Eggless tutti frutti cake

This post is very special for me,coz this is the first cake recipe I am postingParty…. My mom,MIL(also my ancestors)have never baked anything,also they don’t even know the ABCs of baking. So for me to I am just blank about baking…Last year by this time,I have not even dreamt of baking a cakeRolling Eyes! But now I find baking very interesting and even easier than my day to day cooking Cool! I too was once thinking baking is something I cant even imagine,its a very difficult thing to try…. But now I got enough confidence to even encourage someone who is scared of baking like I was onceRaised Eyebrow ! But I should really thank PrathibaBig Hug,for clearing all my silly doubts,regarding baking,when ever I asked her in the beginning!
I took the recipe from here,with few changes I tried and was keeping my fingers crossedNailbiting until I had a bite from the cake. It was damn good! My oven is a combination oven,which has three options- Convection/Microwave/grill. Basically I use the microwave option in everyday cooking. And the convection mode for baking cakes,cookies and pizzas…still I haven't used the grill option… I don’t even have the manual for this oven,some how just learnt the basics from online and managing to bake. Please feel free to write to me or leave comments,if you have any doubts regarding baking this cake, I will try my best of my knowledge to answer you what ever I know.
Tutti fruity eggless sponge cake

Eggless Tutti Frutti cake recipe

Continental    | Dessert
Prep Time: 15 mins    |  Cook time: 35 mins    Serves: 4

Ingredients


All purpose flour/Maida  1 & 1/2 cups 
Corn flour  3 tblsp 
Butter  100 gms 
Sugar  4 tblsp 
Baking powder  1 tsp 
Baking soda/sodium bi carb.  1/2 tsp 
Condensed milk  1/2 cup 
Soda water  1/3 cup 
Salt  1/4 tsp 
Vanilla essence  1 tsp 
Tutty fruity  4 tblsp 

Egg Replacer:

Water 2 tblsp
Baking powder 1/2 tsp
oil 2 tsp

egg replacer
Beat well until smooth(I blended in mixer using the whip/inch option.. ,I am not sure if its the right way to do,but sure worked for me!)

Method

  1. Mix well maida,corn flour,baking powder baking soda and salt well,in a large bowl.
  2. Things needed
  3. I sift the flour to ensure even mixing.
  4. sift flour
  5. Soften the butter and beat it with sugar(I used fine grain sugar) in another bowl.
  6. beat butter,sugar
  7. Add the egg replacer,condensed milk and vanilla to the beaten butter & sugar and beat again till smooth. ( I used a hand whisker)
  8. beat well
  9. Add this to the mixed flour and mix well.
  10. Add it to flour
  11. Add the soda water and mix well.(fold well,folding-mix with a spatula/laddle in a same pattern,preferably from bottom to top always)I am not a professional baker,just now started baking,so if please ignore if there is any silly mistakes in the terms I have used in the method.
  12. add to the batter
  13. Meanwhile Preheat the oven to 180 degree C.Lastly add the tutti fruity and mix well.
  14. Add tutti fruity mix well
  15. Grease a baking tray with butter/oil(I used 6 inch round tray) and pour the mix in to the tray.
  16. Pour to pan
  17. Bake for 35 minutes(keep in centre of the oven) or until the cake is done, you can check by inserting a knife,if it comes out without sticking,clean then your cake is done!
  18. cool down on wire rack
Notes:
  • My cake was bit crumbly. I think there should be some proportion imbalance between wet and dry ingredients…
  • After cooling down also,the outer layer of the cake will be crisp and slightly hard.Keep it for a day and it will soften by itself! It stays good for 4-5 days!
  • You can use bread pan to bake or your preferred shape pan for this cake. I used a 6 inch round use and throw aluminium pan.
  • You can omit the tutti fruity and bake it, its the basic eggless sponge cake !
  • I used condensed milk,but as the original recipe calls for evaporated milk,so you can try that too increasing the sugar quantity…Please refer the link for the original recipe!
  • Follow the instructions and measurements and sure this recipe is keeper,go a head and try even if you are beginner like me  Happy
  • I used salted butter(amul) and omitted the salt.

After done,cool down in a wire rack and slice it and enjoy!

the cake!

  62. Hi raks,
    I tried getting the soda water in an Indian store, but they had only the sweetened soda water, Limca.
    So, can u pls tell me the brand that u bought and what is it called?...Also, are there any alternatives for the soda water?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Priya I bought a brand called Schweppes,you can see in the first step picture....sure you can find in supermarkets,try and see,ask as club soda...

    ReplyDelete
  64. This method I am not sure though,
    Alternative for soda water you can try eno fruit salt(not the flavored) mixed with water,make sure u just mix it only when needed!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Hello, Cake looks lovely!

