Mandarin Orange Fruit Pastry Cake ~ 橘子蛋糕


Fruit pastry cakes have been on the blogosphere some time back and it was then the trend to bake fruit pastry cakes.  One can bake a fruit pastry cake with whatever fruits you fancy, they can be canned fruits, fresh or stone fruits.  As for the post that I'm sharing today, I only used one type of fruit and here I've decorated the cake with just segments of Mandarin orange.




Mandarin Orange Fruit Pastry Cake ~  橘子蛋糕  
Ingredients 
  • 100 gm butter
  • 150 gm caster sugar
  • 2 Tbsp yoghurt or sour cream (I used yoghurt)
  • 3 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1.1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 210 gm plain flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp  baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • Mandarin oranges, segments
  • Snow powder or icing sugar for dusting
Method
  1. Grease the sides and line the base of an 8 inch spring form pan.
  2. Sift flour with baking powder and salt, set aside.
  3. Beat butter and sugar till well incorporated, add in yoghurt and beat till light and fluffy.
  4. Dribble in the the beaten eggs gradually.  Batter will curdle.
  5. Add vanilla, lemon juice and zest.
  6. Fold in the sifted flour, mix till smooth.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, smooth out the top with a spatula.  Arrange the Mandarin orange segments on top, do not press the fruits down into the batter.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for about 45 mins. till golden brown.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  9. Let cake cool in pan before unmoulding.
  10. Dust the cake with snow powder or icing sugar.
