  • ¾ cup Tutti frutti
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 tsp. white distilled vinegar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ½ cup white granulated sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp. almonds slivered
  • 1 tbsp. Baking powder
  • ½ cup flavorless oil e.g. corn, vegetable, canola
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract or essence
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest – 1 teaspoon
  • ¼ tsp. salt


  • Preheat oven to 375°F (or 190°C) within 10 minutes.
  • Grease with oil or butter (or spray with cooking spray) a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan and set aside.
  • Put milk into a large bowl, add the vinegar and let it be for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Incorporate the flour, baking powder, sugar salt & lemon zest into a bowl and mix well.
  • Into a small bowl, mix tutti frutti, raisins and about 1-2 tablespoons of the prepared flour mixture.
  • Mix well until every bit is coated with flour. This step actually hinders the tutti frutti into sinking into the bottom of the pan while baking the mixture.
  • Now, get your milk and vinegar mixture and check if it has curdled slightly. When you see that it has, then it’s perfect and ready.
  • Add the oil and vanilla extract and beat them well until well incorporated.
  • Using a sieve, sift your flour mixture directly into the wet mixture.
  • Beat until the ingredients are well mixed but use a spatula half-way through in order to avoid overbeating.
  • Add the tutti frutti and fold them using a spatula. Remember not to stir vigorously and let them fold gently until they are evenly distributed.
  • Pour the mixture into the loaf pan and sprinkle with slivered almonds on top.
  • Bake it for about 50-55 minutes and to confirm that it is already cooked, try the toothpick method. Insert a toothpick into the center of the loaf and if it comes out clean, then it simply means that the cake is already ready.
  • Remove cake from oven and let it cool down a bit for about 10 minutes.
  • Loose the sides of the cake using a bread knife and put in into an upside-down position onto the cooling rack. Flip it back (still on the cooling rack) and let it cool down completely.

Tips for making Tutti Frutti Cake

Cooking Tips

First and foremost, when making a Tutti Frutti Cake, the choice of candied fruit pieces can greatly influence both the flavor and appearance. For a truly memorable cake, look for high-quality tutti frutti that is uniformly chopped and contains a balanced mix of colors. The joy of biting into a piece of this cake is partly in discovering the vibrant specks of color, so spread the pieces evenly throughout the batter to ensure each slice is joyfully speckled.

Preparing the batter with care is vital for achieving the perfect texture. Creaming the butter and sugar together until the mixture is pale and fluffy lays the foundation for a light and tender cake. It’s moments like this, when the kitchen fills with the comforting aroma of butter and vanilla, that fill a baker’s heart with warmth. Invest in good-quality vanilla extract; its rich, comforting aroma could lift even the weariest of spirits.

One of the secrets to keeping the tutti frutti evenly distributed and preventing it from sinking to the bottom of the cake is to dust them lightly with flour before folding into the batter. It’s a simple trick, but it makes all the difference, much like finding pleasure in small moments can transform an entire day.

As for the baking process, patience is a virtue. A Tutti Frutti Cake requires a gentle, even heat to rise beautifully without browning too quickly. Watching the cake slowly rise and set in the oven is a practice in mindfulness, and certainly one of the quieter joys of baking. Once baked, let the cake cool in the pan for a while before transferring it to a wire rack. The anticipation of the final product is almost as sweet as the cake itself.

In terms of personal opinion, there’s something quite magical about a cake that’s as visually appealing as it is tasty. The Tutti Frutti Cake does not pretend to be the most sophisticated of desserts, nor does it need to. Its charm lies in its simplicity, its unfussy nature, and the straightforward joy it brings.

Lastly, serve the cake with a light dusting of powdered sugar or a dollop of whipped cream if you fancy, but it’s just as lovely plain, accompanied by a cup of tea or a glass of milk. It’s a cake that doesn’t need to shout to be heard; its cheerful presence is enough to uplift the spirits.

Serving Suggestions

Tutti Frutti Cake
Served with love, every slice a world of ecstatic flavors.

To enhance the enjoyment of Tutti Frutti Cake, it is advisable to consider serving options that either contrast or complement its sweet and fruity flavor profile without overshadowing its distinctive characteristics. For a refreshing contrast, the Radicchio and Parmesan Salad offer a slightly bitter note, with the sharpness of Parmesan complementing both the salad’s bitterness and the sweetness of the cake, making it a fitting appetizer. The Fluffy Greek Yogurt Pancakes create a harmonious brunch pairing, with the tangy-yet-subtle taste of the pancakes acting as a base before the sweet Tutti Frutti Cake takes center stage. A light Japanese Cucumber Summer Soup serves as a palate cleanser or starter, providing a fresh balance to the richness of the cake. If a more savory main course is preferred, the Low-Potassium Lovely Linguine offers a pasta dish that balances the cake’s sweetness with a savory umami flavor. The Air Fried Sweet and Sour Tofu, as a lighter main course, introduces a tangy and savory profile that contrasts with the Tutti Frutti Cake’s fruity notes. For a rich and umami contrast, the Hibachi Chicken and Fried Rice serve as a satisfying main dish that complements the cake. The Coriander Spiced Lime Shrimp, with its spiciness and zest, prepares the palate for the sweet candied flavors of the Tutti Frutti Cake, creating a counterpoint to its sugary profile. It is also recommended to garnish the cake with fresh whipped cream or a light glaze and additional fresh fruits like berries to echo its inherent fruitiness. Pairing the cake with a light dessert wine or aromatic tea can further elevate the dessert experience.
