Rava, sooji or semolina tutti frutti cake is the most popular delicacy Christmas in India. It is super-healthy and a perfect sugar-free dessert.
Rava which is widely used in preparing breakfast items like rava upma, dosa, rava uttapam, and idlis can also be used along with whole wheat flour to make cakes.
The whole wheat flour gives the cake a bit crumbled texture and rava gives it a good binding. It is very simple to make and is also very tempting to the kids’ eyes.
Serves: 7-8 People
Cooking time: 1h 15 mins
- 1 Cup Fine Rava
- 1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
- 1 Cup Powdered jaggery
- 1/2 Cup Butter
- 1/2 Cup Fresh Curd
- 1 Cup Milk
- 1/2 Cup Tutti Frutti
- 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence
Tutti Frutti Cake Method:
Preheat the oven for 10 minutes on 180 degrees or alternatively, you can even use a cooker on full flame with sand or salt at the bottom. (Make sure to remove the whistle if you are using a cooker)
Take a mould and grease it well and put a parchment paper or dust it with whole wheat flour.
Now, soak the rava in milk and keep it aside for 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, take butter and jaggery powder and beat them till it becomes smooth & fluffy and later add curd.
Add soaked rava, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla essence to the butter, jaggery, and curd mixture and mix them gently. Once the batter is perfect in consistency, roll the tutti frutti in whole wheat flour and add them to the batter.
Now add the cake batter to the greased pan that you prepared at the start. You can sprinkle some tutti frutti on the top too before putting the cake in the oven or cooker.
Now, bake it for 35-40 minutes at 180 degrees for the oven and at a low flame for the cooker. After 35-40 minutes check if it is done by inserting a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean, you are good to go and if not give it some more time.
Once, the cake is done, take it out and put it on a wire rack and let it cool down completely. Do not remove it from the mould before cooling completely. Remove it after it cools down, and peel off the parchment paper.
The rava tutti frutti cake is ready to be served.
