Cardamom Walnut Tuti Fruti Cake

Cardamom Walnut tuti fruti cake
Hello Sweeties!!!!I am lagging behind in posting, but new year started on a rough patch health wise. It is getting back on track so hoping now on, I don't disappoint you all.

Today I bring to you a very simple yet rich cake. This cake I made  a couple of times since the year started and it gets vanished  before I can find a box to store it. Make it to believe it.

You will need;
1 1/2 cups All Purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup oil (vegetable, canola or extra light olive oil)
1/2 cup buttermilk 

1 Tbspn Cardamom Powder
1 cup Tuti Fruiti and walnuts dusted with all purpose flour
1/2 tspn Salt
 

Preheat oven to 350*F. In a medium bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir together with whisk, and set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer, add eggs and beat 10-20 seconds. Add sugar and continue to beat on medium speed about 30 seconds. Add vanilla and oil, beat. 
 
Reduce mixer speed to low and slowly add about half of the flour mixture. Add half of the buttermilk, then the rest of the flour and the rest of the buttermilk. Beat until just combined. Scrap down the side of the bowl. Fold in the flour dusted nuts and tuti fruit and fold.
 
Grease a cake pan with some oil and dust the flour or line a parchment paper. Pour the cake batter in the well greased pan and bake in a pre-heated oven for 35-40 minutes.

 Once cool cut into slices and its ready to eat. The cake develops overnight, so if you can wait; wait for a day or so to indulge.
