Eggless Tutti Frutti Cake

Good morning to all the blog readers there!! Today I am going to share the recipe for "Eggless Tutti-frutti Cake". It is quite a simple eggless cake recipe and anyone who is a beginner in baking can bake it.
One of the core ingredients used is quite common in homes i.e. "Curd". So good part about this recipe is you don't have to rush to the market every-time you plan to make a cake. Though the cake recipe I am sharing today is eggless, but trust me, it is as soft and moist as any other cake containing egg.
I took feedback from so many family members and friends about it and no one ever complains on its tenderness and taste. If you don't have "Tutti-frutti" bits at home, you may make this cake without it or add some chopped nuts and raisins to it. The cake tastes good any ways :). You can use homemade curd also for this recipe but please make sure it is not watery. The curd should be thick.
The first tutti fruity cake I had as a kid was "Britannia" cake which used to come in loaf and cut neatly into small rectangular pieces. Kids are always attracted and fond of tutti-frutti tiny colorful bits; whether you sprinkle them over their ice creams, cake or biscuits; more is always less for them. To give this cake a little healthy twist, you can replace half the quantity of "Maida" with whole wheat flour. The delicious cake is a perfect addition to your Christmas celebrations menu or for the mothers who need to prepare something for their kids' Christmas party at school :D .

Cake Tin Used:

I have used round aluminium cake tin with diameter 6.5 inches. You can use silicon mould also.

Oil Used:

Use any oil which is tasteless & odourless. I have used sunflower oil in this recipe. You can use olive oil also.

List of Ingredients:

  • Maida (or All purpose flour)-1 & 1/2 cups
  • Sugar-3/4 cup
  • Thick Curd-1 cup
  • Oil-1/2 cup
  • Baking Powder-1 tsp
  • Baking Soda-1/2 tsp
  • Vanilla Essence-1 tsp
  • Tutti frutti bits-1/2 cup (buy here)

Steps to Prepare:

Take curd in a mixing bowl and add sugar to it. Add vanilla essence. Beat well till all the sugar dissolves completely. Keep it aside.
Sieve together dry ingredients Maida, baking powder and baking soda. Keep it aside.
Add tutti frutti bits to it. Save some of it to sprinkle on top.
Set the oven for preheating at 180 degree Celsius. Line the baking tin (buy here) with butter paper/parchment paper.
Mix together dry ingredients and tutti-frutti bits gently before adding them to the beaten curd along with oil gradually in half & half proportion. Do not add everything in one go. Fold gently for 3-4 minutes with the help of a spatula (buy here) till all ingredients are mixed properly. Please do not over mix the batter.
Transfer the cake batter to the baking tin. 
Sprinkle some tutti frutti bits on top.
Bake for 30-35 minutes at 180 degree Celsius. Take out the cake from the oven after 30 minutes and insert the toothpick in the middle. If it comes out clean then cake is ready, bring it out of oven else bake it for another 5 minutes.
After 10 minutes of cooling time, invert the cake tin on a plate. Gently tap it from the top. The cake should come out from the tin.
Peel off the butter paper carefully.
Place the cake on wire rack so that it can cool down.
Look how soft & fluffy this sponge is looking!!
Slice and Enjoy this delicious Tutti Frutti cake


  1. Can i use nuts in place of tutti frutti?

  2. Yes, you can easily replace tutti frutti bits with chopped cashews, almonds, raisins or any other nuts of you choice :)

  4. Hi Sanchiyta, this recipe is for Convection mode only. Will soon add a recipe for eggless cake in microwave. Hope that solves your query. Thanks :)

    1. I have not tried this cake in cooker yet. Thanks for your query.

  6. can i do it without oven? because i don't have oven. plz. guide me how without oven can i make?

    1. This recipe is for making in convection oven only. Will sure let you know when I post any cake recipe that can be made without oven. Thanks for your query :)

  7. HI!! Dear!!
    I have tried your recepie yesterday....my cake has risen very well but soon it goes back. and the middle part of the cake was remained uncooked....even I put it again in oven on 180 degree for another 10 minutes

    1. Thanks for your query dear. I would advice you as below:

      1. Follow the exact recipe
      2. Do not open the oven door in between baking .
      3. Sometimes ovens do not display the actual temperature (as I had experienced with an older oven of mine). I would suggest to slightly lower the temperature (say 170 or 160) and increase the baking time. Check the centre with a skewer, knife or toothpick. If it comes out clean then cake is ready else bake for some more time.
      4.Please check the ingredients once, for example the flour or baking powder used should not be very old as they tend to catch moisture with time.

  8. Even i also want receipe for microwave

    1. Sure. Will let you know as soon as I post its recipe in blog.Thanks for showing interest :)

  9. Thanks Divya for the recipe. Can you please let me know what is the tin size used? Also does it require to dust the tutti fruity with dry flour to avoid sinking to bottom. And I assume curd is not hanged, we can use normal homemade curd.

    1. Tin size used is 7" inches.Yes add the tutti fruity into dry ingredients and mix gently before adding the entire mixture to wet ingredients. You can use homemade curd provided it is not watery. The curd should be thick. Thanks for the query. Including these details in the above post also now :)

  10. r u sure about 1/2 cup of oil as mine cake feel very oily....

    1. Hello Rajeev, yes I am sure about 1/2 cup oil. If your cake feels oily, then I would suggest two things - Use odourless oil in this cake like sunflower oil/olive oil. Secondly, let the cake cool completely before consumption.

  11. Wow...easy recipe...but can u pls help with the microwave or cooker option?

  12. Mam instead of vanila base if u want to go for redvelvet to same procedure for ingrident
