One of the very popular Indian tea time cakes, I always reminisce about growing up in India and enjoying this cake with a cuppa along with my family. This cake is light, airy, moist and is great for beginners in baking. I have used my mom’s recipe here and substituted 1/2 cup yoghurt with eggs. Tutti Frutti is candied raw papaya which is made by cooking raw papaya bits in sugar syrup. It is then coloured and allowed to air dry for a few days. You can replace papaya with other candied fruits like raisins, glazed cherries or even nuts.
- 100 gms unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 100 gms powdered sugar
- 100 gms plain flour
- 100 gms Tutti Frutti coated in 1 tbsp plain flour (to avoid tutti frutti from sinking at the bottom)
