Eggless Fruit and Nuts Cake/Fruit and Nuts Snack Cake



For this week Bake-A-Thon,I am sharing a simple,eggless snack cake with nuts and tutty frutty.I have already shared a version of tutty frutty cake.But this version I tried from Pavani's blog,which I have bookmarked last year.I made this cake couple of times after she shared in it the blog but I never get a chance to click the pictures.Finally I made the cake yesterday and clicked it for the blog.
In the original recipe oil is used but here I used both oil and butter,also used the brown sugar.This cake is a perfect for kids snack box or evening snack with a cup of tea or coffee.This cake doesn't need any special preparation and its so easy to make.Off to the recipe...........

  • Now to this mixture add in the 1/3 of the sieved flour and milk alternately and mix it well.Finally add the nuts and tutty frutty,fold it well.
  • Pour the batter in the greased pan.  Keep it in the preheated oven.Bake it for 35-40 minutes(mine took 39 minutes) or until a tooth pick comes out clean.Let it rest it for couple of minutes and invert the cake to a wire rack and allow it to cool completely.Slice it.
    • Store it in an air tight container.



    • The sweetness was just perfect with 3/ cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of condensed milk,if you want the cake to be on the sweeter side add around a cup of sugar.
    • Chop the nuts finely and add it.
    • Slice the cake once its completely cool down.
