  • cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 3 oz Butter approximately 85 gm or ¾ cup
  • ¼ cup Hot milk
  • ½ cup Yogurt
  • ½ tsp Baking powder
  • ½ tsp Cooking soda
  • ½ tsp Vanilla extract
  • cup Rum Soaked Dry Fruits Use Orange or Grape Juice for Non alcoholic version
  • 2 Cardamom
  • 1 inch Cinnamon
  • 1 Clove
  • ½ tsp Nutmeg Powder
  • Salt a pinch


  • In a blender add in brown sugar, Clove, Cardamom, cinnamon powder, Nutmeg powder and blend everything well to form a fine powder.
  • Cream together the ground sugar and soft unsalted butter until well combined, to this add-in hot milk.
  • Next add in Yogurt, Vanilla essence and beat everything together till it combines evenly.
  • Sieve together with the flour, Baking powder, Baking soda, and salt three times. Now in batches slowly fold together the dry ingredient and wet ingredients in batches.
  • Now comes the hero (dry fruits which are soaked in Rum for 6 months). P. S For a non alcoholic version you may soak the dry fruits in grape juice or orange juice Reserve two tbsp. of flour before mixing it with wet ingredients. toss the rum soaked fruits in the flour and then slowly fold the fruits along with the prepared cake batter.
  • Pout the cake mold in the greased and lined cake mold.Preheat the oven at 180 Deg C for about 10 mins and then bake at 180 Deg for about 45-50 mins or until a tooth pick when inserted comes out clean. Once baked allow the cake to cool down after that remove the cake from the Cake pan and then remove the parchment paper from the bottom of the cake that is used for lining and cool for another 6 hours before slicing.


  • If you don’t wish to soak the dry fruits in Rum, you may use Grape juice or orange juice .
  • The more you soak the dry fruits the better the taste.
  • Overnight soaked or 1 week soaking can also be done.
  • Any dry fruits can be used for soaking, I used Raisins blueberry, Black Currants, Tutti Frutti, Cranberry.
  • Allow the cake to cool complexly before slicing.
  • This cake is perfect for Xmas gifting.
