tutti frutti cake recipe

to make this tutti frutti cake, i have used my eggless vanilla cake recipe. i have updated the post with better pictures. the recipe was first posted in december 2013 and it was time i updated the old pictures with new ones.

i have been making this tutti frutti cake for many years now. initially i used to add ½ cup oil or melted butter in the recipe, but later i started reducing the amount of oil when making this cake. i felt that with even with ¼ cup oil or melted butter the cake gets a lovely light crumb and is moist. you can use both melted butter or oil in the recipe. i have made the cake with both oil and butter. both give good results in the cake. if using oil, then use a neutral flavoured and neutral tasting oil like sunflower oil.

tutti frutti is one ingredient that i use, which has artificial colors. i don’t have the time and energy to make these candied raw papaya pieces which we call as tutti frutti, at home. so i buy from outside when i have to add them in recipes. another cake recipe where you can add them is this christmas fruit cake.

  1. I was a bit concerned about the curd in the cake. Does the cake taste pungent or will it have a normal flavour. Please do let me know.

    • not at all. curd does not lend any pungent or sour curd in the tutti frutti cake. you won’t feel its taste. but make sure not to use sour curd (khatta dahi).

  2. Can I use 3/4th cup of powdered sugar instead of 3/4th cup sugar ? If I am using powdered sugar what will be the amount?

    • you can use 3/4 of powdered sugar. generally, when sugar is powdered, the amount in cups comes to 1 or 2 tablespoons more for powdered sugar. so you can either use 3/4th cup OR 3/4th cup + 1 or 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar.
