Servings: 1 pound cake, 4-5
Cooking Time: 45-50 minutes
Dry Ingredients –
- 1 1/2 whole wheat flour
- 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 pinch salt
Wet Ingredients –
- 1 cup curd/yogurt (at room temperature)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar (you can also use normal white sugar)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup oil (any refined oil can be used like peanut oil, sunflower oil, vegetable oil etc)
- 1/2 cup milk (at room temperature)
- 1/2 cup tutti fruity (candied papaya)
- 2 tbsp cashew pieces (optional)
- 1 tbsp oil for greasing the cake pan
- 1 tbsp wheat flour for dusting the cake pan
In a deep bowl take whole wheat flour and add baking powder, baking soda and salt to it. Mix all the ingredients nicely. Our dry ingredients are ready.
In another bowl take curd at room temperature and to it add brown sugar, oil and vanilla extract.
Mix all the ingredients nicely with help of a whisk till there is no lumps and it is smooth in texture. Our wet ingredients are ready. It will look like the second picture given above.
Now add the dry ingredients in the wet ingredients in batches and mix nicely. Use milk to make a smooth batter.
There should not be any lumps in the batter.
Now add tutti fruity and cashew pieces and mix it in the batter. Our cake batter is ready to be baked.
Pre heat oven for about 10 minutes at 180 degree celsius or 350 degree fahrenheit. Prepare a cake pan (you can use any cake pan of your choice,I have used a loaf cake pan) by greasing with oil and dusting with flour nicely.Pour the batter in the cake pan and tap it well. We tap the cake pan after pouring the batter so that if there is any air bubbles in the batter,it will escape.
Now bake the cake for about 30-35 minutes. After 25 minutes check the cake by inserting a clean knife or tooth pick at multiple places and if it comes out clean this means cake has been baked properly.If not then bake it more for about 5 minutes and then check it again.
When cake has been baked completely, take it out from the oven safely and let it cool for about 10 mins in the pan and then unmould it on the wire rack and let it cool completely.
Now you can cut it and serve with hot tea or coffee or as it is. This is a perfect tea cake. This cake is super delicious and trust me friends it is irresistible. You just can’t have one. Store this cake in an air tight container and it is good for 4-5 days. Do try this friends and please let me know how you like it. Enjoy !!
