Fruit N Nut cake was the cake which I made for akshara’s sixth month completion. This cake cutting was done by her, as she holds the plastic cake cutting knife and posed for photos. It was so much fun on the day.
For the letter F, I choose to make fruit cake – dry fruits- tutti frutti , black raisin and apple sauce is used as I made eggless. For the nuts, I used cashew nuts, almonds.
The cake was so colorful of the tutti fruit used , everyone liked the taste. My cousins and aunts were present on that day.
All purpose flour - 1½ cup
Wheat flour – 1 cup
Brown Sugar – 1 ½ cup
Sauce from one whole apple
Tutti-fruit – 1 cup
Black raisins – few
Baking powder – 1 tsp
Salt – a pinch
Milk – ½ cup
Shift the flour, baking powder and salt thrice.
Sprinkle a spoon of flour on the dry fruits and coat the flour on all sides.
In a bowl, mix together the apple sauce and sugar well.
To this add half of the milk and mix well.
Now, add the flour in three batches and mix in one direction.
If needed add the remaining milk too.
Add the dry fruits and mix once.
Preheat the oven to 220 * C.
Pour the batter into mould and bake in the oven @ 220* for 20 minutes followed by @180* for 10 minutes.
Take out off the oven and let it cool.
As the cake looked so colorful, I didn’t do any icing or decorations.
Fruit N Nut cake is ready to serve.
