Fruit Pastry Cake
Fruit Pastry Cake from May Tay in my fb group
100 fine sugar
150g butter (room temperature)
75g low fat yoghurt
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tsp lemon zest ( I love lemon. You can reduce if you don't like it that much)
4 large eggs (whisk lightly set one side)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
310g cake flour
Fruits as you like as long as it's not too wet.
(Eg, peaches, blueberries, strawberries, apples, pineapples, pear etc)
Beat butter, sugar and yoghurt till light and fluffy.
Add in eggs one by one until fully mixed
Add in vanilla extract while adding in eggs
Combine flour and baking soda and sieve all into mixture. You might want to fold it in before using mixer to beat mixture till smooth. (So that flour won't fly around)
Pour mixture into 9" cake mold and arrange fruits as you like. Don't press in the fruits.
Pre-heat oven @ 170 degrees Celsius
Bake for 60-70 mins until stick comes out clean.
After cake is baked, let it cool for 15 mins in mold before turning it out on cooling tray.
Cool completely before you sieve icing sugar over the top.
If you like sweeter cake, pls go ahead and increase up to 150g.
