Cakes made with fruit have a long and interesting past that goes back hundreds of years to Rome and Egypt. In the beginning, these cakes were made with honey, nuts, and stored fruits to represent fertility and wealth. Fruit cakes have become a beloved custom over time, especially during holidays and other special times. Nowadays, people all over the world enjoy different kinds of fruit cakes, from traditional Christmas fruitcakes to more modern versions like Shehnaaz's all-fruit birthday treat. 


For those inspired by Shehnaaz's fruity birthday bash, here's a simple yet wonderful fruit cake recipe to recreate the magic at home 


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 1 tsp baking powder 
  • ½ tsp baking soda 
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened 
  • 1 cup granulated sugar 
  • 3 large eggs 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • ½ cup milk 
  • Assorted fresh fruits (such as strawberries, kiwi, grapes, and dragon fruit) 
  • Whipped cream or frosting of your choice 
  • Edible flowers (optional, for garnish)

Method: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a round cake pan. In a bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Set aside. In a separate large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk, until well combined. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool completely before decorating. Once cooled, spread a layer of whipped cream or frosting over the top of the cake. Arrange the assorted fresh fruits on top of the cake in a decorative pattern. Garnish with edible flowers, if desired, for an extra touch of elegance. Slice, serve, and enjoy your homemade fruit cake masterpiece!
