Lemon Strawberry Bundt Cake



This is a light and moist lemony cake with a hint of strawberry.  Do be liberal with the greasing and dusting of the Bundt pan as the strawberry may stick to it when unmoulding.  Great cake to go with tea or coffee!

                                                            Mooncakes are on sale again as the Mid-autumn Mooncake festival is not too far away.   As we are going through a rather tough time because of the Covid 19 pandemic, many mooncakes can be bought online saving the hassle of going out and having to endure long queues with appropriate social distancing at popular venues selling mooncakes.   I managed to get some lotus paste and here I'm sharing with you my post of this simple Lotus Walnut Mooncakes.

                                                          Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.   Recipe for Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake Ingredients (Dough) 150 gm superfine flour, sifted 90 ml golden syrup 38 ml vegetable oil 2 ml alkaline water Egg wash - 1 whole egg + 1 tsp water, mix well and strain. Method Mix syrup, oil and alkaline water thoroughly with a handwhisk. Sift in flour, mix well with spatula and let rest for 2 hours or more, till it doesn't stick to the hands.
