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.
Though my eggless vanilla cupcakes would have been a perfect match for this occasion, 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 beautifully moist cake flecked with candied fruits and made with just a handful of ingredients. This cake will surely please almost anyone.
So what is special about this cake!
This is my go-to recipe for eggless cakes! My first memories of baking this cake date 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.
How to Make a Vegan Tutti Frutti cake?
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.
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.
