      If using non-stick pans then just spray with a little oil spray.
    10. 10
      Bake for 40 to 50 minutes for loaf pans or till lightly golden brown and insert toothpick comes out clean. If baking in bundt pan, it should be about the same time.

      Remove cake from oven and let sit on cake rack. Remove cake from pans and place on serving dish.
    12. 12
      Put icing sugar in sieve and tap side of sieve to get a light dusting all over top of cake.
    13. 13
      Serve cake slices with whipped cream or ice cream, makes a yummy light dessert.
    14. 14
      Note: you can do a summer berry cake by adding fresh fruit like blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, diced peaches, pears, and or nectarines.
    15. 15
      When making the fresh berry cake use either 1/2 cup of fruit cocktail juice + 1/cup milk OR use 1 cup of milk, but if your replacing the juice with the whole cup of milk you will need to add 1/3 cup more sugar.

      This turned out to be on the moist side even after baking for 45 minutes. It tasted nice. I served it with vanilla ice cream :)
