Sift together the flour, baking powder, soda bicarbonate, cinnamon and nutmeg, 2-3 times. Mix 1 tbsp. of flour into the chopped fruit to coat the fruit.
Step 2
Soften the butter in a pan; mix in MILKMAID. Fold in the sifted flour with the MILKMAID-butter mixture, alternating with water and caramel syrup till all are used. Add the chopped dry fruits, rose and almond essence and fold into the mix carefully.
Step 3
Pour the batter into the greased cake tin and bake for an hour at 180* C or till the cake is done. Remove from the oven, cool for a while. Loosen sides of the cake and turnout onto a plate. Cool slightly before cutting into pieces.
