Cream Cheese Fruit Cake

Last weekend i tried this recipe for my friend's tea party. Its a superb treat of taste and a perfect blend of rich fruits and the moisture of cream cheese go so good together. I am sure you will definitely love it..! 

90 gm butter
125gm of cream cheese
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
3/4 cup castor sugar
2 eggs
1 cup / 125gm sultanas 
3/4 cup chopped raisins 
3/4 cup currants
1 cup quartered glace cherries
3/4 cup chopped glace apricots
3/4 plain flour
1/2 cup self-raising flour

Line  a deep 20cm round cake pan with 2 sheets of paper.
Cream butter, cream cheese, rind and sugar in small bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffly. Beat in eggs quickly one at a time, beat only until combined. Transfer mixture to large bowl, stir in fruits and sifted flours in 2 lots. Spread mixture into prepared pan, bake in moderately slow oven for about 1 1/2 hours. Cover with foil, cool in pan. Remove foil and pan, wrap cake in plastic wrap. 
The best thing about this recipe is that you can keep this cake for about a month without loosing its taste and freshness, if stored in a cool dark place. ENJOY :)
