When I bake fruit cakes, most of the raisins, sultanas, cherries sink to the bottom of the cake. I tried coating the fruits with flour but they still sink! why?

Because they are heavy!! Coating them in flour is the right thing to do. If you chop them slightly and coat them in flour (make sure it's all purpose) before adding them to the batter they won't be as heavy and won't sink to the bottom. If your recipe uses cake flour try substituting all-purpose flour instead. It's more coarse than cake flour and will help the raisins stay mixed in the batter. Also, if your batter is very thin the raisins, or other mix-ins, will easily sink. Try decreasing the amount of liquid to create a thicker batter!
