I never cook and decided it would be a good idea to start

I have a fruit cake recipe from my high school days which requires coating the fruit in the flour before adding to the rest of the mix.  Somehow, I remember (being some 20 years go) my Home Ec. teacher explaining that this step was required to stop the fruit from sinking to the bottom of the cake. 

So, I put the flour (and other dry ingredients) in a separate bowl then add the fruit.  Toss the fruit until all the fruit is coated with the flour.  Then I add this to the 'wet' ingredients.

I am going to have to try this the next time I make anything baked with fruit

I also learned that tip in home economics--always flour the wet fruit before putting into any mix...it works for pancakes so maybe it will work for you!

Doesn't matter, though--your stuff looks yummy and it all eats the same no matter where the fruit is!  yum yum yum
