Britannia Eggless Fruit Cake with WWF




Britannia fruitcake has so many childhood memories associated with it. That multicolor tutti frutti always excited me, but since they were not eggless fruit cake, we rarely got to eat them. I always wished if there were Britannia eggless fruit cakes. Luckily we now get vegetarian cakes as well, but ye “un dino ki baat hai”.

After I grew up and I ensured that I am making eggless cakes. Being vegetarian should not become problems to many and hence here is my Britannia fruit cake recipe without eggs. And not just cake, I also have Eggless Tutti Frutti Bread recipe for those who love tutti frutti just like me.

Christmas is nearing and many people now would be planning to make Christmas cake. In general, Christmas cakes are alcoholic, but for those who do are non-alcoholic they must start preparing for non-alcoholic Christmas cake.

Eggless Fruit Cake Recipe with Condensed Milk

The best part about everyday cakes is that you don’t need heavy equipment to mix and any fancy stuff to decorate. They are quick to make and you don’t need any special occasion to bake these cakes.

Today’s recipe is about famous Britannia fruit cake recipe but a much healthier version than what you get in the market. Haven’t I told you that baking at home gives you so many advantages over eating market bought baked goodies?

My initial trial was with All-purpose flour (Maida). I was very much happy with the outcome. But I wanted it to be healthier. My next experiment was then with my favorite ingredient, yes, 100% Whole Wheat.

Eggless Fruit Cake with Whole Wheat

It has all the goodness of whole wheat flour and without using harmful chemicals and preservatives.  Baking this cake at home and serving it to your family will not make you feel guilty.

This, like other recipes on my blog, is again a tried and tested recipe. While experimenting on a recipe, when I get the desired result, I take a pause. Then to be sure with the recipe, I bake the same recipe for at least two more times and my family and neighbor becomes my lab rats for testing.

This recipe surprised me with not only a positive response from everyone but almost 80% of people asking me to take their orders. Should I start taking orders or not, is still a question in my mind, Lol.

But now I was confident about my recipe. This cake will simply melt in your mouth. I am sure by now you must be excited to try this recipe. Then let’s start the recipe.

How to make fruit cake without egg

First thing first, keep your oven for preheating at 180 °C.

In a mixing bowl, take condensed milk, melted butter, oil, and vanilla extract. Using a whisker/spatula, mix all the wet ingredients.

For this recipe, I have used salted butter and hence not added additional salt. I feel salted butter enhanced its flavors. However, if you are going to use unsalted butter, then add ¼ tsp of salt in addition.

Wet Ingredients for Britannia style Eggless Fruit Cake with Whole wheat

Using a sieve sift flour, baking powder, and baking soda directly into the bowl with wet ingredients. Do not skip sifting if you want a soft and fluffy cake. It helps to remove the unwanted particles but helps to aerate the flour. In eggless baking, sifting plays an important role.

Dry Ingredients for Britannia style Eggless Fruit Cake with Whole wheat

Using the cut and fold method, mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Start adding milk to make the batter of pouring consistency. The batter should be smooth. Now add tutti frutti to the batter and fold.

Batter for Britannia style Eggless Fruit Cake with Whole wheat

Time to Bake

Pour the prepared batter into a greased baking tin. Tap the tin on counter to release the air bubbles. Now, bake it in the preheated oven at 180 °C for 25 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.

Before baking Britannia style Eggless Fruit Cake with Whole wheat

When a toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean, it means the cake is baked and ready to take out from the oven. Take the baking tin out from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes demold the cake, slice and serve. This cake tastes best when served warm.

  1. I love to bake.. But I don’t have oven..

    One time I bake some kind of cake using pressure cooker and it comes well..

    Is it possible to bake this eggless cake in pressure cooker?
    How much time It need to bake?

  2. Thanks Sonia. Will still be good to check your video for mixing method here and dough consistency if you happen to capture it next time.

  3. Hi Sonia,

    I tried this cake and it came out good in parts. I had the middle part of the cake not baked. Is it because of my temperature being on the higher side? Pondering over an over thermometer as i write. And secondly, I did not get this batter to be fluid/porous. Seems tight/tough. Would be good if you can show the video for this recipe too like some others.

    • Aishwarya,

      If your cake wasn’t baked from the middle then its definitely because of temperature. Other reason could be wrong oven setting. Always use the bottom coil to bake a cake and place the tin on a middle rack for even baking.

      If you feel your batter was thick then you can add milk accordingly as I mentioned in the recipe notes, every flour has different absorption capacity.

      Happy Baking

  4. Hi Sonia,

    The cake came out good. Thank you for the recipe 😊 If I need it to be sweeter in taste, what would you suggest to add? More condensed milk or regular sugar? If sugar, then can it be dissolved in the milk we are adding at the end or better mixed with butter at the beginning?


    • Hi Ramya,
      Yes, you can use two tablespoons of sugar, either dissolve it in condensed milk or in the milk, the choice is yours.
      Alternatively, to keep recipe healthy, you can use 2 tbs of honey.
      – Sonia

  5. Thanks Sonia, One more query – the size of the pan you have mentioned, can you maybe add a link to purchase the pan you use (maybe here and in every recipe) so that I can see if I can get them. Some measurements I’m able to find with good brands while others I can find but not sure on the reliability of the brands. So if you can mention the one you are using, it would give confidence for the readers to purchase.

    • Ramya, thanks much for writing. At the end of our recipes we include the links of ingredients and tools used in the recipe, however, we will now specifically create links of the pan that we use.
      Thanks again.

  6. Hi Sonia,

    I baked this and found it to be a little hard, not too fluffy. I could observe this in the batter stage too. I added a little more milk but in general what could be the reason(like over whisking of wet ingredients?) and what can be done if the batter gets thick?


  7. Hi Mam, I tried your Britannia Eggless Fruit Cake with Whole Wheat flour..Came well, but I felt difficulty in converting all grams measurements to Cups and Tbsps. Can you please mention the measurements in Cups.

  8. Hi.
    Can I make this recipe with APF?. also how can I substitute condense milk. My family doesn’t like condense milk. Please guide.

  9. Thank you Sonia for such a healthy recipe.
    I have MR40 otg,it has two mode grill convection n baking for baking cakes which mode should I use n at wat temperature . thank you.
