Hello everyone

Cakes....this name brings water in mouth of every sweet tooth fellow like me. Though I am not a huge fan of too much calorie laden, ganache or cream laden cakes , so used to bake simple naked caked to hog on , with different flavours. Today I saw three kiwis sitting in my fridge and as they are little sour to eat as it is, so I thought why not to bake some cake out of it . And viola it turned out so distinctly yummy that you can't stop at only one slice. Little tangy and crispness of its seeds lead this cake to another level. This is really so easy to bake with handful of ingredients and is super delicious to eat. 
Step wise recipe is given below, do try and don't forget to tell me how's it turned out for you.


Serves: 4-5
Time: 45 mins


1 1/2 cup all purpose flour/ chapatti flour
3 kiwis peeled ( two pureed, one round sliced )
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla essence 
3 tbsp yogurt mixed with 1 tbsp water
1 pinch of salt
Few drops of edible green colour ( optional)


First of all add flour, baking powder and salt together and mix well. Keep aside for later use.

Now add baking soda in yogurt mix and give a quick stir. Let it rest for 5-10 min or till it become nice frothy.

Grease and dust a bundt pan. Arrange kiwi slices in the base as per your choice. Keep aside for later use.

Add sugar, water, oil, vanilla essence and food colour together. Stir till sugar is dissolved. Now add yogurt and give a quick stir, don't over mix.

Now add dry ingredients in wet ingredients in two or three batches and keep folding to get a nice lumpless batter. 

If it looks too dry , you can add some more water to get idli type consistency batter. Don't over mix after adding wet and dry ingredients together, just cut and fold to get perfect batter. 

Pour into baking pan and tap to release any air bubble trapped into batter.

Bake it at 180 degree C in a preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or till knife or skewer inserted in its middle , comes out clean.
Remove from oven and let it sit for 10-15 minutes then invert on a wire rack, to cool completely.

Your super yum beautiful kiwi cake is ready to relish on.

* you can increase or decrease sugar as per your taste.

* If not having bundt pan then use any baking pan of your choice.

Not only its taste but also its look will tempt you to try this simple yet droolicious cake.

Perfect for evening tea / kids tiffin/ picnic snacks or whenever you want a slice of cake without much guilt.

Hope you will definitely try this tempting cake and do share your experience with me. Please pour your valuable comments and suggestions here, they meant a lot to me.
