Tutti-frutti cake

20150426_110400

Never a fan of tutti-frutti, not even as a child, I still wanted to make a small tutti frutti cake yesterday. Browsing through the internet, I found that there is no standard/commonly used/popular recipe. Everyone seemed to have made their own version. So I did exactly that. The results were good and I share them with you here.

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 100 gms maida
  • 100 gms sugar( I used brown sugar)
  • 100 gms butte/ cream ( I used fresh cream)
  • 1 tsp baking power
  • 1/2 C tutti frutti
  • 1/4 C raisins
  • few crushed cashews
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1-2 tbs milk

Method:

  • Sift flour and baking powder.
  • Beat eggs till fluffy.  Add the sugar (powdered is better) and when well incorporated add the butter/cream and vanilla essence.
  • Fold in the maida- baking powder. If you find the batter is too thick, add 1-2 tbsp milk.
  • Throw in the tutti-frutti and raisins.
  • Pour into a greased tin. Decorate with cashew on top and bake at 180Deg.C for 20 mins. or till done.

The cake was light and the brown sugar added a lovely layer of flavour. If you prefer a richer cake  (tutti frutti cake is better when rich), use butter in place of cream. Also a dash of rum may add to the flavour.
