How to make eggless fruit cake

To start, in a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a large bowl, mix together oil and sugar until well combined. Add in yogurt, buttermilk, vanilla extract, and vinegar, and mix until combined. Gradually mix in the flour mixture, being careful not to overmix.

Toss your choice of fruit (such as berries or chopped stone fruit) with a tablespoon of flour, then gently fold the fruit into the batter using a spatula. Pour the batter into your prepared pan.

In a separate medium bowl, combine sugar, flour, and oil to make the crumb topping. Spread the topping evenly over the cake batter.

Bake the cake at 350 F (180C)  for 50-60 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Once done, cool the cake on a wire rack and dust with powdered sugar before serving.

This Eggless Fruit Cake is perfect for serving at summer gatherings, potlucks, or just as a sweet treat for yourself and your family.

    I made the cake and it turned out well but the crumble was still wet and soggy and not crispy. I use a gas oven which does no circulate heat really well so to counter for that I had placed 2 baking sheets each on top and below it. I cooked it for 80 mins cause the crumble didn’t cook and it still turned out wet. Please help me. The cake turned really well tho ????
