  3. Note that you could also do that in a microwave oven.
  4. Beat eggs with a whisk until frothy in a small bowl; slowly whisk eggs into fruit mixture.
  5. Combine all dry ingredients together then add all at once to wet mixture; stir well.
  6. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 1-1/2- 2 hours, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean.
