  3. Add remaining flour and remaining milk followed by all of the sugar. Mix until the dough becomes dry enough to handle; it will be sticky.
  4. Mix in the slightly dried, soaked dried fruit (cranberries, apricots, cherries).
  5. Bake in a 20cm round pan that has been sprayed with parchment on top and sprayed again, at 375F for 40 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. Turn over onto wire rack once out of the oven.
