Your cake has a wonderful golden crust too and look so moist and soft...one thing I like about adding fruits into cakes, they keep the cake moist!

oh i envy you Peng, my son just dislike fruits! the only fruits he will eat is only apples and it also depends on his mood. And also papaya when there's a need to, eg. he has constipation, and he knows papaya will help :)

i agree with you, it's a yummilicious cake :)
