INGREDIENTS- For the cake base
¾ cup plain yogurt
¾ cup plain yogurt
¾ cup brown sugar
One pinch cinnamon powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup of vegetable oil
1½ cup all-purpose flour
¼ tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of baking powder
¼ cup water/ fresh juice
¼ cup tutti frutti or fresh fruit chunks of your choice
For the almond crust
½ cup of Crushed biscuits
Just a tab bit of cinnamon powder(optional)
100 grams chunks of almonds
Take a large mixing bowl and add curd, sugar, oil, and vanilla extract. Whisk it well.
Next step is to add all the dry ingredients like flour, baking soda, cinnamon powder, and baking powder together and mix it well in a separate bowl.
Now add the 1st and second bowl together using cut and fold technique.
To maintain the consistency of the batter, add water or juice of your choice. The juice will add a punch of flavor that will transform your cake.
Now add all the fruit chunks and give it a perfect mix.
Mix the cookies, almond, and cinnamon with some vegan butter or oil.
Take a mold of your choice and grease it nicely. Make a nice layer of the almond cookie crust at the bottom before you transfer the cake batter into the mold.
Remove air bubbles by patting the tray/mold twice on the counter lightly. It will help level it up.
Preheat the oven and bake the cake at 180-degree celsius for about 30-40 minutes.
You can decorate it with fresh fruits and cream or dust it up with some powdered sugar. And voila! You are done.
This lovely cake is well balanced in terms of flavors and texture. So simple but enough and a must-try recipe.
Tips and tricks from our chef:
If you don’t want to use yogurt, try milk with a tsp of vinegar.
In case you go ahead with condensed milk, skip the sugar.
Add as many dry fruits you like for extra crunch.
Juice instead of water will make your ake extra flavourful, but mind the flavor. Guava won’t work with kale.

This cake is perfect for every occasion, and best served hot on a cold winter night with a thick coffee mug.
