Cream Cheese and Mixed Fruits Butter Cake

Yummy Bakes | 9:12 AM |
This is one of the cake which I have book-marked for the longest time I can remember when I first started blogging.  This was seen at Aunty Yochana's blog.  I held back baking cos I would have to search for a recipe that use 125g of cream cheese.  I managed to get this cake out while I did the blueberry coffee cake the other week.  Perfect clear the cream cheese and clear the balance mixed fruits.... yeah!

I love especially the mixed fruits which have been soaked overnight in brandy.  Am I an alcoholic?  Of course I am not but I just love that extra fragrance from the brandy and like that combination of butter with cream cheese.
