tutti frutti noorsrecipes

Ingredients:

  • Maida/All-Purpose Flour – 2 cups
  • Castor sugar – 1 ¼ Cup
  • Butter – 1 cup
  • Eggs – 5
  • Baking Powder –  2 tsp
  • Vanilla Essence – 1 tsp
  • Dry fruits Mix (Almonds, Cashews, Raisins, Walnuts, Pistachio)s – ½ Cup
  • Tutti Frutti – ½ Cup
  • Milk – ¼ Cup
  • Spice powder – 1 tsp

Method:

  • Keep all ingredients ready with the above mentioned measurements before you start preparing the cake.
  • If you do not have castor sugar, run the sugar in a food processor or mixer for a few seconds to make superfine sugar, (make sure not to powder it) then measure. Here you will need 1 ¼ cup. You can also use 1 ¼ cup of granulated sugar instead of castor sugar.
  • Sieve Maida/All-Purpose Flour, baking powder, Spice powder thrice so that all are thoroughly mixed. Mix in the dry fruits and tutti frutti.
  • Soften the butter before beating. Do not melt.
  • Eggs should be at room temperature. If refrigerated, keep them out for about an hour before baking.
  • Grease the bread tin with butter and dust with Maida/All-Purpose Flour, so that the cake comes off easily once baked. You can also use cooking spray.
  • Place the bread tin on the parchment paper, trace it and cut it out, then place it on the bottom of the bread tin.
  • Preheat the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Beat butter and sugar in a bowl till light and fluffy. Make sure to beat in one direction.
  • Separate the egg whites and yolks.
  • Beat the egg whites with a hand-mixer until stiff peaks are formed.
  • Beat well the egg yolks with vanilla essence.
  • Add the beaten egg yolk to the butter-sugar and mix well. Do not allow the mixture to curdle. To this, slowly fold in the beaten egg whites with a rubber spatula.
  • Instead of separating the egg whites and yolks and then beating them, you can add the whole eggs one by one, beating them well each time.
  • Add 1/2 of the sieved flour to the butter-sugar-egg mixture and fold in. Add some milk and fold slowly. Now repeat the same with the remaining flour and milk.
  • Pour this mixture into the bread tin and bake for about 1 ½ hours. Time may vary for each oven.
  • Add cherries and tutti frutti on the top.
  • Check after 1 hour. If it is browning too much, place aluminum foil on the top and cook for the remaining minutes.
  • Check if the cake is baked with a tooth pick. The cake is done if it comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and place it on a wire rack and allow it to cool.
