  • Preheat the oven to 330 F.
  • Combine all the dry ingredients together (All-purpose flour, Almond Flour, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, Salt, Spices) in a bowl and keep aside.
  • Beat the butter and brown sugar until it is light and fluffy with an electric mixer.
  • Add the eggs one at a time and mix well.
  • Add the soaked fruits along with the orange zest, the vanilla extract and the orange extract. Beat until well incorporated.
  • Add the dry mix set aside with the sugar syrup* and fold gently using a spatula until everything comes together.
  • Transfer the batter into greased and lined cake pans (1 x 8 inch or 2 x 6 inch pans can be used) and decorate the top with dry fruits.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool and brush with alcohol (Optional)

 * Caramelized Sugar Syrup:

Heat 1/2 cup of white granulated sugar with 1/4 cup of water in a hard-bottomed sauce pan until it turns an amber color. Pour in 1/4 cup more of water. It will splutter and hiss and start boiling. Stir with a spatula and until all of the hardened pieces of sugar melt and you have a dark amber, smooth syrup. Take off the heat, transfer to a bowl and let cool.
