Mixed fruits pastry cake, Encore! Fruity March

mixed fruits pastry cake

I would like to submit this mixed fruits pastry cake to Aspiring Baker#5 : Fruity March hosted by Bakericious before the last day of closing. I baked this cake for my sister-in-law family from Kuantan who came to visit me and stay a night with us. I know this type of cake is suitable for them, as it is less oily, not too sweet and very refreshing with all mixed fruits.

This time, I double up the recipe from the previous strawberry pastry cake.

3. Beat butter, sugar till pale and fluffy.
4. Add in yogurt and mix well.
5. Add egg one at a time, combine well.
6. Fold in flour, slowly combine and mix well.
7. Pour cake batter into prepared pan and smooth out the top.
8. Arrange mixed fruits on top of the cake batter, don’t press the fruits down into the batter.

That looks delicious, Sonia! What super photos you took of it too. Sour cream always makes a cake very moist. I think I'd like a big dollop of whipped cream on this!

Janetan said...

hi sonia,
fabulous! your cake isn't just a cake itself but an art...hopefully i can bake one just like yours.

oh, i got this question keep annoy me. does cake flour is self raising flour or just the flour? because in your recipe there is no leavening agent.

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Jane, cake flour is low protein flour which is suitable for making cake and biscuit . It is difference from self raising flour. In my recipe, there is baking powder added.

suhana azlin said...

Hi Sonia, is this a very sweet cake cos u used 300g sugar in it? MKM

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

MKM, the sweetness of this cake is just ok, there is sour cream or yogurt added , so it balance the sweetness. If not, you may reduce the sugar to suit your tastebud.

Jeannie said...

You are very generous with your fruits! gorgeous!

Little Corner of Mine said...

Hi Sonia,

This cake is very beautiful and interesting.
If can't finish this cake in 1 day, can it be stored for few days? Do you need to refrigerate it after the first day? Thanks
