Cornflakes Mixed Fruit Cake


I was browsing through my collection of recipes and chanced upon this recipe, using the rub-in method.  That reminds me that I haven't been baking a cake using this method for ages.  So, time to refresh.  It was not a disappointment  as it turned out great, so yummy that I just want to share it with you!














This not too sweet cake is moist with a tinge of crunchy cornflakes and nutty almonds, combined with the dried fruits, it's just light and refreshing  ....... more so with a cup of piping hot coffee or tea!   It's very easy to make, just follow the straightforward steps below!

Ingredients
  • 200 gm plain flour
  • 2.3/4  tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup/30 gm cornflakes, finely blended
  • 180 gm butter/margarine
  • 6  Tbsp ground almonds
  • 100 gm brown sugar
  • 3 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1  tsp vanilla essence
  • 150 ml milk/soymilk   ( I used sugarless soymilk)
  • 100 gm mixed fruits - 60 gm dried pineapple, 20 gm sultanas and 20 gm cranberries, chopped.
  • A pinch of salt
Method
  1. Cut up the dried fruits and coat with some flour from the above recipe, set aside.
  2. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl.  Add in the blended cornflakes, mix well.
  3. Cut in the butter into the flour mixture till it resembles breadcrumbs.
  4. Add in ground almonds and sugar, mix well.
  5. Stir in the lightly beaten eggs, soymilk, mix in slowly.
  6. Lastly, add in the mixed fruits.
  7. Pour batter into a lightly greased and floured 8 inch sq. tin.
  8. Bake in preheated oven @ 180 deg C for 45 - 50 mins.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  9. Cool in tin for about 5 mins. before removing from tin and cool completely on a wire rack.

    Yes I do notice that the taste is slightly different, not so much the texture. I'm not a milk fan. I prefer soymilk and I use it for my curries too, less cholesterol and less oily!

Yam Puff ~ 'Wu Kok'

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ...... 'Wu Kok' or Yam dumplings.  Initially I had a hard time struggling with the soft and sticky dough in the hot and stuffy kitchen, but fortunately after chilling it in the fridge for 50 mins., it could be 'man-handled' quite easily!  Phew, not too bad as this is my first attempt!

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
