Tutti Frutti Cake

Ingredients

All purpose flour/Maida - 1 cup

Baking powder - 1/2 tsp

Baking soda -1/2 tsp

Butter -100 grams

Sugar -1/2 cup + 1 1/2 tbsp (granulated white sugar)

Eggs -2

Tutti frutti -1/4 cup heaped

Orange juice - 3 tbsp (I used fresh juice)

Vanilla essence or Orange essence -1 tsp

Preparation

1.Preheat the oven at 180 degree C for 15 minutes.Bring all the ingredients to room temperature.Sieve together maida, baking powder and baking soda twice. Keep it aside.

2.Powder the sugar.Dust or mix tutti frutti with a little maida. This is done so that the tutti frutti does not go and settle at the bottom of the cake.Grease the baking tray with a little butter and dust flour/maida. If you are going to make cupcakes, grease and dust the cupcake moulds or line the cupcake moulds with cupcake liners.

3.Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Then add eggs and beat nicely.Now add half of maida and fold gently. Then add orange juice, rest of the maida, essence and the tutti frutti dusted with flour. Fold gently until well combined. Our cake batter is ready.

4.Pour the batter in a baking tray or cupcake moulds and tap the tray gently, so that the batter will spread evenly. Bake in a preheated oven for 25-30 minutes (180 degree C) or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
