Tutti Frutti Loaf Cake with Whole Wheat
I am really excited to share my new recipe using Pillsbury Atta (Whole Wheat). I totally replaced All purpose flour to make this tutti frutti loaf cake for my little one…
From the last two days, Arya is asking me for a cake. I couldn’t make time myself to bake since I was busy with other chores. Today I decided to bake something for ARYA which is more nutritious and healthy. Hence I also can say this to you that it is my first ever trail on using Atta (Whole Wheat) flour. I am loving very much to experiment in my kitchen and finally I would like to give my family the healthy food. There are so many food/bake bloggers, who are giving us so much variety of recipe’s and I’m inspired to use their methods but totally trying out different ingredients and also creating my own recipe’s. I really hope you like my small effort of giving you healthy recipe ideas for your better health. With high spirits, here I’m sharing my improvised version of loaf cake from couple of blogs.
1 1/2 Cups Pillsbury Atta (Whole Wheat)
1 tsp Fresh Cinnamon Powder
2 tsp Baking Soda
a pinch of Salt
1 cup Tutti Frutti (Or you can add nuts, dry fruit slices, which you will get in any grocery store)
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (You can use Vegetable Oil or Melted Butter)
2 Cups Sugar
3 tbsp Yogurt (I used homemade yogurt)
1/2 Cup Water
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Distilled White Vinegar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Move the lower rack in the oven to the middle and preheat it to 350F.
In a bowl, add Atta, Baking Soda, Cinnamon Powder and Salt and whisk everything. Then Add Tuttifrutti and whisk all together so that those TF’s are coated well with the above mixed powder and keep it aside.
Take a small bowl and pour that olive oil and then add Sugar and whisk it together so that the sugar lightly dissolved in the oil. (You will see the olive oil is absorbed my sugar and it will be little thick)
Take another bowl and in this add the Yogurt and water and whisk it so well. Then add Baking powder and Vinegar and whisk it so that it slowly forms a frothy white liquid and add the Vanilla extract.
Now in that Atta mixture, add the Sugar+oil mixture and Frothy Yogurt mixture and with the spatula mix everything slowly so that that the dry mixtures incorporate well in that liquid mixtures.
After everything is well mixed pour the batter into a loaf cake pan and put it in the Oven and bake it for 40 Minutes.
Let cake cool down and slowly remove from the pan and cool it for some time and have it sumptuously. Yum Yum…
I love those crumbs…
Few Observations I encountered in this process of baking:
1. Whole Wheat texture is little rough that the All purpose flour hence make sure you add some water to the batter if it comes really stiff. Because the rough texture makes your cake more hard.
2. Do not believe that using Olive Oil will change the taste of the cake. It is really yummy with Olive Oil. Sometimes you try baking with Olive Oil.:-)
3. If your Tutti Frutti are more sweetened then cut down on adding more sugar. Those TuFu’s will give that sweet taste anyways. In my recipe I didnt add much sugar and when you are eating you will enjoy the taste. trust me.
Anybody??? If you are going to try this, please write to me. +ve or -ve. I will be waiting to hear from you. 🙂With Love, ♥Prashanthi♥
