  • Soaking the dry fruits in wine for a good number of days is ideal but make sure it is in an air-tight container to avoid degradation.
  • When using baking soda in the recipe, make sure you sift or whisk with the other dry ingredients before adding to the batter. This is done to ensure uniformity. Otherwise, the baked good may have large holes.
  • In the process of baking, test the cake with a skewer. Baking time may vary for different ovens. You do not want the skewer to have any cake bits.
