, you can drizzle the cooled cake with a simple glaze made from powdered sugar and a little milk, or frost it with your favorite cream cheese frosting for an extra layer of flavor.

Slice and Enjoy:

Once the cake is completely cooled and any glaze or frosting has set, slice it into portions and serve. This Dry Fruit Cake is perfect for tea time, celebrations, or as a sweet treat any time of the day.
