Eggless tutti frutti cake recipe - Learn how to make soft sponge cake with tutti frutti in it.
This post is very special for me, coz this is the first cake recipe I am posting🎉.
My mom, MIL (also my ancestors)have never baked anything, also they don’t even know the ABCs of baking.
So for me to I am just blank about baking. Last year by this time,I have not even dreamt of baking a cake😵!
But now I find baking very interesting and even easier than my day to day cooking 😎!
I too was once thinking baking is something I cant even imagine,its a very difficult thing to try.
But now I got enough confidence to even encourage someone who is scared of baking like I was once😏!
But I should really thank Prathiba🤗,for clearing all my silly doubts, regarding baking, whenever I asked her in the beginning!
I took the recipe from here, with few changes I tried and was keeping my fingers crossed😅 until I had a bite from the cake. It was damn good!
My oven is a combination oven,which has three options- Convection/Microwave/grill.
Basically I use the microwave option in everyday cooking. And the convection mode for baking cakes,cookies and pizzas.
Still I haven't used the grill option. I don’t even have the manual for this oven, somehow just learnt the basics from online and managing to bake.
Please feel free to write to me or leave comments,if you have any doubts regarding baking this cake, I will try my best of my knowledge to answer you what ever I know.
Mix all purpose flour, corn flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt well, in a large bowl.
I sift the flour to ensure even mixing.
Beat softened butter with sugar (I used fine grain sugar) in another bowl.
Add the egg replacer, condensed milk and vanilla to the beaten butter & sugar and beat again till smooth. (I used a hand whisk)
Add this to the mixed flour and mix well.
After that, add the soda water and mix well. (fold well, folding-mix with a spatula/ ladle in a same pattern, preferably from bottom to top always)
Meanwhile preheat the oven to 180 degree C.
Lastly add the tutti fruity and mix well.
Grease a baking tray with butter/oil (I used 6 inch round tray) and pour the mix in to the tray.
Bake for 35 minutes(keep in centre of the oven) or until the cake is done, you can check by inserting a knife.
If it comes out without sticking, clean then your cake is done!
After done,cool down in a wire rack and slice it and enjoy!

Eggless tutti frutti cake recipe
- 1.5 cups All purpose flour
- 3 tablespoon Corn flour
- ¼ cup Tutti frutti
- 100 gm Butter
- 4 tablespoon Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Baking powder
- ½ teaspoon Baking soda
- ½ cup Condensed milk
- ⅓ cup Plain soda
- ¼ teaspoon Salt
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla essence
Egg Replacer - Whisk together
- 2 tablespoon Water
- ½ teaspoon Baking powder
- 2 teaspoon oil
- Mix all purpose flour, corn flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt well, in a large bowl.
- I sift the flour to ensure even mixing.
- Beat softened butter with sugar (I used fine grain sugar) in another bowl.
- Add the egg replacer, condensed milk and vanilla to the beaten butter & sugar and beat again till smooth. (I used a hand whisk)
- Add this to the mixed flour and mix well.
- After that, add the soda water and mix well. (fold well, folding-mix with a spatula/ ladle in a same pattern, preferably from bottom to top always)
- Meanwhile preheat the oven to 180 degree C.
- Lastly add the tutti fruity and mix well.
- Grease a baking tray with butter/oil (I used 6 inch round tray) and pour the mix in to the tray.
- Bake for 35 minutes(keep in centre of the oven) or until the cake is done, you can check by inserting a knife.
- If it comes out without sticking, clean then your cake is done!
- My cake was bit crumbly. I think there should be some proportion imbalance between wet and dry ingredients or over mixing.
- Because of this, the outer layer of the cake was crisp and slightly hard. Keep it for a day and it will soften by itself!
- It stays good for 3 days at room temperature.
- You can use bread pan to bake or your preferred shape pan for this cake.
- You can omit the tutti fruity and bake it, it's the basic eggless sponge cake.
- I used condensed milk, but as the original recipe calls for evaporated milk, so you can try that too increasing the sugar quantity…Please refer the link for the original recipe.

What a lovely cake. It's amazing you were able to get these results on your first try. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary
I was saerching for a gud eggless cake for my friend.thanks.I gonna try this tommorrow itself.
Priya Soda water is plain soda/club soda... carbonated water you can say,its not sweet but very bit salty!
