    This looks good. I would like to try it but I am uncertain about the corn flour. "Corn flour" as an ingredient in recipes can confuse me because it can refer to at least two different things: cornstarch (the British refer to cornstarch as cornflour); or a fine-milled flour made for corn, which is used, for example, to make Latino tortillas, etc. Could you please clarify this ingredient for me?

    Vbohanz, the name cornstarch is for Americans. For British and Australians is cornflour. Then cornstarch, cornflour are the same product. All are starch of the grain of corn, called "maize". But the correct revenue is the cornmeal that is something totally different, "cornmeal" is yellow, "Cornflour" is white and thin

    Can we add raisins and other dried fruits for this recipe? If yes, at which stage of the baking should we add the dried fruits?

    Is the all purpose flour the same as the flour used for baking cakes?

    Certainly, you can add grapes and other fruits. Do this after stage four.

    How to prevent the dried fruits from sinking to the bottom of the cake after baking? I seem to always have the same problem in my baking if I put in dried fruits. Any suggestion?
