Fruit and Nut Cake
Hello fellow bakers 🙂

How about a Fruit and nut cake recipe today!!

Having baked enough of chocolate inspired cakes lately, I made this awesome fruity treat for my family over the weekend. It’s got loads of nuts and fruits baked in a vanilla sponge cake.

This is a self inspired recipe created after salivating over a tin of Delmonte Fruit Cocktail!
