Bila baca the viral version, I was turned off. Sebab the fat (butter) content is low, sugar too high, flour ratio is high too, which will yield a dry and crumbly cake. True enough, feedbacks from friends yg dah bake the cake, and other blogs, memang cakap cake ni kering and berderai. I don't like dry cake, to me, a cake has to be moist and buttery. So I came up with my own version for the base.
Fruit Pastry Cake
250gram butter (unsalted)
1 1/4 cup sugar
6 eggs lightly beaten
3 1/2 cup self raising flour
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
(boleh omit the salt Kalau guna salted butter)
Cream butter and sugar. Pastu add the egg , vanilla, salt until well combined. Then add the flour, alternate with yoghurt. Then spread in a 12x12 inch pan (Atau 2 x 7inci pan). Susun the fruits (sliced peach, blueberries and strawberries), jangan press the fruits down, baked for 50-60 minutes, 150-160 degree Celsius.
Bake using 12x12 pan sebab cake is not supposed to be too tall.
