Eggless Tutti Fruity Cake in Microwave


The holiday season is upon us as we are getting ready to celebrate Christmas and the New Year!! So to enjoy the holiday season I decided to start by baking a cake. Not having an oven has never really stopped me from baking cookies, cakes and scones. While there were some disasters initially, I soon learnt the number of minutes for each recipe and now everything is good.

Here is the recipe for the cake:

Ingredients

Plain Flour - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Banana - 1
Tutti Fruity a.k.a Papaya Preserves - 1/2 cup
Milk - 1/4 cup
Butter or Oil - 1/4 cup
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
Baking Powder - 1 tsp

Preparation


In bowl, mix the wet ingredients namely banana, butter/oil and vanilla essence. Whisk well. Add flour, sugar, tutti fruity and baking powder. Mix well. Add milk and mix well.

Prepare the cake pan by applying butter/oil on all sides. Pour the cake batter. Spread evenly. Bake at Medium for 10 minutes and then on High for 1 minute. (The minutes may vary depending upon the microwave output. Keep in medium for 8 minutes and depending upon the result keep it for another 2 minutes). Allow a standing time of 3 minutes. The cake is ready when a knife comes out clean after inserting into the baked cake.

Eggless Tutti Fruity Cake is ready and Yummy!!!

This recipe is going to Vandana’s Baking for Beginners, Purva's Christmas Feast Event and JZ’s Santa’s Holiday Challenge.

This is an interesting recipe specially because you have not used cream for binding. I think it is the banana that holds the batter together. Good recipe to try when my MIL comes over (she doesn't eat eggs) ;-)

I thought I'd share some microwave cautionaries... I know it's super convenient, but it's just better to use an oven. http://spilledingredients.com/2010/02/microwaves-full-circle/

Thanks for your post. Happy Baking!
