Panforte recipe: I just finished baking this fruitcake, Does the batter puff and rise up whle baking (and falls once the cake is removed?)

I didn't expect the cake to rise since it doesn't have any leaveners, just curious if this is to be expected

Are there any eggs or egg whites in the cake? This will make it rise slightly and, depending on the structure of the cake and other conditions, may or may not fall as it cools.

Cakes without leaveners may rise from air that is mixed and trapped in the batter when making the cake.
