Tutti Frutti Cake

Print version of Tutti Frutti Cake
Tutti Frutti Cake

I am enjoying the season of cool temperatures and the kind of cooking and baking that it entails. I find myself drawn to firing up the oven more often than usual. Day before yesterday was a drizzly overcast day and I baked this simple yet interesting cake. We nibbled on it all day to find the cake disappear on the day of its preparation. If you want to bake this cake, try baking in a loaf pan and use pineapple essence which gives it a lot more flavor than vanilla essence. I used a part of the cake batter to prepare few cupcakes for Nehal’s school snack box.

    Where did you get the tutti frutti here in US? Sailu, Can you post the restaurant style veg. biryani if you know.
    Thanks for all the nice work.

    • http://www.sailusfood.com Sailaja

      I don’t live in the US, Lak. Tutti frutti is available in most food stores here in India. I heard you will find them in most Chinese stores. They are nothing but glazed papaya pieces. Will post the veg biryani sometime.

    • Vishnu

      In US grocery stores, you can easily find candied mixed fruit (cherries, pineapple etc). You can cut that and use it as an excellent replacement, infact, I like those better. Or you can find Tutti Fruiti in indian grocery stores.

    • veena

      You can find the tuti fruti mix in Walmart in the cake section. It is called fruit cake mix for about 4 dollars.

  • Neel

    Sailu,
    I have been following your website for a several months now. All the dishes I attempted turned out exceptionally well – quite heartwarming for me as I am a novice at cooking. :) . Specially the eggless cakes. Your eggless chocolate cake was the first item I made that turned out really well and that I could invite others to taste. As I enjoy eating cakes as much as baking them, can you let me know if I can substitute the eggs in this cake with a vegetarian ingedient?

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailaja

      Replace eggs with 1/2 tin of condensed milk (200 gms) and increase milk by 1/4 cup (i.e 3/4 cup milk). You can use melted butter or oil..

  • http://alaivani.com Jennifer

    Hi Sailu, you are creative. SO, you’re in India? Are ovens becoming more popular there? I thought you may find it interesting that in American culture fruit cake has a different meaning than in Indian culture. :)

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Ovens are very popular here, Jennifer. Yes, am aware of the American style fruit cake which is different from the one popular here in India.

  • Ruhi Sajjad

    Hello andi,

    Absolutely love your recipes..but I have a completely different question. I am new to Vizag. Could you let me know where you buy most of you ingredients which are out of the ordinary….like for baking, Chinese or Italian cuisines…stuff you wouldn’t find in a kirana store or a super market? I am not able to find any.

    Thanks so much!

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      You will find them at ‘Karachiwala’ at Siripuram junction and Spencer’s Mart. Pasta including whole wheat pasta, pasta sauces, Italian seasonings – thyme, oregano, rose mary, parsely etc, Chinese sauces like green chilli sauce, chilli garlic sauce, Thai cooking sauces, noodles and seasonings for Chinese cooking. For baking, you will find castor sugar, cocoa pwd, baking pwd, icing sugar, whipping cream, vanilla essence including other flavors. If they do not have a particular ingredient, do ask for it and they will try to source it for you at Karachiwala. Frozen foods like different types of sausages, patties, sweet corn etc are also available as well as Tofu and soy milk. Hope this helps.

      • Ruhi Sajjad

        Thanks so much andi!

  • Keerthana

    Hi Sailu…

    First thing i want to say is ur r simply superb.. i have been following ur site… and have tried out few of the recipes they turned out to be good. I have got married recently and ur site helps me learn new things.. THANKS A LOT… I have one concern..can these cakes be made in microwave or cooker as we do not have a oven at home..if u could advice on this it would be helpful as i can try ur cake recipes also..

    Thank a lot…

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Your welcome, Keethana. You can try baking in a microwave convection oven. I have never baked in a microwave. Its been a while since I baked in a pressure cooker. There are a lot of requests on how to bake a cake in a cooker. I will try baking in a pressure cooker and do a post on baking in a cooker sometime soon.

