Mixed Fruits, Cream Cheese Buttercake

I came across this recipe from Yochana's Blog and decided to give it a try. I adapted it and the result was a less oily, moist and soft cake. This was what I did ....


125 g butter
125 g cream cheese
185 g caster sugar
3 nos. eggs, slightly beaten
200 g cake flour sieved together with 1 tsp of baking powder

150 g mixed fruits of cranberries, golden raisins, orange peel, ginger peel soaked overnight in Irish Cream Bailey's

50 g chopped walnuts


Cream together butter, cream cheese and sugar till creamy.

Add in the eggs, one at a time together with a little of the sifted flour and baking powder.

Mix 2 tbsp of the flour into the Bailey's soaked fruits to prevent them from sinking in the cake batter during baking.

Fold in the rest of the flour, together with the fruits and the nuts.

Pour batter into an 8" square cake pan.

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degree C for about 45 minutes. or till the skewer comes out clean of the cake.

Remove from oven and leave cake pan to cool on wire rack.

Cut cake when the cake is cooled or refridgerate cake before cutting.
