LET’S TALK INGREDIENTS

The recipe uses ingredients most commonly found in our pantries that we regularly use in baking which can be easily sourced from super market and local grocery shops. Let’s go through briefly the ingredients that goes inside the cake.

● All purpose flour – The recipe uses all purpose flour (maida).
● Custard powder – I have used homemade custard powder.
● Tutti frutti – Tutti frutti is candied raw papaya which is commonly found in India and used in desserts and baking. You can use other candied fruit as per availability.
● Sugar – I have used caster sugar. Caster sugar are more fine texture than granulated sugar, which means it dissolves faster. If you’re using granulated sugar you can powder the sugar by grinding in mixie and add or dissolve them in wet ingredients and add to the dry ingredients.
● Milk – Used whole milk. Recommend to use whole milk for extra richness, taste and texture.
● Oil – I have used sunflower oil. You can use any flavorless oil. I prefer using oil than butter for a soft and moist outcome.
● Leavening agents – Both baking powder & baking soda is used in the recipe to give it the perfect amount of lift.
● Vinegar – Vinegar plays a huge role in rising. The reaction of vinegar with the baking soda release carbon dioxide, which helps cakes rise as they bake.
● Vanilla Custard Essence – This is amazing flavor from Ossoro. You need to try this one.
● Salt – A dash of salt is always good in desserts. Salt helps to balance out the sweetness too.

SUBSTITUTIONS:

● All purpose flour can be substituted with whole wheat flour (atta) or you can use the 50-50 ratio.
● Tutti frutti can be substituted with other candied fruits.
● You can use brown sugar instead of white sugar if you want a healthier option. You may also use other healthier sweeteners are jaggery or cane sugar.
● You may use butter instead of oil or any flavorless oil will work.
● To make it vegan use any plant based/dairy free milk or just even water for the liquid.
● Vinegar can be substituted with lemon juice.
● Ossoro vanilla custard essence can be substituted with ½ teaspoon regular vanilla essence or extract.

VARIATIONS:

● You can make custard chocolate chop muffins by adding chocolate chip instead of tutti frutti.
● You can add nuts instead of tutti frutti. Use nut of your choice like pecans, walnuts, almonds, cashewnuts etc. You can also use mixed nuts as per your palate preference.
● You can also make a simple custard muffins or custard powder cake by just omitting the tutti frutti.

WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF THESE MUFFINS

Tutti frutti custard muffins stays good for atleast 3-4 days at room temperature. To store for longer duration store in an airtight container in refrigerator which will go for more than a week.

HOW TO MAKE CUSTARD TUTTI FRUTTI MUFFINS

This is a super easy recipe without using stand mixer or any fancy equipments. We make the batter using one bowl and a spatula. Takes less than 15 minutes to make the batter and gets perfectly baked in 20 minutes.

Here’s a step by step method to make these delicious custard tutti frutti muffins.

Preheat oven @180° C (350 F) for 10 minutes with both filaments on.

If you’re not using silicone moulds line the muffin tray with liners. If you dont have liners just grease the tray with butter or oil.

In a mixing bowl place the sift and add in the flour, custard powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Sieve them together.

To the dry ingredients mixture add in the sugar, vanilla essence, oil, milk and vinegar.

Fold the mixture together and make a batter.

Add in the tutti frutti and give a gentle quick mix. Do not over mix the batter. You may coat it in little flour. This will prevent the tutti frutti from sinking at the bottom.

Scoop the batter into the muffin mould till ¾th of the cavity.

Sprinkle some tutti frutti over the muffins.

Bake at a preheated oven @180° C (350 F) for 20 minutes. A toothpick or skewer inserted should come out clean. (I bake with both the filaments on).

Remove from the oven and transfer onto a cooling rack. Let it stand for 5-10 minutes.

Demould and allow to cool down completely before serving.

NOTES:

● I have used homemade custard powder which has sugar and milk powder. If you are using the vegan version of my homemade custard powder or store bought custard powder you may need to increase the sugar a little bit if you like sweet cakes.
● You can use ½ cup butter instead of oil or use 50-50 ratio of oil and butter.
● You may make this cake with egg. Use 2 eggs and omit the baking soda and vinegar from the recipe.
● If you don’t want to use vinegar, you can use ½ cup curd/yogurt and adjust the consistency of the batter using milk.
● Baking time will differ depending upon your oven temperature settings because each oven reacts differently.