      • Keerthana

        Hi Sailu

        can u tell me the details of the oven that u use. i will try and buy it…

        • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

          I use an OTG (Oven/Toaster/Grill) Murphy Richards brand.

  • http://mharorajasthanrecipes.blogspot.com/ Priya (Yallapantula) Mitharwal

    They have come out beautifully !!! Loving them :)

  • SA

    Hi Sailaja,
    Ur recipes are awesome. I’m following ur site recently for kids recipes and some other recipes and tried some.
    I was thinking that u live in US (outside India) where do u find the ingredients that are rarely available in India? Where do u live I mean city, pls ignore this Q if its personal.

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      I live in Vizag, Andhra Pradesh, SA. And more than 90 percent of the ingredients that I use are available in one or two stores here. The 10 percent ingredients I source them from outside Vizag. These days, almost everything is available here in India and not just in the metros but smaller cities as well.

      • SA

        I’m from Andhra too but live in US. Good to know that we can find almost all the ingredients there too now a days. I love ur passion for cooking, great work. Please continue to add more kids recipes and lunch box menus.
        P.S- I tried ur biryani gravy and turned out really delicious.
        Thanks

  • Mohana

    Hi Sailu garu,
    Thanks for sharing nice recipe.I love tutti fruity and this brings back my childhood memories. Going to make this cake this afternoon and let you know the result. But sometimes whenever I try to bake cake, the taste will be good but it will be uncooked at bottom. Can you please tell what could be the reason for it?

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Are you sure you are using the bake mode and not the broil mode of your oven? Also make sure the baking pan is placed on a lower rack so that the heat is disbursed evenly.

      • Mohana

        Thanks a lot Sailu garu. I always use bake mode but need to try keeping the baking pan in lower rack. Sometimes in the middle of cake, it looks uncooked. Can you please suggest what could go wrong?

  • http://www.foodfor7stagesoflife.com Food for 7 Stages of Life

    This is one of my favorite cakes. I love them in ice cream too.

  • Lak

    Thanks every one for sharing the info! Sailu, my native place is Vizag. I am fond of that place. Will try to meet you some time.

  • http://Kavya'sKitchen Kavya

    One of my favorite Cake Sailu….Thanks for the recipe…have been searching for it from many days..I wanted to bake a fruit cake today but not happy wid it as I’m looking for a similar kind as urs….I just poped it in the oven and waiting to taste it…

  • chitra

    Dear Sailu,

    What I like most about your site is you are very clear in your recipes and for questions which are asked, your answers are immediately forthcoming. I’m loving it.

    God bless

  • Padmapriya

    Hi Sailu,

    I like your recipes, they are superb. I have general query, whether baking soda and cooking soda (what we use for preparing aappam) are same?

    Regards
    Padmapriya

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Yes, they are both one and the same.

  • Mohana

    Hello Sailu garu,I tried to bake the cake the same way as you said and it turned out great. Thanks a lot!!!!

  • Archana

    Hello Sailu Ji,
    Ur recipes are simply superb.I have tried many of them and they turn out to be really good.
    I have one question…Can I use a Convection Oven for baking cakes nd cookies?Will they be as good as the ones baked using an OTG?

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Thank you for your kind words. Yes, you can use Convection Oven to bake cakes and cookies. I have not used a convection oven. But OTG would be the best bet for baking.

  • vani

    Hi sailu,
    I am also following your website. After marriage this was a god’s gift to me.Thanku so much sailu. Now i am also cooking with so much confident.I have one Q.please tell me which cup your using.

  • Ashwini

    Hi Sailu, I thoroughly enjoy your website and have tried quite a few of your recipes; each one has turned out awesomely well. I have been trying to bake cakes off late, but have not had as much luck. I was wanting to know what is the kind of oven you use? On 2 occasions when I tried to bake a cake, although the skewer came out clean, the cake had a raw taste. Can you tell me what kind of oven you use? Am not a big fan of microwave cooking, so I don’t have one.