Wow, that indeed great looking cake...too good.:)
What type of oil we need to use for baking? Groundnut oil can be used or coconut oil or olive oil
Use Sunflower oil best. Coconut oil is next best option. Make sure to use a good quality one.
thanks a lot for the help, madam...Am definitely going to try it. For a pure veg like me, eggless cakes are always welcome..:)
lOOKS so yummy. mouth watering recipe!!
Awesome and delectable cake..pics looks so great!!
the blogger formerly known as sansmerci
great work for first time! now m really motivated to try my first time!
Hi, my name is Letchumi from Perak Malaysia, . I love baking and tried the tutti fruity vegetarian cake today, it was awesome, really taste good. thanks so much for sharing.
Who will say that you baked it 1st time after seeing the final outcome? It's fantastic... Very tempting clicks
Dear just shared few awards with you. please accept those...
Wow Your first cake itself looks great!!
I tried getting the soda water in an Indian store, but they had only the sweetened soda water, Limca.
So, can u pls tell me the brand that u bought and what is it called?...Also, are there any alternatives for the soda water?
Priya I bought a brand called Schweppes,you can see in the first step picture....sure you can find in supermarkets,try and see,ask as club soda...
This method I am not sure though,
Alternative for soda water you can try eno fruit salt(not the flavored) mixed with water,make sure u just mix it only when needed!

Love tutty fruity cakes and icecreams too. I have to add this to my wish list for India visit.
lovely cake, for a first time baker, and beautiful clicks too!!
Hello, Cake looks lovely!
I have a question..in ingredients there is corn flour..is it like flour of corn(corn meal) or corn starch(something like arrowroot). I am doubtful because in India corn starch is also sometimes called corn flour..and I have never used corn flour in cakes only corn starch at times.
Thanks in advance.
Hi Namrata,its not corn meal,its corn starch(it will be white in colour),not the yellow one..Hope this had cleared your doubt!
Thanks for replying. Was wondering what temperature should be used..will 350 F be fine?
Yes 350 F will be fine,I baked at 180 degree C... I had wrongly put 180 F its 180 C,I jus noticed,Thanks 🙂
Wow!!!!!Cake looking wonderful!!!
I'm amongst one of them who is scared of baking. never tried baking....
but really want to.
I'm having LG micro combi model (micro, grill & combi). Can it be used for baking? if yes, what temp. should i set for baking?
My MIL has the same model as you have,but I am so sorry you cant bake this cake in that mode. only if your oven has the covec mode,you can bake...This combi mode is the combination of microwave and grill mode.
Your cake is too awesome n mouth watering once we look it.In ur receipe u've mentioned egg replacer,wat is that egg replacer n also tel me wether we will be able to do in a cooker because im not having microwave oven.
Hi sudha,egg replacer is nothing but the things we add in the place of egg,people who donot eat egg can use this proportion I have mentioned in any cake recipes. I found it in another blog...And this cake cannot be done in microwave or pressure cooker...only in a microwave oven with convection mode in it,you can make it. Otherwise you can make it in an OTG. I will soon post an eggless chocolate cake which you can try steaming. So stay tuned 🙂
actually i am confused about the time to be set for preheating the oven ana what time should be set after keeping the cake mixture inside te oven(my one is cornella electric oven)
Hi , You should pre heat the oven to 180 degree C also bake at the same temperature. For any baking,preheat temperature and baking temperature is same(as far as I know)
Usually if you set the temperature and start preheating,the oven will automatically set the time and stop/ gives a beep sounds after the preheat is done. Hope this helps..
the cake came out very well, it was my first cake
thank u very much
Hi, could you please tell your 1 tsp equals to how many ml? and similarly one tblsp to ml?
1 tsp = 5 ml,1 tblsp = 15 ml
should I bake it in high power mode or less? what was the exact power mode you used?
There is no such power setting in the convection mode,high or low power mode is only for micro wave(in my oven). Otherwise only you have to set 180 degrees in the convection mode.
your 1 cup equals to?
the cake looks great.if we want to add eggs how many eggs should we add?why we need to add soda water..when we r adding baking soda?is it good to make with egg or without egg?i will try this recipe....
I'm planning to try this.Please help me whether the oven should be set to heat from all the sides?(from top,bottom,sides)??
I am so sorry. I have no idea about the oven heating process in ur model. May be I will ask my friends and get back to you...
