Add granulated sugar into heated saucepan, pour hot water and lemon juice dont stir it.allow it to boil and caramelize ,it takes approximately 7 to 8 mins. when it truns slight brownish in colour and wen it starts thickening ,add boiling water , swirl the pan slowly and carefully and keep it aside. Allow it to cool.

3) Beat the Oil along with the powdered sugar.
4) Add egg yolk (one at a time), mix all the egg yolk thoroughly.

7) Preheat the oven at 325 or 350 Fahrenheit
8) spay oil on the baking pan and sprinkle little bit of flour to it.
9) Add caramel syrup to the above batter
10) Add the dry fruits to it and stir softly.
11) Add beaten egg white (Fluffy egg white) to the Batter.(For getting the egg white more an more fluffy add little bit of powdered sugar).
12) Bake until a toothpick which is inserted in the center part of the cake comes out clean.It will take around 45 minutes in a normal square pan and 1 hr for a regular loaf pan.

:- U can avoid the 1 st step if u have soaked dried fruit mix.
:- Before starting the mixing process, separate the egg yolk and egg white in separate pans.
:- Beat the egg white for about 10 to 15 mins to get fluffy cream.
