Tutty Fruity cake

tutty fruity cake I have always loved cakes and breads containing tutty fruity when I was young. It felt so good nibbling into each of these candied fruits. Now when my baking skills have improved upto some extent and now a serious passion too, I have been looking out for different recipes for cakes, cookies and breads and often spend maximum amount of my time at the baking section of the super market. That is when I found a packet of tutty fruity as its called in India and I bought it immediately. I wanted to try the cakes I had eaten with relish when young. So since then I have been using them in my goodies and made my favourite cake with it.
This cake with tutty fruity was so soft and spongy and tasted just wonderful.

Ingredients-
Self raising flour- 1 cup
Eggs-3
Canola oil- 1cup
Milk- 1cup
Granulated sugar- 1 cup
Tutty fruity- 1/2 cup
Dried apricots- 1/2 cup(cut into small pieces)
Yellow colour- a pinch

Method-
Beat the eggs well. Add the sugar and mix well till a smooth mixture is obtained. Mix in the flour. Add the oil and mix well. Mix the yellow colour in milk. Add it to the mixture. Fold in the tutty fruity and apricots. Mix and pour the batter in a greased cake tin. Bake in a preheated oven at 180c for 35 minutes. Check with a knife or skewer if done.
Cool and slice into pieces.
