Milky Fruity Cake


Everyone in my family loves mawa cakes or simple sponge cakes  rather than creamy pastries. During Christmas I has soaked some dry fruits in rum to make Plum cake and the remaining I kept the remaining  in fridge for future use and completely forgot about them. Recently while cleaning the fridge found these soaked dry fruits they had lovely aroma and immediately I craved for some rich fruity cake .

 So decided to make this simple cake . Since I did not have any mawa handy I just added instant milk powder and the results were amazing . You can add mawa for the actual mawa taste .  If you don't have rum simply use the dry fruits you have but if possible do use the soaked dry fruits as it gives a very rich yummy taste to the cake.







Ingredients :

1 n 1/2 cup .................maida ( all purpose flour )
1/2 cup......................very fine rawa ( semolina )
1 cup........................sugar
3/4 cup....................butter ( used homemade unsalted butter )
4 heaped tbsp.........milk powder ( used Nestle brand )
4 ............................eggs ( can be substituted by 1 cup paneer or tofu )
1/2 cup...................milk
1 cup...................dry fruits n nuts ( walnuts, cashews, dates, raisins, orange peels , tutty fruity )
1 tsp ......................baking powder
1/2 tsp...................mix fruit essence
1/2 tsp...................vanilla essence





Method :

In a mixer grind together maida, rawa, milk powder and baking powder .

This ensures uniform mixing baking powder and all other dry ingredients.

Now beat together butter, milk and sugar with a blender .

Gradually add eggs beating continuously.

Now add both essences and beat well.

Now add dry mixture of maida one spoon at a time and mix gently but well.

Lastly add half the dry fruits and mix genly.

Pour the batter in a greased tin and sprinkle remaining dry fruits on top.







Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.
