Fruity Cake

I got the recipe from HERE but modified it a little cos' I didn't have all the ingredients. The result was something which dh liked and he ate it for breakfast this morning and even packed two slices to work.

Here's sharing with you what I did .....using an 11" by 8" rectangular glass dish.


200 gm cake flour
1 tsp baking powder
170 gm sugar
100 gm butter
2 tbsp yoghurt
1 tbsp Irish Bailey Cream
zest and juice from 1 orange
3 nos. egg
2 nos. peach, 1 no. each of kiwi, mango and 7 nos. lychees (seeded)
(slice fruit pieces and sprinkle with 1 tbsp of sugar and chill in fridge till ready to use)


Pre-heat oven to 180 degree C.

Beat butter, sugar and yoghurt together till light and fluffy.

Add in the eggs one at a time and blend them well.

Add in the Irish Cream, orange zest and orange juice and mix well.

Fold in flour and baking powder.

Pour batter into the floured baking dish.

Place the slice fruits gently on top of the batter and bake for about 60 minutes.

When the cake top turns a golden brown, you may remove it from oven and cool it on a wired rack.

Refridgerate leftovers and they still taste yummy when eaten cold the next day.

While growing up in the southern US, my grandmother made something a bit similar. It is called fruit cobbler. It is very simple and uses much more fruit, though. If you are interested, just do a search for "strawberry cobbler or blackberry cobbler". It was always an easy way to use up home-picked fruits.
