Add in these tutti frutti to the cake mixture and mix lightly witha spatula.
Preheat oven at 180 degree C for 10 minutes.
Transfer the cake mixture to the prepared lined cake tin. Tap the tin 2-3 times on the table to remove any air bubbles.
Bake it at 170 degree Centigrade for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted to the middle of the cake comes out clean.
Keep the cake on the tin for 15 minutes to cool down and then dust with some icing sugar.
Demould the cake and cut in thin pieces. Serve with tea or coffee.
You can store the cake in the refrigerator for a week or can consume witin 2-3 days if stored in a airtight container.
