  • ½ cup candied cherry
  • 1/3 cup raisins


Preheat the oven to 180C.

In a bowl mix two eggs with sugar. Whisk for 5 minutes. Then add melted butter, baking powder and vanilla extract and whisk for 2 minutes. Now, add flour to the mixture in two steps. Keep stirring. Add milk and mix. Now you have a smooth batter. Finally add candied fruits and raisins. Mix all together.

Grease the baking pan with oil and line it with parchment paper. Spoon the mixture into the pan. Put the pan into the oven and bake for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.

When cake is done , remove from the oven and let to cool in the pan.
