Tutti- Frutti Cake

Wish you all my friends and readers a very happy and prosperous new year!!
I start this New Year 2012 by posting my first baking recipe. Yes it’s something special and close to my heart. My long time baking dream comes true on this year, my hubby surprised me by presenting oven for this new year and I am was very happy and excited to share this recipe with you all. I took this recipe from here
, ofcourse with little bit measurement changes. It’s very easy and beginners recipe too. Long time back I goggled and noted this cake recipe, it comes out so perfect and soft without any flaw on my first attempt itself. I am dedicating this Tutti- frutti cake to my dear hubby. He really enjoyed and just loved it. I will try post many baking recipes in near future....

Maida – 1 and 1/2cup
Granulated sugar – 1 cup
Tutti – Frutti – 1/2cup
Butter – 2 tbsp
Milk – 1/2 cup
Egg – 2
Baking Powder – 1 and 1/2tsp
Baking soda – 1/2 tsp
Vanilla essence – 2 tsp
Chopped Nuts – 2tsp (for garnishing)

  • Sieve flour, baking powder and baking soda together for thrice and keep aside.
  • Sprinkle some flour over the tutti fruit and coat well and set aside.

  • In a bowl mix butter and sugar together and beat well till fluffy. Now add 1 egg at a time and beat well and add next egg and again beat well. Then add vanilla essence and milk and mix well.
  • Add Maida mixture and mix gently to combine all.
  • Finally add tutti – frutti and mix well gently.

  • Pour the batter to the baking tray and make even on all sides and sprinkle some chopped nuts on top.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degree c and bake for 35 to 40 min or until the tooth pick comes out clean.

  • Allow to cool down and enjoy...
Soft and Yummy cake is ready!!


  • Timing may vary from each one, so check after 40 min and then set time again.
  • You could substitute normal sugar with granulated sugar.
  • You can also add chopped nuts with tutti -frutti.
