Here comes a healthy butter and egg free tea cake/snack with fresh orange juice and dried fruit cake mix/Tutti Frutti…Here I used Fat Free Milk Powder which makes the cake very soft and also it enhances the taste. It’s optional but I have given several alternate ingredient for it otherwise you can skip…Anyways prepare the right consistency batter if the batter is runny then the loaf cake takes lot of time to cook.
