How to make the recipe?
  1. Preheat oven at 180°C for ten minutes before baking. Grease 2 squared Or rectangular shaped pan with oil place a parchment
  2. paper at the bottom. Sift flour, salt, baking powder, cornflour and all the spices powder mentioned above. Keep them aside.
  3. Peel oranges and make their juice in a juicer Or grinder. Strain the juice and collect the juice in a wide mouthed pan.
  4. Place the orange juice on low heat for 2 mins then add all sugar. Give a nice stir. It's time to add all chopped Or crushed dry fruit and nuts reserve some hazelnuts for later. Also mix orange peels, tutti fruity, sugar and oil.
  5. Simmer for another 5 to 7 mins on medium heat. Keep stirring you will see after some time the nuts will absorb the juice and the mixture starts reducing. Switch off the gas allow the mixture to cool down.
  6. Fold sifted flour gradually into batches of three.
  7. Mix baking soda with water. Add this mixture into cake batter and fold gently. Pour the batter into the greased detachable pans. Top the cake with the reserved hazelnuts.
  8. Bake both pans at 180°C for the first ten mins then reduce the temperature to 160°C and bake for another 30 mins Or until the skewer comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool in the pan. Once cools down gently umould and remove the baking paper.

Notes
If the cake is browning you could cover the cake with foil.
If you like butter use it in replacement of oil.
Also you could your own choice of dry fruits.
If you love liquor use rum instead of juice.
I have tried rum cake with eggs and without eggs both taste great.
Have used spice powder you could use all spice powder Or spices you love for this cake.
Nuts are optional add them if you have or just skip it.
If you feel the cake batter is too dry add little water if required.
