Honeydew melon cake

Even with so many things to do, sometimes life does get boring. Maybe I'm bored with the day to day routine - rushing through the traffic jam going and returning from work. Then managing the home affairs and blogging as well. Instead of whining, I decided to bake. Seldom the case and quite challenging for me. Also instead of the usual types of cakes, I baked this cake with honeydew melon. Just like that for theres's no valid answers what's with the invention. As you can see, the cake was a success - fruity and nutmeg scented.

400g honey dew melon - remove skin and seeds and chopped
75g butter - melted
2 eggs
75g sugar
1 1/2 cup milk
125 all purpose flour
1/2 tsp nutmeg powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
Combine and stir butter, milk and vanilla together.
Keep aside.
Sift flour, baking powder and nutmeg.
Put aside. 
Cream eggs and sugar till light and fluffy.
Stir in butter milk mixture bit by bit. 
Gently fold in sifted flour and chopped melon
Bake at 175C for 1 hour until the top is nice and brown and cake is set.
For a glossy finish, dust some icing sugar on top.
