1 cup all purpose flour
1 scant cup oil
2 tsp vanila essence
1 tsp lemon zest
1 scant cup sugar (I used half brown, half white)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp custard powder
1/3 cup dried fruit bits (add more or less as per your liking)
A pinch of salt
In a bowl, take the eggs and with an electric beater whip till smooth and creamy. Add the oil and beat further. Add vanila and sugar and beat till fluffy. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, salt, baking powder, and custard powder. Add this mixture little at a time to the egg mixture and beat. Reserve little flour and mix the fruit pieces in that (this is the step I skipped). Fold this fruit flour mixture to the batter and mix with a spatula.
Pre-heat the oven at 180 degree celsius. Grease a medium sized or 2 small sized loaf tins and pour the batter into it. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool on wire racks completely before storing in air tight containers.
