Pound Cake (with Mixed Fruits)

Tis the season to be jolly ~ Lalalala La La La La La~ Mixed Fruits Pound for Christmas ~ but actually it’s more that I need to use up the mixed fruits in the fridge which have been lying there for sometime already. Heehee. This is originally a pound cake receipe and it’s a really good one, comparable to Sara Lee, compact yet soft. I added mixed fruits to it as I like pound with some addition ~ either fruits or nuts to enhance the taste.
