Whenever I bake at home it's something that has cocoa powder in it, like a brownie or a chocolate cake, as my daughter loves anything with chocolate. I had bought this tutti frutti on my last visit to the Indian store and was figuring out what to do with it, I had written down this recipe some time back and I made a few changes to make an eggless version. The cake turned out very moist and a little dense since I had replaced half the maida with whole wheat flour, but it was very good..

NoteThe original recipe had used an egg instead of the milk and almost 8 tablespoons of butter.
I forgot to dust the tutti frutti pieces with flour, so it sunk to the bottom, and I would reduce the sugar to 3/4 th cup, as we like our cakes a little less sweet.
