In my previous post, I shared Indian Milkmaid recipes with you all. But I know, many of you would also want to learn about its usage in simple baking dishes like cakes.
So today, I’m going to talk about a fresh fruit Milkmaid cake recipe that can be made without eggs. It’s an easy to make recipe and you can prepare it at home using oven as well as pressure cooker.
I would have loved to post the chocolate cake recipe, but I think I’ll keep it for some other day. I don’t like chocolate cakes as much as I used to in my childhood days. Now, I’ve found my new love in fresh fruit cakes due to their fresh flavors and some health benefits.
It can also be a great way to introduce your kids to different fruits like Kiwis, Pineapples, Oranges, Mangos, etc. They will surely love the cake and fruits combination.
So, let’s begin with the recipe of this delicious cake.

If you use completely sweet fruit pieces, it won’t taste as good as you’d like. You must have an ingredient that can give the extra bit of tanginess to this type of cake.
