Eggless Fruit Cake

Eggless Fruit Cake

Watch the video for this recipe:

I have been requested for an eggless cake for quite some time now, and I am finally sharing with you my favorite way of making an eggless cake - a soft and moist vanilla sponge cake, filled with fruits and topped with a crumble topping. One of the best ways to enjoy the abundance of summer fruits.


I have used cherries and peaches this time, but feel free to use different fruits, from all kinds of berries to apricots, plums or nectarines and have a different dessert each time.  Me and my family really loved this easy summer dessert, hope you will try it out too. Enjoy!

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 ????