    I have a question..in ingredients there is corn flour..is it like flour of corn(corn meal) or corn starch(something like arrowroot). I am doubtful because in India corn starch is also sometimes called corn flour..and I have never used corn flour in cakes only corn starch at times.

    Thanks in advance.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hi Namrata,its not corn meal,its corn starch(it will be white in colour),not the yellow one..Hope this had cleared your doubt!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Thanks for replying. Was wondering what temperature should be used..will 350 F be fine?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Yes 350 F will be fine,I baked at 180 degree C... I had wrongly put 180 F its 180 C,I jus noticed,Thanks :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Wow!!!!!Cake looking wonderful!!!

    I'm amongst one of them who is scared of baking. never tried baking....

    but really want to.

    I'm having LG micro combi model (micro, grill & combi). Can it be used for baking? if yes, what temp. should i set for baking?

    Plz reply.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Hi monsa,
    My MIL has the same model as you have,but I am so sorry you cant bake this cake in that mode. only if your oven has the covec mode,you can bake...This combi mode is the combination of microwave and grill mode.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Hi Raji

    Your cake is too awesome n mouth watering once we look it.In ur receipe u've mentioned egg replacer,wat is that egg replacer n also tel me wether we will be able to do in a cooker because im not having microwave oven.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Hi sudha,egg replacer is nothing but the things we add in the place of egg,people who donot eat egg can use this proportion I have mentioned in any cake recipes. I found it in another blog...And this cake cannot be done in microwave or pressure cooker...only in a microwave oven with convection mode in it,you can make it. Otherwise you can make it in an OTG. I will soon post an eggless chocolate cake which you can try steaming. So stay tuned :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. hi raji
    actually i am confused about the time to be set for preheating the oven ana what time should be set after keeping the cake mixture inside te oven(my one is cornella electric oven)
    pls respond
    thanx

    ReplyDelete
  77. Hi , You should pre heat the oven to 180 degree C also bake at the same temperature. For any baking,preheat temperature and baking temperature is same(as far as I know)
    Usually if you set the temperature and start preheating,the oven will automatically set the time and stop/ gives a beep sounds after the preheat is done. Hope this helps..

    ReplyDelete
  78. hi raji
    the cake came out very well, it was my first cake
    thank u very much

    ReplyDelete
  79. Hi, could you please tell your 1 tsp equals to how many ml? and similarly one tblsp to ml?

    ReplyDelete
  80. 1 tsp = 5 ml,1 tblsp = 15 ml

    ReplyDelete
  81. should I bake it in high power mode or less? what was the exact power mode you used?

    ReplyDelete
  82. There is no such power setting in the convection mode,high or low power mode is only for micro wave(in my oven). Otherwise only you have to set 180 degrees in the convection mode.

    ReplyDelete
  83. hi again,

    your 1 cup equals to?

    ReplyDelete
  84. hi raks
    the cake looks great.if we want to add eggs how many eggs should we add?why we need to add soda water..when we r adding baking soda?is it good to make with egg or without egg?i will try this recipe....

    ReplyDelete
  85. Hi Raks,

    I'm planning to try this.Please help me whether the oven should be set to heat from all the sides?(from top,bottom,sides)??

    ReplyDelete
  86. I am so sorry. I have no idea about the oven heating process in ur model. May be I will ask my friends and get back to you...

    ReplyDelete
  87. My Oven is of SONA company.I brought it in Courts.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Hey...looks awesome... should try it sooner.....i would like to know where you got the sift. I have been hunting since long and unable to find one. Please lemme know....

    ReplyDelete
  89. can i use electric hand mixer for beating

    ReplyDelete
  90. Hi

    I baked this cake today and it came out really well. In fact, I used the exact measurements and it did not crumble at all.

    But I have a very basic doubt. When I baked the cake (or the last time when I baked the vanilla cake) the top kind of bubbled out. Now if I wanted to frost the cake, how is it done? Do we just cut off the top part to get it flat?

    Thanks,
    Shwetha

    ReplyDelete
  91. Hi Raks,
    Have done this cake 3 times now. and it has come out well all the times. It is a hit at our home. Thanks for the receipe :)

    ReplyDelete
  92. when and how to use egg replacer

    ReplyDelete
  93. all the three items of egg replacer have to mix first or not.i have ifb 30sc2 model of microwave but all time i tried cake in it not results good.it doesnot cook at the bottom and gets over cooked at top.plz tell me wht to do

    ReplyDelete
  94. You bake in Microwave mode?

