Tutti Fruti Cake

Tutti Fruti cake needs no introduction to many Indians. It's always available in bakeries across towns and tastes awesome with a cup of Chai! We get this cake in our local Indian bakery. Every time my husband goes there he doesn't stop with buying one.
 Tutti fruti aka candied fruit, pineapple essence and pineapple juice makes this cake so aromatic and flavorful. The moment I saw the recipe at paritaskitchen ,I bookmarked it. Unfortunately got around to doing it now.
So, here goes the recipe! I did not have pineapple juice, but replaced it with mango juice! It still tasted pretty amazing.

Get ready

  • 2 cups all purpose flour/ maida
  • 1 & 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup tutti fruti mixed with 1 tbsp of flour
  • 2 large eggs at room temp
  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened at room temp
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp pineapple essence/ extract
  • 2 tbsp mango juice

  • Pre heat oven to 350 F, Grease a loaf pan or any pan you want to bake in.
  • Whisk all thedry ingredients together ( flour, baking soda and powder)
  • Cream the butter and sugar well till light and creamy. takes about 2-3 mins .I used the back of a spatula for this.
  • Using a electric hand mixer, add one egg at a time and beat well till they look pale  and creamy.
  • Add the pineapple extract, mango juice and mix well.
  • Add the milk and flour and gently fold till everything is combined well. do not over beat/ mix.
  • Finally add the tutti fruti and fold well.
  • Bake for 40 -45 mins or till a tooth pick comes out clean when inserted.
  • Allow it to cool well, slice and enjoy.

The hardest part is to wait for the cake to cool. If you rush and cut, the cake will become all crumbly.

Enjoy with tea/ coffee!
