Fruit Pastry Cake (non viral version)

As always,  aku selalu ketinggalan keretapi. This cake dah viral few years back,  masa zaman active blogging,  but tak terdetik nak buat.  Today aku paksa diri to bake sebab ada breakfast gathering at Gloria Jeans Cafe,  Tawakkal.  

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.
