Tutti Fruiti Cake

I know I know.... I have been missing in action for a while now right? I did not post even during the holiday season, when the cooking actually takes its peak, with all the baking, parties and potlucks. Last year, we had been facing a lot of health issues and it was so hard to keep up with everything, that I thought, may be, keeping it slow would be one way to get through it. So after a break, last weekend, I thought to get back but then the flu hit the entire family and the blogging went down to square one. Guess this year too, would be no different. While we are still recovering from flu, I wanted to post something colourful and hence this post.

It is so hard to start again from where you stopped. I have been thinking for a while to get back. But I still was not able to get through my laziness. Finally after all the push from all who told me to start again, here I am. I hope to keep up with your expectations and also to find that same energy to keep blogging. Today's post is a simple but feel good cake - both in its taste as well as looks. If you are among the lucky ones to have got a long weekend, then do bake it and enjoy it with your family and friends.

  1. 1 cup of all purpose flour
  2. 2/3 cup of sugar
  3. 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  4. 1/4 tsp of baking soda
  5. A pinch of salt
  6. 1/2 cup of buttermilk
  7. 1 large egg
  8. 1/4 cup of butter at room temperature
  9. 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
  10. 1/2 cup of tutti frutti
  • Preheat the oven at 400 F.
  • In a bowl, take all the dry ingredients1-5 and whisk it well.
  • In another bowl, mix all the wet ingredients 6-9 with a hand mixer
  • Add the wet ingredients to dry ingredients little by little, while you beat the mixture.
  • Toss the tutti fruiti in a tbsp of all purpose flour. Add it to the batter and give one final mix to have it spread evenly throughout the batter.
  • Prepare the baking pan, by greasing it with butter and lining a parchment paper. Pour in the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake the cake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or untill a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Let the cake cool. Slice and enjoy.
  1. Tossing the dry fruits with all purpose flour would ensure that the tutti fruiti don't get sunk to the bottom of the cake but is evenly distributed.
  2. Half way through baking, if you find the crust of the cake turning harder, at the same time the cake is still undone in the center, then you could cover the baking pan with an aluminium foil for rest of the baking process. This would help the cake to cook without leaving a harder crust.
