Fruit Pastry Cake


This 'Fruit Pastry Cake' does not need much introduction as it's been very popular amongst fellow bloggers recently.  Mine is adapted from 'Peng's Kitchen'.   I simplified it a bit as I only used two types of fruits, canned sliced peaches and fresh strawberries.



Drain off the syrup from the canned peaches and arrange them on the cake with the halved strawberries. 
After 70 mins. in the oven, the cake is transformed ..............you can dress it up a little or just leave it as it is.



I chose to dress it up a little.  Dusted some icing sugar on top and it looks like snow drops!  So pretty!









Not only is the cake pretty, it tastes great too with the fruits ........... just yummy!  A keeper for sure!

Ingredients
  • 100 gm butter
  • 200 gm caster sugar ( I reduced it to 170 gm)
  • 50 gm sour cream  ( I used low fat yoghurt)
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1  tsp vanilla
  • 1  tsp lemon/orange zest
  • 210 gm plain flour
  • 1 level tsp baking powder
  • 500 gm fruits tossed with 2 Tbsp sugar  ( I omitted this).  Fruits can be peaches, strawberries, blueberries, cherries, pineapples, pears or any other fruits that are not juicy.
  • Icing sugar, optional
Method
  1. Lightly grease and dust an 8 in. or 9 in. round springform cake pan.  Set aside.
  2. Sift flour with baking powder and set aside.
  3. Drain off the syrup from the canned peaches and cut the strawberries into half.
  4. Cream butter, sugar and yoghurt together till light and fluffy.
  5. Add in lightly beaten eggs, little by little and beat till well incorporated into the batter. (Mixture may curdle slightly).
  6. Add in vanilla essence and zest.  Mix to combine.
  7. Fold in sifted flour, mix well, scraping from the bottom and the sides of the mixing bowl.
  8. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  9. Arrange the fruits on top, do not press the fruits down onto the batter.
  10. Bake in preheated oven @ 180 deg C for 60 - 70 mins. Test with skewer till it comes out clean. Cover the top with foil in the last 15 mins. of baking to prevent browning.
  11. Leave the cake to cool in the pan for about 5 - 10 mins.  Unmould and transfer to wire rack to cool.
  12. Dust cake with icing sugar if desired.

    1. Sorry for the late reply. I suppose you can bake this cake and keep in the fridge, wrap it up in cling wrap. If in Malaysia,it's best to keep it this way but if you're in a cold country, you can just keep it in a container.

Fried 'Nian Gao' ~ Sticky rice cake ~ CNY 2010

'Nian Gao' in Mandarin or 'Nin Ko' in Cantonese is a must-have item during CNY.  This sticky glutinous rice cake is symbolic as it carries a homonym that sounds like 'year~high/tall'.  For business people eating this will link them to prosperity and wealth and working people will look forward to career advancement, promotion. Slice them up when they're still soft, keep them in containers and they can be stored in the fridge for months. I normally steam and dip them in freshly grated young coconut mixed with some salt or just fry with beaten egg.  But this time around, I've decided to be a bit more 'challenging' and try out Elin's recipe.  Thanks, Elin of  Elinluv's Tidbits Corner   for sharing!
