Tutti Frutti Cupcake - Eggless Butterless Cake Recipes

Tutti Frutti Cupcake Recipe
I have already posted a handful of tutti frutti cake recipes but wanted to try a tutti frutti cupcake / muffin to post it here and was looking for recipes.I got a pack of cupcake liners last time we went to Cochin but it is too small to fit in my muffin pan so suddenly thought of a quick idea to use my tart pans to use those mini cupcake liners.I bookmarked this recipe as I knew it would win for sure as it had curd in it as egg replacer and I have had all successful cakes with curd in it. The cupcakes were so soft and moist, I shared it with my neighbor and a friend and have got good appreciations for it that I am planning to bake another batch again to share it with another friend here.

See how soft and spongy it looks, It came out so neatly from the liner as you can see.It tastes great after cooling down. But I couldn't wait to see the texture so had one when it was still warm and I couldn't stop with one:)

Tutti Frutti Cupcake Recipe

My Notes:

  • My cupcake liners were too small for my muffin pan so I lined them in my tart moulds.
  • The batter is not advisable to rest, just mix and bake it immediately.So plan it accordingly such that  you bake the entire batter in a single batch.
  • You can add any chopped nuts of your choice.
  • You can try the same recipe as cake.
  • I halved the recipe and got 12 small cupcakes.
  • I used homemade yogurt.
  • Use active baking soda which shows by foaming up immediately when you add it to curd.

  3. Thank you Sharmi for such a lovely timely cakes. More than cakes your photographs talking to us..... Mouthwatering .... soft texture is explained in the photo itself. I loved them and I tried immediately,they came out so softy and tasty. More than nuts Tutti Frutti is so colourful and attractive. Small doubt - 1. If I want to make this as a normal big cake, how to count the measure? 2. Shall we try this with fresh strawberrys? Now season started and here in Bangalore we are getting juicy fresh strawberrys everywhere. 3. I am asking with you for a long time, pl tell me how to make the icing decoration on top of these cakes? Something like creamy and designer one - have the piping cone and the nozzles but don't know to make the cream. Please help me Sharmi.

    1. Yes you can make it as a cake but the measure depends on the cake tin, if you are using a bread loaf tin then double the measure which is the orginal recipe.I will surely try and post icing decoration soon, dono when but sure to post it someday atleast :)

  9. This is a problem i often face plz help me with it. I usually need to bake around 30 cup cakes/muffins whenever there are friends over for meals. I have a muffin tray that can make 6 muffins at once, and i always distress over what to do with the batter while 1 batch is baking. Letting it rest for too long will spoil the cup cakes. Is it ok to add the rising and leavening agents in the end evrytime I bake a new batch?

    1. I have the same pblm as my oven is small and a 6 muffin tray only fits in.....I always keep the batter outside while the first batch is baking.....yes but for 20mins its ok to rest the batter but not more than that...The only way is to mix the batter while the first batch is baking else buy a bigger tray

  15. Hi Sharmi,

    These came out very well thankyou so much.
    I do have one doubt though
    Mine always come out a little sticky from the inside
    In other words they come out Not as porous or spongy from inside
    Do you know what could be the reason ?
    Is it related to beating the batter ?
    I am a little worried of overbeating the batter because that ends up flattening the cake
    Coul you please help me if you have faced this issue at some point in time ?

    1. Stickiness may be due to uncooked batter

    1. Use normal cooking oil which has no flavour.
