Default Fruit Cake

I was busy in the kitchen today.

200 g butter
2,5 dl sugar
3 eggs
4 dl wheat flour
1 tsp vanilla sugar
1,5 tsp baking powder
1 - 2 dl finely chopped dried fruits ( I used dried apples, apricots, plums and pears)
1 dl chopped cocktail cherries (maraschino cherries)
0,5 dl chopped peanuts (or other nuts)
1 dl orange juice

Cream the softened butter and sugar until stiff. Add the eggs one by one. Mix flour with baking powder, vanilla sugar and chopped dried fruits and nuts. Add the flour mixture into the batter. Add 1 cup of orange juice. Mix gently. Pour the batter into a greased baking dish. Bake 1 hour at 175 C. Remove from oven, cool and remove from the pan.
