Start with the flour, sifted, then add the sugar, dried fruits, eggs, oil and mix thoroughly.
I usually use a 2 lb. cake tin. Bake for 45-50 minutes depending on oven, Gas Mark 4 (350 degrees F).
Enjoy! Keeps for 2 to 3 days in tinfoil and can be toasted as well.

Caster sugar is just plain granulated put into a grinder and made a little finer, but not too much as you don't want it to turn into icing sugar. But, I have tried ordinary sugars, esp brown refined and it works too. Cheers Gerry.
Your spelling of yogurt was strange till I saw you were from the UK. I also love the differences in Canadian linguistics like colour, flavour and such.
This sounds wonderful. I will def' try it. Do you know you can make cake over here with Tomato Soup? I will post it for you. If you love unusual cakes, this one is right up your alley!
This is a link to a site that specializes in a certain type of flour. Do you recognize it?
Hope this helps.
