Chocolate Fruit Cake Recipe

This is my first post on baking. I do baking once in a while and this is one such recipe which we both like. This cake recipe is very simple to make as it don’t need much of mixing. Other thing which I liked about this recipe is, it doesn’t require butter too. Yeah!!! Its No Butter Chocolate Cake with mixed fruits Smile. Though it doesn’t have any butter, the cake will still turn out moist and spongy. To add on taste to the cake, I added mixed dried fruits. This cake can also be prepared without mixed fruit.

Transfer the mixture to the cake tin and level them. Preheat the oven to 180o celcius. Place the cake tin inside the oven. Bake for 30 – 35 minutes. If the cake is baked well, if you insert a tooth pick, the mixture will not stick to the toothpick. Turn off the oven and remove the cake tin and leave it for few minutes at room temperature. Transfer the cake to a cooling rack and allow it to cool down. Then cut them into pieces of required shape.
