Speckled Tropical Bundt Cake/Pomegranate & tutti frutti studded Pineapple & Coconut bundt cake – #BundtBakers

Our host for march The Mom Chef, gave us a wide theme : Tropical Vacation.  I have put everything tropical in this cake!! 🙂 This bundt is inspired from here. It was an experiment, but we totally loved the final outcome. Though i named it speckled, the color of the cake ended up a bit dark, that we couldn’t see the pomegranate pearls and tutti frutti in it. It was all together a flavor bursts in your mouth, a bite of pomegranate, taste of pineapple, a dash of coconut, divinely tropical.

Ingredients

2 cups All purpose flour
1.5 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 & 2/3 cups of Pineapple juice,fresh 
1/2 cup grated jaggery/Palm sugar
1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup pomegranate pearls
1/4 cup tutti frutti (candied raw papaya cubes)
1/4 cup olive oil
 
Topping
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
2 tbsp sweetened coconut flakes
2 tbsp fresh pomegranate pearls

 

Method
  • Sift together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. To this add coconut flakes,  pomegranate pearls, tutti frutti, mix well.
  • Add grated jaggery  and oil to pineapple juice and mix well.
  • Now add the wet ingredients to the dry. Using a spatuala,  carefully combine to form a homogeneous mixture.
  • I baked them as 1 small bundt and remaining batter into 12 mini muffins. Prepare the pans, by greasing them with oil and flour 
  • Preheat the oven to 190C. Pour the batter upto 3/4 of the pan. Smooth the top. Bake for about 30-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Take it out of the oven. Remove the cake on to a wire-rack to cool completely.
  • For the topping, melt the choco chips in a  microwave safe mug for a minute. Pour the chocolate on top of the budnt, garnish wtih coconut flakes and pomegranate pearls, serve warm.
