Eggless Tutti Frutti Cake

I am crazy about baking, even though I end up creating disasters some times. During, Navratras however, I find it a bit difficult to think of eggless recipes that I can bake in a jiffy. It’s a Sunday today, and I was wondering since morning that I really should bake something; but what!

As I was craving madly for some soft and spongy cake, I decided to treat myself to a homemade tutti frutti cake, made without eggs!

This recipe is simple, and takes, literally 35-40 minutes of prep and cooking time. I have used a regular length bread tin for this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup plain yogurt;
  • ½ cup and 1 tablespoon melted unsalted butter;
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour;
  • ½ cup castor sugar (you can increase it by 1-2 tablespoon; I like medium sweetness);
  • 1 and 1/3 teaspoon baking powder;
  • ½ teaspoon soda bicarbonate;
  • A pinch of salt;
  • 30-40 grams tutti frutti, mixed with 2 teaspoon all-purpose flour;
  • 2-3 drops of mixed fruit flavour and 1-2 drops of orange color (both optional).

Method:

  • Whisk yogurt well, for 3-4 minutes;
  • Add melted butter and sugar into the yogurt, and whisk well for another 1-2 minutes; at this stage, you can add flavouring agent and food color;
  • Mix together flour, raising agents and salt, and sift twice;
  • Now mix the dry and wet ingredients together, and mix until well combined;
  • Preheat your oven at 180 degree Celsius, and line the cake tin with greased parchment paper;
  • Before pouring the mixture into the tin, add the tutti frutti and mix lightly. Tip: Mixing the tutti frutti with dry flour, makes it lighter; meaning all the frutti bits will spread evenly throughout the cake and won’t settle at the bottom.
  • Bake for 25-27 minutes, at 180 degree Celsius;
