  4. Seive into the mixing bowl half of the maida mixture and add half the milk. Beat well.
  5. If making only a basic vanilla sponge cake, add 1 tsp vanilla essence now. Else skip this proceed below
  6. Seive in the remaining flour and add remaining milk. Beat 2 to 3 mins till mixture is light.
  7. For plain vanilla cake, pour batter into greased tin & bake at 150 C for 30 mins or till toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Else, proceed as below.
  8. Divide the batter into 2 parts.
  9. To remaining portion of batter, add dry fruits, ½ tsp strawberry essence. Mix with a clean spatula..
  10. Pour on top of cocoa batter and spread on top. Do not mix. May sprinkle some chopped nuts on top.
  11. Bake for 20 to 25 mins or till toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove and cool in tin for 10 mins. Un mould and cool completely on wire rack. Cut and serve/ store in airtight box in refrigerator.

You may top Fruit and Nut cake with plain glaze icing or lemon flavour icing.
