Fruit Bread / Fruit Cake

I had bought some tutti fruitti container before Christmas. But since we went to India, my plans of making plum cake was kept on hold. Then y’day I wanted to bake something with my little one. Afterall she got this cute handmade valentine card for me. She has been rolling rotis alongside with me nowadays and I didn’t had to make any y’day. So I said let’s bake some cake.

Tutti fruitti cakes were always my favorite ones, besides plum cake that is. But I remember dad bringing home these fruit breads from bakery and we all jumping for it. I had no clue what fruit they were. Later I got to know they are usually made of pineapple bits or papaya bits. Interesting isn't it.

I followed this recipe from Sailus. It turned out ok. I say ok, coz the cake was little too sweet for my taste and I think next time I might reduce sugar, add pinch of salt, add ¼ cup of buttermilk and try with pineapple essence. Meanwhile my kids and hubby have started working on their cake vanishing act. J

Prep Time: 15 min. | Baking Time: 1 Hour 10 min. | Makes: 1 loaf bread

Maida/ All purpose flour – 2 cups
Baking powder – 2 tsp.
Baking soda – ½ tsp.
Granulated sugar - 1¼ cup
Melted Butter – 1 stick ( ½ cup)
Eggs – 2
Vanilla essence – 2 tsp.
Milk – ½ cup
Tutti Fruitti mix – 1 cup
cooking spray

Check out the valentine card from my lil one. :o)
Method of Preparation:

~ Preheat the oven to 350 deg. Fahrenheit. Grease the loaf tin.
~ Sprinkle some flour on tutti fruitti and coat them. This will prevent them from sticking to each other.
~ Sieve flour, baking soda and baking powder in a bowl and keep aside.
~ In another bigger bowl, cream butter and sugar together until smooth and creamy.
~ Now add one egg at a time and beat with the mixer.
~ Add essence and combine with the mix.
~ Alternate flour and milk and combine little by little, making sure there are no lumps formed.
~ Add coated fruits to the batter and fold in gently. 
~ Pour the batter into the greased pan. Bake for an hour or so, until toothpick comes out clean.
~ Take it out of oven and let it cool on wire rack for about 15 minutes.
~ Remove the cake from pan and slice using oiled knife to get a smooth cut.
