I am packing some of my birthday cake for Hima who is hosting a Sunday Snacks Event on her blog with the theme “Bake It”
TUTTI FRUITY CAKE (EGGLESS)
September 6th was my birthday and since we have turned partial vegans recently and would like to avoid eggs, I thought why not bake an eggless cake at home. Iam not too fond of chocolate cakes so I thought I will bake a vanilla cake but I wanted it to be rich, I didn’t want nuts also….heck, why not its my birthday cake and I will add in the ingredients I like whether or not traditionally it is part of the recipe or not. I guess I must be part of the Daring Bakers. The best part is I don’t even have a conventional oven used for baking. I do all my baking in the microwave oven. I truly am a daring baker aren’t I? But the cake turned out to be a dream. Just perfect….ofcourse as everyone knows you wont get the brown crust when you bake a cake in the microwave oven. Here’s a picture of my spongy, soft rich Tutti Fruity Cake. I decided to name it so because I have added Tutti Fruity the red, orange and green raisin like things that you see in the fruit cakes available in the market. I love these, they add a wonderful array of colors to the cake. I have decided Iam going to call this Tutti Fruity Cake. Here is an Original recipe.
Tutti Fruiti – 2 tbsps
Ripe Bananas- 2 Mashed
Oil- 1/2 cup
Milk- 1/2 cup
Vanilla Powder – 1 tsp or Vanilla Essence – 1 tsp
Baking powder – 1 tsp
Little Maragarine or Butter for greasing the glass container
In a bowl, mix together sugar and butter till it is creamy. Add in the Tutti Fruiti and 2 mashed bananas, mix well, Add oil and milk and mix well. Add the Baking powder, Vanilla powder or essence and the self raising flour
Mix well. Ensure that there are no lumps. It should be a uniform mixture. It will become like a batter. Remember use the same bowl or cup for all the measurements else the recipe won’t work. Don’t mix the cake batter too much else the cake will become hard, just a light mix till it comes to the batter consistency is okay.
Now take a round/ square/ oval glass container in which you can bake the cake. Grease this container well. Pour the batter into this container and keep on medium-high in the microwave for 10-12 minutes. Put a knife into the cake and check….If the knife comes out clean, the cake is done, but if it comes out sticky you need to cook it for some more time. Once the cake is done. Remove it from the microwave oven and allow it to cool and then cut it into pieces and serve.
