A wish and a cake ~*Tutti Frutti Steamed Cake*~

Wishing all the wonderful women out there "A Happy Woman's day".
I dedicate this post to the most beautiful women in life "OUR MOMS"...
May the good lord bless each one of us with love and all pleasures...
So hope all you guys had a blast on this day as this is the day where all women
around the world will be pampered. I asked my huss wat was my gift and he went on to tell "Why do you need a gift when you are always special to me?" Grrrrrr went I. And then he promised me to take me shopping today evening. As I am totally into cooking, baking and clicking these days he asked me to choose my own gift... Yayyyyyyyyyyy went I.

So now onto the recipe. This cake goes for a victory, a wish and a dedication.

Baking cakes in my oven with a slightest wish that the cake would come out soft and spongy just as I see in fellow blogger posts has become a routine for me. But every attempt turned out to be a failure. Then I came across a blog which said "Steamed cake" and I got my answer. So turned away from the MW and towards my loyal pressure cooker and the end result the cake was soft and too good...
Huss and me loved the texture and gobbled down the entire lot...

So off to the recipe...

~* Ingredients *~
All purpose flour - 1 cup / 100 gms

Sugar - 3/4 cup / 75 gms

Butter - 1 stick

Milk - 1 cup

Egg - 1

Baking powder - 1 tsp
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp

Vanilla essence - 1 1/2 tsp

Tutti Frutti - 1/2 cup

The Making:
Sieve flour, baking powder and baking soda thrice.
Combine butter and sugar with an electric mixer till creamy
Then add the egg and beat well till foamy and creamy.
Add in vanilla essence and mix well.
Now add in the milk beat well till all is combined.
Next add the flour, baking powder, soda mixture.
Finally fold in tutti frutti's , mix gently, do not overmix. Pour the batter into a greased pan and pat it on floor to ensure the batter is even on all sides of the loaf.

Set up a steamer and place the pan without touching the water. Steam till done (approx 30 mins) / till a inserted skewer comes out clean.

In case of ovens, preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. for 35-40 mins until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.

Remove from steamer / oven, cool completely and then slice.
