    • Remove the top sheet of plastic wrap or parchment paper. Evenly spread the dry fruit filling over the rolled-out chocolate dough.

    • 1/2 cup mixed chopped candied fruits (green and red cherries.)

    • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
    • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • A pinch of salt

    Method

    • For best results, soak dried fruits and nuts in orange juice for 1-2 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
    • Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Grease and line a 9-inch round or square cake tin with parchment paper.

    • In another bowl, whisk together the sugar, vegetable oil, melted butter, yogurt, and vanilla extract until smooth.
    • Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients gradually. Mix gently until just combined. Avoid overmixing.

    • Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin, spread it evenly, and gently tap the tin on the counter to remove any air bubbles.
