Christmas Rum cake!

1 cup chopped dry fruits ( I have used Raisins, Dates,Almonds, cashews, Ginger,  Orange peel)
1/4 cup dark rum
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg powder
1/4 teaspoon clove powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder

Soak all the above ingredients in rum  for at least 24 hours. Stir them once in a while. Use a large jar, because the fruits more than double in size.

When you are set to bake your rum cake, get the following ingredients together.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tbsps milk 

Butter your bake pan pan and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the egg. Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt,  mix this into butter and sugar mix, alternate with milk and do it in 2-3 batches. 
Drain the rum from the fruits, roll the fruits in some flour to prevent sinking. Add to the batter.

Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then sprinkle with 2 tablespoons rum. Else the cake is rum-doused enough!! Enjoy :)
