Recently for a religious event, a dear friend asked me to bake a simple loaf cake that is egg-free, and dairy-free. In simple terms – she asked me to bake a vegan cake.vegan tutti frutti cake

Though my eggless vanilla cupcakes would have been a perfect match for this occasion, but they are not dairy-free. So, I started thinking about a recipe that would have some kind of flavor, is simple and equally delicious!

A few hours later, this vegan tutti frutti cake came into existence. A beautiful moist cake flecked with candied fruits and made with just handful of ingredients. This cake will surely please almost anyone.vegan tutti frutti cake

So what is special about this cake!

This is my go-to recipe for eggless cakes! My first memories of baking this cake dates back to my college days. It’s a traditional cake recipe that’s –

  • made with few simple ingredients
  • has no eggs
  • made with milk and vinegar – a perfect combo that produces an ultimate moist cake. 

I have used the same recipe to bake this vegan tutti frutti cake. The only changes I did was, swapped butter for oil and milk with almond milk. Rest all the ingredients remains the same. Vegan Tutti Frutti Cake

Now onto the recipe!

To make this cake, start by mixing oil and sugar in a bowl until combined. Sift the dry ingredients and add this to the oil-sugar mix. Make a smooth batter. Once you’ve mixed up the batter, fold in the candied fruit mix or tutti frutti. 

Bake as directed. You might need to bake this cake a little more, depending on your oven. Bake until the toothpick comes out clean or until the center of the cake bounces back when pressed lightly with your finger. 

Cool the cake completely on a cooling rack or on a clean kitchen towel.Vegan Tutti Frutti Cake

Nothing beats the flavor of this homemade vegan tutti frutti cake. At that event, my friend loved this cake and it disappeared faster than I thought. Everyone just loved the soft and perfectly flavored tutti frutti cake.

    Instead of adding 2tbl cornflour i used flour itself it worked well. Also 50min baking time was long in cooking range it baked in 35min itself.

    Dear Ruchi,
    I have been following your desserts blog for a while now, mainly for eggless cakes. Out of the many I tried, this one so far was THE BEST and most DELICIOUS cake. Lots of thanks to you! I had made this for Diwali annakoot for the temple and it turned out so so so good. I was lucky to have all the ingredients at home (God’s grace). This was an awesome recipe. It was very moist yet well put together, did not crumb much or did not fall apart. Do you think i will get the same results if i had used regular milk?
    Thank you again..keep the eggless recipes coming!! God Bless you!

    • Ruchi says:

      Thanks for the wonderful feedback SBM. So glad to hear that you liked the recipe. 🙂
      Yes, you can use regular milk to make this cake. It tastes equally delicious!
      If possible share some pics, would love to see. Thanks again!

    Hi Ruchi. I’m an avid baker and love creating recipes at home. However I was at loss when I was asked to bake a vegan cake. Your recipe saved my day and its so simple and beautifully moist that I tried it again using butter and milk. This recipe is one for keeps. Thanks immensely for sharing such a great recipe.

  4. Priya says:

    Thank you Ruchi for the recipe. I was very excited ti try it but my end result was that all the tutti fruttis sank to the bottom of the cake. Can you please tell me how i can avoid this next time?

    • Ruchi says:

      Pleasure is all mine. 🙂
      For next time, toss tutti frutti in 1 teaspoon of dry flour and add it to the batter. This will prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the cake.

    So in love with this cake di! Reminds me of Britannia cake from childhood days!!

  6. Aditi dave says:

    What should be the temp of milk?
    Can we use vanilla extract insted of almond?

  7. Rajani says:

    Hi ruchi.. I am having little confusion with almond extract … is it almond paste or what … please clear my doubts.. thank you

    • Ruchi says:

      Almond extract is obtained directly from pure almonds whereas almond essence is a flavoring agent produced using artificial ingredients.
      Almond extract can be used interchangeably with vanilla extract.

  8. Aish says:

    I’m drooling over the cake, Ruchi. One of my favorite cakes ever. Just one question – where did you get the titti-fruitti from? Is it available in Indian stores here?

    • Ruchi says:

      It’s my favorite too.
      I got tutti frutti from Indian store but it’s readily available in other stores under the name – ‘Candied cake mix fruit’.

  9. Amrita says:

    I can make it in round tin in the place of loaf tin

  10. Mahima says:

    • Ruchi says:

      Mahima, my cup measurement are –
      1 cup in (Liquid measurement) is = 250 ml
      Dry measurement is 1 cup (flour) = 125 grams.
      Hope this helps.

  11. Nidhi says:

    Can vinegar be replaced with something else as I want to make for my 2 year old.

  12. Tanisha says:

    Which vinegar u used in rcp? Is it water mixed or pure vinegar?

  13. Tanisha says:

    We don’t have to mix milk n vinegar??? We hv to pour both separately in mix??? Pls help

    • Ruchi says:

      Either way is fine.
      Milk + vinegar combo is buttermilk so adding it earlier or later will make no difference to the recipe. Happy baking!

  14. Dr. Vaishali Agte says:

    I like your recipes but would like to state that we can call this recipe as vegan only if we use almond milk since normal milk is animal product.

    • Ruchi says:

      Thank you Dr. Vaishali!
      Yes I agree. Regular milk and butter are animal product.
      I have tried this recipe with oil and almond milk that’s why it’s vegan.
