Step 1

Preheat oven at 180ºC. Grease the base and sides of a deep 8” (20 cm) round cake tin with the melted butter. Line the base with greaseproof paper.

Step 2

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and ¼ tsp baking soda, mix well and sift once to make the mixture uniform.

In a medium sized non-stick saucepan, combine the dried fruit, brown sugar, butter, syrup and 1 cup water and heat slowly on low heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Increase to medium heat and allow the mixture to come to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes on low heat. Remove the sauce pan from the heat, mix in the remaining baking soda and allow it to cool.

Step 4

Once the mixture has reached to room temperature, stir in the yogurt, vanilla essence, all spice, orange zest and mashed potato and beat well with a whisk, until the mixture is smooth. Add the nuts and carefully fold in the flour mixture, mixing until well combined

Spoon the cake batter into the prepared tin and smoothen the top with the help of a spatula. Cover the cake with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 1½ -2 hours.

Once the cake is done, allow the cake to cool completely in the tin. When the cake has cooled, place the serving plate over it and turn it upside down. Carefully remove the paper, turn it over again with the help of a plate, dust with icing sugar and serve.
