India’s very famous Tutti frutti cake!!! It’s an egg less and melt in mouth cake which is very popular in India, from kids to elders … everyone likes it.
Tutti frutti is a colorful confection containing various chopped and usually candied fruits, or an artificially created flavoring simulating the combined flavour of many different fruits. In India Tutti frutti refers to candied papaya.
These are always small cubical pieces often brightly colored. The most common color being red, tutti-frutti are also available in rich green and yellow colors. These are used in various bakery products including cakes, milk-breads, cookies, dilkhush and buns. Tutti-frutti is also used in cold desserts as toppings for the ice-creams and sundaes. They are also used in sweet paans and sangeet (paper-masala).(courtesy:Wiki)

1)This amount of sugar is perfect for me, keep in mind that tutti frutti are also sweet. But still if you want more sweet, you can increase the amount of sugar.
2) Do not over mix the mixture.
3) As oven temperature varies by individual, one can cook 5 min extra or more than suggested time.