My Oven is of SONA company.I brought it in Courts.
Hey...looks awesome... should try it sooner.....i would like to know where you got the sift. I have been hunting since long and unable to find one. Please lemme know....
I got this sift in IKEA
can i use electric hand mixer for beating
I baked this cake today and it came out really well. In fact, I used the exact measurements and it did not crumble at all.
But I have a very basic doubt. When I baked the cake (or the last time when I baked the vanilla cake) the top kind of bubbled out. Now if I wanted to frost the cake, how is it done? Do we just cut off the top part to get it flat?
Varsha aka Rain
Have done this cake 3 times now. and it has come out well all the times. It is a hit at our home. Thanks for the receipe 🙂
when and how to use egg replacer
Please read step 4
all the three items of egg replacer have to mix first or not.i have ifb 30sc2 model of microwave but all time i tried cake in it not results good.it doesnot cook at the bottom and gets over cooked at top.plz tell me wht to do
You bake in Microwave mode?
ur cske is vry nicely baked i hope i will try and also get the same result .plz tell me i have a bowl which has one cup capacity in it so wht will be the proportion of all ingredients
all items of egg replacer are to mix first or they are used one by one
no not in micro mode but in convection mode.in micro mode it results good but in convection mode it is always a flop.also tell me whn u bake cake would u cover it or not which type of baking bowl do u use
Mamta, Middle rack should be fine to bake.Sorry for the late response...
This egg replacer ingredients should be mixed first and added to the flour. And its always better to buy measuring cups to do baking. It will be handy. Or if you have kitchen scale, it could help. Or buy pyrex glass measuring cup, which has all cup measurements marked in it. Hope this helps....
i said i have small baking dish which can have only one cup batter in it.since ur recipe shows 1 and half cul maida so how can i get 1 cup maida+cornflour proportions for all ingredients.plz tell me shall i cover the cake dish while baking or not.if yes than with wht thing should i cover it.
Hi Ekta, you can half the measurements. Say for 1 & 1/2 cup flour you can use 3/4 cup and so on. Just bake this cake using half the measurements.
plz tell me shold i cover the cake or not and wht type of baking dish shud i use borosil or aluminium dish
Hi ekta, You can cover the cake whiel baking to get it evenly baked without a burnt top. Use butter paper for that. And I would suggest the aluminium dish the best.
and thanks vry much for ur sugestion hope it will work great for me
can i use aluminium foil in microwave convection mode while baking a cake to cover it.
I think butter paper will be perfect for it. Aluminium foil not sure...
Hi your cake looks really yummy and delicious. Nice one. I have a small doubt can you clarify it. Ive also bake tutty fruity cake but with a readymade cake mix. It turned out well but all the tutty fruity stuck to the base of the cake everytime i bake. I mixed it well before baking but still it happens everytime, so can you tell me what should be done to make it in between the cake?
Try greasing the pan first with butter and then sprinkle some flour,say one or two tsp of flour and spread evenly. Then pour the batter and try baking. After baking is done, keep the pan over wet cloth for 10 minutes to cool down and then invert the cake. Hope this will work. Let me know.
Hi thanks for your immediate response. But my question was something different. The tutti fruity doesnt stick on to the bottom of pan but on the bottom of the cake. On your cake i noticed that it was on the middle of the cake. Hope you understand. Is there any tip on this?
Oh, I dint read it properly, my bad 🙁
actually try dusting the tutti fruity before adding it to the batter.That is before adding the tutti fruity to the cake batter, add a 2 tsp of plain flour to the tutti fruity and mix so that the flour coats the tuitti fruity well. Then add it to the cake batter.
And I assume you are adding the tutti fruity at the end as mentioned in the recipe.
hi i want to know where can i get tutty fruity in US i checked with couple of stores like walmart target but i didnt get it can u pls suggest me the cake looks really yummy want to try
Hi, I read these in some forums. But discussion was on 2008, so not sure if its still there. Still you can try there and in other Indian stores. Edison patel ,sabzi mandi - these were the places they had mentioned. Check this in baking section where they keep dry fruits. If you dont get tuitty frutti, then you can also try sunmaid mixed fruits. Though it has more of raisins, you can pick tuitti fruitti bits from that.
