- Sieve the Flour and Baking powder together in a bowl and keep aside
- Separate the Egg whites from the Egg yolks and keep the yolks aside
- In a bowl, beat the Egg whites till a foamy texture appears
- Add the Egg yolks gradually one after the other to the Egg white mixture and beat the mixture
- Add the Castor sugar to the Egg mixture and beat it till the Sugar blends well with the Eggs
- Add Butter to the mixture and beat the whole mixture well
- Slowly add the Flour mixture to the Eggs and mix well with a spatula
- Slowly add the Dry Fruits mixture in the batter and mix well
- Add the Vanilla Essence to the prepared Batter
- Pour the batter in a greased Cake Container (Aluminum/Silicon Mould) and set to bake in the preheated oven
- After the Cake color turns Golden brown, check to see if an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

-          Use this Instant Non Alcoholic version for your pregnant friends (their sudden cravings) and the Teetotaler!
-          Traditional recipes mostly use Caramelized Sugar to get the desired color
-          Few secret recipes also use Orange Juice towards the end
