Servings 8


  • 1 cup Slurrp Farm Vanilla Cake Mix
  • 30 ml Butter
  • 50 ml Yogurt
  • 60 ml Warm water
  • ½ cup Mixed dry fruits
  • ½ cup Cashew nuts (Chopped)
  • ¼ cup Black raisins
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon powder
  • ¼ tsp Clove powder
  • A pinch of Salt


  • The recipe is divided into three parts: Caramelising the sugar, batter preparation, and baking. Caramelising the sugar is the first part. It is a key step as it gives the cake a special flavor that makes plum cakes stand out. Make sure you caramelize it at low heat, to avoid burning the sugar The second step is making the batter. Batter preparation was made easy and mess-free by the Slurrp Farm cake mix that I used. Use your favorite dry fruits to make them taste the way you like. You can use cherries, plum, dates, and even orange peels. The third step, baking, is a trial and error method. The duration of baking and temperature depends on the oven you use. The temperature mentioned in our post is suitable for microwave or conventional oven.
