This cake will stay fresher longer because of the high sugar content available in the raisins and fig. This Buttermilk Fruit Cake is excellent warm from the oven or at room temperature. You can refrigerator it for about a week. I used golden raisins, but you can also use black raisins. **I used curd / yogurt(homemade). You can use store bought buttermilk also. Please don’t use very thin buttermilk.
