Bangladeshi Fruit Cake




Bangladeshi Fruit Cake is actually close to lite fruit cake with raisins, glazed cherry and Ash Gourd candy. There is no fruit cake in Bangladesh without Ash Gourd candy (morobba), even morobba is vastly used in every type of cakes. Another thing is the use of ghee or missed ghee and oil.  So literally there is no use of butter in baking in Bangladesh. Wish you merry Christmas and prosperous new year.


  • 1/2 cup ghee / unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 and ½ cups dry fruit(raisins, glazed cherry and Ash Gourd candy )
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup milk powder

Also needs loaf pan or your desire pan. I use electric mixer to make whole process easier but you can beat by spatula.









How to make:

  1. Spray or brush oil the pan and preheat oven to 180˚C.
  2. Mix sugar butter together and beat till sugar dissolve and becomes light and fluffy. Add eggs one by one and beat well.
  3. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together; gradually add in egg mixture.
  4. Add milk powder and vanilla essence in it. With a spatula fold dry fruits with batter
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove from oven and let it cool for about 10 minutes before removing from pan.
  6. Enjoy Bangladeshi Fruit Cake.


  1. If you don’t have non-stick pan just brush oil and sprinkle flour over and you will your non-stick pan.
  2. Bake cake in the centre of the oven.
  3. If you find the cake is browning too much, cover with a piece of aluminium foil.