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      I use an OTG (Oven/Toast/Grill) for all my baking.

  • savita

    Hi I wanted to know 2 cups of all purpose flour means 200 gms or 400 gms. i actually wanted to know 1 cup means 100 gms or 200 gms cos i read this in many recipes but dont know what to use.

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      1 cup of flour is approx 140 gms.

  • kavya

    Sailu Garu

    I love your site. Your way of recipe explanation is very very good. Recently i have bought MW Convection. I would like to bake this tutty frutty cake. In this cake recipe you have mentioned Baking soda as one of the ingredients. As i am new to baking i could not found this ingredient in the market. I searched this baking soda in all leading departmental stores. They all are showing me cooking soda and says this is also same.

    Is baking soda and cooking soda both are same?
    Can i use cooking soda which normally we use for bajjis as baking soda?

    Please sailu garu kindly guide me on this.

    with thanks in advance

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Yes, cooking soda is referred to baking soda. I’m glad you enjoy my blog.

  • Kavya

  • Amu

    Hi Sailu,

    Thank you for the recipe.It looks delicious. I am a regular follower of your blog and I love it.
    I usually try to bake this kind of cake and all the fruit pieces go to the bottom and settle.I actually try to coat the fruit pieces with flour before adding them to the batter but still they go to the bottom. Is there any tip for this.
    Also glad to know that you are from Vizag too. I am from Vizag too and I love that place.Currently I am staying in US and I am coming to Vizag this January after a period of 4 years and all excited about it.

    thanks you again Sailu..

  • Yamuna

    Hi Sailu,
    I prepared your cake today.It was very soft and came out well.But the smell of the egg was dominating.I followed the same measurements as yours.Can you please let me know the reason.

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Increase the amount of essence the next time you prepare the cake.

      • yamuna

        Hi Sailu,
        Thanks a lot for your reply.I will sure try this cake again and let you know.

    Hi Sailaja,

    Thanks for the recipe i tried your recipe and it worked out. I live in US and I made it with Fruit cake mix from walmart. The tutti frutti cup cakes just tasted yummy.

  • mangal

    Hi Sailu,
    I tried the cake,replaced the butter with oil but kept all other ingredients same…it turned out well…though it was a little crusty on top it was delicious.Will surely try out a few more cakes from your recipes.
    Thanks

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Well, if the crust is get darker and crusty, you can remove the pan half way through and place aluminum foil on top and continue with the baking process.

  • Neethu

  • Sudha

    Hello there !!

    Tried making only cupcakes with all the same ingredients but exact half of what you have mentioned (like 1 cup flour, 1 egg, 1/4th cup milk etc) .. Taste was good, but my cupcakes fell flat, they did not puff up…The rest i did exactly like you mentioned… Could you suggest where i might have gone wrong..?

    • Sudha

      Okie, so after 5 months, ( and also because of no reply yet :-( … ) i tried again, with the same half of all ingredients ( just like mentioned above ), but this time in a loaf pan … Yet again, the center of the cake did not puff up and fell little lower than flat … So WHERE AM I GOING WRONG .. :-( ….? Can anyone help pls !!

      • Anonymous

        Sorry for the delay in my reply. Didn’t see you comment until today. There are a number of reasons you cake falls. You have to pre-heat the oven for 15 mts before baking the cake. Use eggs and butter at room temperature and not when they are cold. Do NOT overbeat the batter. Increase butter by a tbsp and decrease sugar by 3 tbsps and reduce baking pwd by a tsp. Try these changes. Hope this helps.

    Can you please let me know as where would i have gone wrong?

  • Namitamakhija

    I tried this one exactly as you mentioned but the tutti frutti’s are tasting aweful :( The cake itself is tasting pretty decent but the candied peel is tasting like medicine and ruined the cake. I got the tutti frutti(candied peel) from WalMart. Any idea what could have gone wrong? where do u buy tutti frutti from?

      I have never baking in a MW. If baking in a MW, bake it in convection mode. OTG is best for baking.