    ReplyDelete
  95. no not in micro mode but in convection mode.in micro mode it results good but in convection mode it is always a flop.also tell me whn u bake cake would u cover it or not which type of baking bowl do u use

    ReplyDelete
  96. all items of egg replacer are to mix first or they are used one by one

    ReplyDelete
  97. hi raji
    ur cske is vry nicely baked i hope i will try and also get the same result .plz tell me i have a bowl which has one cup capacity in it so wht will be the proportion of all ingredients

    ReplyDelete
  98. Mamta, Middle rack should be fine to bake.Sorry for the late response...

    Hi Ekta,

    This egg replacer ingredients should be mixed first and added to the flour. And its always better to buy measuring cups to do baking. It will be handy. Or if you have kitchen scale, it could help. Or buy pyrex glass measuring cup, which has all cup measurements marked in it. Hope this helps....

    ReplyDelete
  99. hi raji,
    i said i have small baking dish which can have only one cup batter in it.since ur recipe shows 1 and half cul maida so how can i get 1 cup maida+cornflour proportions for all ingredients.plz tell me shall i cover the cake dish while baking or not.if yes than with wht thing should i cover it.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Hi Ekta, you can half the measurements. Say for 1 & 1/2 cup flour you can use 3/4 cup and so on. Just bake this cake using half the measurements.

    ReplyDelete
  101. hi
    plz tell me shold i cover the cake or not and wht type of baking dish shud i use borosil or aluminium dish

    ReplyDelete
  102. Hi ekta, You can cover the cake whiel baking to get it evenly baked without a burnt top. Use butter paper for that. And I would suggest the aluminium dish the best.

    ReplyDelete
  103. hello
    and thanks vry much for ur sugestion hope it will work great for me

    ReplyDelete
  104. hello raks
    can i use aluminium foil in microwave convection mode while baking a cake to cover it.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I think butter paper will be perfect for it. Aluminium foil not sure...

    ReplyDelete
  106. Hi your cake looks really yummy and delicious. Nice one. I have a small doubt can you clarify it. Ive also bake tutty fruity cake but with a readymade cake mix. It turned out well but all the tutty fruity stuck to the base of the cake everytime i bake. I mixed it well before baking but still it happens everytime, so can you tell me what should be done to make it in between the cake?

    ReplyDelete
  107. Vibha,

    Try greasing the pan first with butter and then sprinkle some flour,say one or two tsp of flour and spread evenly. Then pour the batter and try baking. After baking is done, keep the pan over wet cloth for 10 minutes to cool down and then invert the cake. Hope this will work. Let me know.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Hi thanks for your immediate response. But my question was something different. The tutti fruity doesnt stick on to the bottom of pan but on the bottom of the cake. On your cake i noticed that it was on the middle of the cake. Hope you understand. Is there any tip on this?

    ReplyDelete
  109. Oh, I dint read it properly, my bad :(

    actually try dusting the tutti fruity before adding it to the batter.That is before adding the tutti fruity to the cake batter, add a 2 tsp of plain flour to the tutti fruity and mix so that the flour coats the tuitti fruity well. Then add it to the cake batter.

    And I assume you are adding the tutti fruity at the end as mentioned in the recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  110. hi i want to know where can i get tutty fruity in US i checked with couple of stores like walmart target but i didnt get it can u pls suggest me the cake looks really yummy want to try

    ReplyDelete
  111. Hi, I read these in some forums. But discussion was on 2008, so not sure if its still there. Still you can try there and in other Indian stores. Edison patel ,sabzi mandi - these were the places they had mentioned. Check this in baking section where they keep dry fruits. If you dont get tuitty frutti, then you can also try sunmaid mixed fruits. Though it has more of raisins, you can pick tuitti fruitti bits from that.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Hi raks i just came in to thank you for the tips you had given. I tried coating the tutti fruity with the flour and it turned out well. All the tutti fruity was in its place. Thanks again.

  118. Hi...

    Loved the recipe and tried it..it came out well...had a doubt and thought of posting it...the ingredients in the egg replacer will be the same irrespective of the number of eggs is is? I mean if the recipe requires 1 egg or 8 eggs I should make the egg replacer with the same measurements?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The egg replacer is for one egg, so if it asks for two eggs, you have to double it as well.

  119. A long due bookmark, I prepared and posted this :)

  120. Is that a tray in the picture where you've poured the batter or is it some thing else on the baking tray? If so, can you please tell me what it is and where to get it...( Im asking about the silver foil cup kind of a thing you have used)

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes it's use and throw aluminium foil tray which can be lined over a baking tray. I got that in Singapore fair price

    1. Preheating should be done until the baking temperature reaches. usually the oven beeps when the temperature reaches in mine. Check you manual for preheating procedure.
