Eggless Tutti Frutti Cake

When I was younger, Christmas was never complete without a good ol' Tutti Frutti Cake. This year, I wanted to make an eggless version of the recipe, says Nidhi.

Here's the recipe:

Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/2 cups (200 gm) all purpose flour/ maida
  • 1 cup (250 ml) plain curd 
  • 3/4 cup (165 gm) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup (150 ml) cooking oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup tutti frutti
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp milk 

Method

  • Sieve flour twice and keep aside.
  • Add tutti frutti and cinnamon and gently whisk it with a fork. This will ensure that the tooti frutti does not sink to the bottom.
  • Beat sugar and curd with a hand blender until sugar completely dissolves.
  • Add baking powder, baking soda and mix well. Leave it aside for five minutes and you can see the bubbles appearing.
  • Add vanilla essence, cooking oil and beat it for two minutes.
  • Slowly add flour mixture 2 tbsp at a time and blend it with the wet ingredients. Beat it well with a whisk until thick and creamy.
  • Preheat oven to 200 degree C for 10 minutes.
  • Grease a butter paper, lay it in the cake tin or loaf pan and pour the batter in the tin and keep it ready.
  • Bake in preheated oven at 200 degree C for 10 minutes, then reduce temperature to 180 deg C and bake it for 30 to 35 minutes or till a fork inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  • Brush the top of the cake with 1 tbsp milk 10 minutes before the ending time to get a nice polishing glaze.
  • Allow the cake to cool down for 10 minutes, then invert and remove the butter paper.
  • Cut slices and enjoy with a hot cup of tea, coffee or cocoa.
