  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and gently fold them together. Add tutti fruity or nuts and fold again.
  4. Grease a baking pan and pour the batter. Tap to remove any air bubbles.
  5. Bake the cake in a preheated oven at 180 degree centigrade for 25 minutes.
  6. Insert a toothpick in the center to check whether it is done.
