“Good friends are like stars. You don’t always see them, but you know that they are always there”
This Monday was my friend’s birthday and we just could not meet on that day but I decided to surprise her with this beautiful Cherry & Raisins Cake when she arrived Yesterday. I had decided to wrap up cooking for the last two days of the year but when I think back my bonding with her, I just could not keep myself from baking this one especially for her.
This post is dedicated to so many friends like her who have made my life beautiful with their constant faith in me, my abilities and of course showering their love and affection on me whenever I needed them the most. Naming them would be an understatement for the things they have done for me….so this is a humble last post of the year celebrating the spirit of friendship……
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY READERS …..

Classic Cherry & Raisin Cake
Coat the cherry and raisins in 1/2 teaspoon of All purpose flour and keep aside.
In a separate bowl mix yogurt, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Once you add the baking soda you can see the bubbles in the yogurt after 2 to 3 minutes.
Then add oil and whisk well. Add the flour mixture into this and keep mixing.
Now add the orange juice and whisk well.Now add the cherry and raisins into the batter and gently fold with the help of a spatula.
Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and tap on the kitchen counter to level the top.
Bake in a pre heated oven for 50 to 55 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the middle of the cake. Cake is ready if the toothpick comes out clean. If not, bake for some more time, and then check again.Cool the cake in the pan for 5 minutes and then take out to cool in the wire rack.
Once Cool, slice some glazed cherries on top and sprinkle powdered sugar and serve.
