Ingredients for the caramel syrup:
1/2 cup sugar
1tsp+ 1/4 cup water
Ingredients for the batter:
1 cup maida
1 cup butter
1 cup chopped dry fruits(badam,cashew,raisins)
1 cup tutti frutti
1 cup sugar
2 or 3 eggs
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract (i used 2 tsp vanilla icecream powder for flavour)
(two reasons 1. i failed in making icecream with the icecream powder
2. i havent had vanilla extract)
a pinch of salt
grated lemon zest about 1/2 tsp
cocoa powder-2 tsp(optional)
instant coffee powder - 1tsp(optional)
prepare the caramel syrup by adding a tsp of water to 1/2 cup of sugar....the sugar changes colour from white-light brown - dark brown in colour..switch off the flame and add 1/4 cup of very warm water to it..mix well and let it cool completely..
Add powdered sugar to butter and beat well ( i use buttermilk churner). drop in the eggs 1 at a time and beat well... add the flour mixture (sieve maida, baking powder, and salt 2 to 3 times ),vanilla extract, mix in half of the caramel(do not overdo beating after adding flour),the rest of the caramel, lemon zest, tutti frutti mixture( coat the chopped dry fruits and tutti frutti with maida so that they spread evenly through the cake), coffee powder and mix gently....
Grease the bottom and sides of the rice cooker pan with ghee or butter and pour the mixture into the pan....tap gently to avoid the air bubbles and close the lid....it may take around 40 min... u can smell the cake and the cake gets ready when a knife inserted comes out clean..
slice and serve...
