Eggless_Dry_Fruits_Nuts_Cake_1 Eggless Dry Fruits and Nuts Cake is a rich cake with nuts and dry fruits. This is colorful, attractive and will be liked by all including children. I bake it occasionally. Recently one of my reader Meena asked for this cake recipe and here are the details to bake this cake.

Though there may be many methods/versions, here is my method of baking this cake. I used some 8 different varieties of dry fruits and nuts. The chopped dry fruits and nuts together is almost 2 cups. You may use dry fruits and nuts of your choice.

Tips

  • The final cake mix should be little thick, otherwise all the dry fruits and nuts will settle down to bottom and will not be evenly distributed in the cake.
  • Powdered spice – clove, cinnamon and cardamom can also be as per your choice.
