Eggless Dry Fruits and Nuts Cake

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.


  • All purpose flour – 1½ cupEggless_Dry_Fruits_Nuts_Cake_2
  • Corn flour – 2 table spoon
  • Powdered sugar – ¾ cup (adjust as per the sweetness of dry fruits used)
  • Unsalted butter – ½ cup
  • Warm milk – 1 to 1¼ cup
  • Dry fruits
    • Raisins – handful
    • Dried figs – 12 no
    • Date – 8 to 10 no
  • Nuts
    • Cashew nut – ¼ cup Eggless_Dry_Fruits_Nuts_Cake_3
    • Pistachio – ¼ cup
    • Almond – 10 to 15 no
  • Cherry – 10 no
  • Tooti fruity – 3 table spoon
  • Powdered spices – 1 table spoon (clove, cinnamon and cardamom mixed together equally)
  • Baking powder – 1½ tea spoon
  • Baking soda – 1 tea spoon
  • Salt – pinch


  • Cake mix: Chop nuts into small pieces; chop fig, dates and cherry into small pieces.

  • Baking: Grease a cake tin; spread some dry fruits in the bottom (I used cherry and some tutti fruiti); put the cake-mix, level it.

  • Bake it at 160 degree Celsius for 60 minutes.

  • Cool it fully and invert it. Now colourful Eggless Dry Fruits and Nuts Cake is ready.


  • Here are some cutaway sections of the cake.

  • 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.

    Your recipe sounds great. Mam can we use aluminium tray in microwave oven.

  • Kamala January 31, 2011, 5:47 pm

    @ Shriannalakshmi
    No metallic tray or foils including aluminium tray/foil is to be used in oven in microwave mode. You can use aluminium tray or foil in convection/grill mode without using microwave. You may refer the user manual provided with your microwave oven for more details.
