  • Sieve the flour, i/4 tsp of baking soda, and baking powder and mix well.
  • In a saucepan, combine the dried fruit, sugar, butter, syrup and water and heat slowly on low heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolves.
  • Increase the heat to medium and allow the mixture to come to a boil, reduce the heat and then simmer for 20 minutes on low heat.
  • Remove the sauce pan from the heat, mix in the 1 tsp baking soda and allow to cool.
  • Once the mixture has reached room temperature, add the yogurt, vanilla extract, all spice and mashed potato and beat well with a whisk, until the mixture is smooth.
  • Add the nuts, and carefully fold in the flour, mixing until well combined.

  • Now colorful Egg less Dry Fruits and Nuts Cake is ready. If possible, allow the cake to mature over night or at least for 4 to 5 hours before slicing it up.
