Tutti frutti cake or cupcake is my personal favorite. If you’re looking for perfect Tutti Frutti Cake recipe, this would be perfect to follow, … A version of a classic favorite made with candied fruits & nuts(Optional if allergic to nuts) – the perfect after school snack and my favorite is to serve during tea/coffee time!
When I want to bake this cake faster, I use cupcake tray to almost reduce baking time to half.
This fruitier nuttier and slightly citrusy cake is made without egg, using full fat yogurt to achieve moist fluffy airy texture of the cake. This cake recipe can be converted into basic yellow vanilla sponge cake by simply omitting fruits and nuts.
To prepare fruit cake, you will need following ingredients:
1.5 cups flour
1/4 cup custard powder, I use unsweetened from Indian grocery. The reason to add custard powder is to achieve the color like the cakes baked with egg, that yellow color instead of pale looking cake and it also enhances the flavor.
1.5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup oil
1 cup yogurt
3/4 to 1 cup sugar
1/4 cup Lemon juice or 1/2 cup Orange Juice
1 tsp Zest of a Lemon, optional
Water as needed to adjust the consistancy. Takes about 1/2 cup or less
1 cup tutti fruity or cake mix with nuts
can be flavored with cardamom or all spice if desired
Below is the video instructions for making eggless light fruit cake with tutti fruity & nuts.
Before, I used to bake cakes using condensed milk and butter but now I prefer oil instead of butter and replace condensed milk with yogurt & sugar to make light & airy cake. The cake made with condensed milk & butter tend to get hard once refrigerated or even at room temperature, may feel dry as well while eating. So this is my go to recipe these days to prepare any flavored cakes.