Hi raks i just came in to thank you for the tips you had given. I tried coating the tutti fruity with the flour and it turned out well. All the tutti fruity was in its place. Thanks again.
cheers to life
Hi i have a lg microwave oven, MH2347EB is the model.
can you suggest if i can bake cakes with this!! i totally have zero knowledge on this, suggest please
I want to know if there is any other mode like combination/ grill or convection modes?
hi Raks...ur receipes are superdelicious...gud work....i 2 have a query...can v use the above mentioned egg replacer receipes for all d cake makng receipes containg egg..?
I think we should try that. I too have this in my mind for long time now. You can try. If I try, I will update.
Looks really good...could you please share the link to the original recipe as well...couldn't find it in the post.
It is there, in the word here. Any ways here is the link : http://chandrabhaga.blogspot.sg/2009/05/eggless-sponge-cake-my-first-attempt-to.html
Hii mam...i am frm chennai..luv ur blog so much...strtd folliwing it few days bak...gonna try out many many more dishes...fr d first tym tried my hand at baking...baked tutti fruity cake seein ur recepe...it cm out well but sugar was, less as I used milk instead of milkmaid...so d proportion issues may b...i hv a doubt if I hv to bake it in convection mide...i baked it in micro + convec mode...dunno if I was rite...kindly advice..
You can bake this in fully convection mode.
Loved the recipe and tried it..it came out well...had a doubt and thought of posting it...the ingredients in the egg replacer will be the same irrespective of the number of eggs is is? I mean if the recipe requires 1 egg or 8 eggs I should make the egg replacer with the same measurements?
The egg replacer is for one egg, so if it asks for two eggs, you have to double it as well.
Thanks so much !!
A long due bookmark, I prepared and posted this 🙂
Loved it :):)
Is that a tray in the picture where you've poured the batter or is it some thing else on the baking tray? If so, can you please tell me what it is and where to get it...( Im asking about the silver foil cup kind of a thing you have used)
Yes it's use and throw aluminium foil tray which can be lined over a baking tray. I got that in Singapore fair price
hey lemme know for how long we need to preheat d oven?? 10 mins or more??.. Should we bake d cake in covection mode or microwave n convection combination mode..?? too many qstns .. sorry 🙂 baking for first tym 🙂
whether it is possible to bake in solotype microwave oven
Hi...I made this tuti fruity cake n kept for 35mins n wen i removed..it was nt baked at all...i put the knife in betwen to check n it was al wet 🙁
I dont knw wat hapnd bt i had used proper ingredients in proper quantity...dont knw hw such hapnd
Did you preheated the oven? Is your oven temperature in Fahrenheit or Celsius?
Preheating should be done until the baking temperature reaches. usually the oven beeps when the temperature reaches in mine. Check you manual for preheating procedure.
hello raks you have a very simple way of explaining how the recipes have to be cooked. a small doubt is how do i measure 1/3 of a cup.
I have a cup that measure 1/3 rd. If you dont have, Take 1 cup, divide into 3 and take one part from that 3 parts.
I'm new to cooking..just now started to experience a lot of dishes from your list.don't know the basic of baking cakes,cookies or pizza.can you please help me out which is the best microwave oven to buy for all these purposes and also advise me about otg.
First thing I notice is that before starting baking we need to preheat the oven to some particular temperature is that there is any time limit to set up with the temperature or it is just to preheat the temperature alone.
Please refer FAQs page.
Hey hi .. cake.looks.really awesome n yummy ..have a question is it possible to bake cake in microwave?
Only if it has convection mode in it, you can bake
Can we use Pepsi/Coke in place of soda water?
Hi I tried it yesterday for the first time and it come out well..tks for the wonderful recipe...am very fond of tutti frutti cake...now I can prepare my favorite cake on my own..tks once again..but I have a doubt my cake is very soft and tasty...but when I cut the cake into pieces it's broken..can you pls tell what mistake I did.
Let it cool and be at room temperature for a day before you cut. This makes the outer layer soft and lets you cut easily. Dip your knife in warm water each time. This gives you neat pieces too.
Hi,can you pls post the recipe link which uses evaporated milk?
I have given the link in the introduction, but guess its not that visible
Here you go http://chandrabhaga.blogspot.com/2009/05/eggless-sponge-cake-my-first-attempt-to.html
Hai Raks..I am a beginner in baking so my doubt is that you have mentioned baking soda n soda water..what is soda water here? Pls answer my query
Soda water is plain soda (drink). Let me know if you have further doubts.
