Christmas cake

Christmas is just around the corner and what else could be the best way to celebrate than having Christmas cake! This weekend my house turned into a bake house as I baked the Christmas cake using tutti frutti. I doubled the joy of baking cake by sharing it with my friends and they just loved it. You can do the same, how? Let’s see the recipe below.

  • Eggs 2
  • Refined flour 1 cup
  • Melted butter 1/2 cup
  • Oil 1/2 cup

Method:

First sieve the flour with baking soda and baking powder and keep aside.

In a bowl, whisk the butter and sugar.

Add oil now whisk the batter.

Add the eggs to it and whisk.

Add the flour to the batter and fold the flour gently.

Add vanilla and tutti frutti to the batter and mix everything well.

Preheat the oven on 120 degrees.

Pour the cake batter in the cake tray (ensure you lay the butter paper before pouring the batter)

Bake the cake on 120 degree for 20 mins.

Baking time depends on the kind of oven you are using.

Keep checking the cake in between.

Once the cake is baked take it out from the oven and let it cool down on room temperature.

Serve the cake with evening tea or have it just like that 🙂

Chocolate walnut cake

Baking is a tricky affair. It requires a lot of patience and practice. Also the success of your cake depends on the kind of oven you are using. I have been practising a lot of baking cakes and pies since quite some time and that’s the reason I could not post any recipes here. But today I baked Chocolate walnut cake and it really came out well. So I’m sharing the recipe with all of you here. Hope you will give it a try too!
