Fruit Pastry

Strawberry

I think the cut strawberry are so cute that I couldn’t resist dedicating a picture to it. Use the cookie cutter I bought from Hong Kong to cut the strawberry. Surprisingly, these strawberries smell really nice and also not sour. I’m not a fan of strawberries or any fruits that is sour but these are just nice. The balance of the strawberry bits and cherries are mixed into the batter.

Cherries

A very close fren of mine gave me some cherries the other day I met her for lunch. Those are big and sweet, pretty ex too at 300gm cost S$10 plus but most importantly, it’s the thought that touches me most. And all these fruits goes into ….

Fruit Pastry! It’s a very popular cake in IK (a forum) and I’ve read so many reviews that it’s very nice. I took the opportunity to buy these fruits when at Giant this morning.

The cross section of the cake, filled with cherries and strawberries bits. The aroma of the cake filled the house during the baking session. It’s soft and moist.

3 eggs
Fruits (apricots, peaches, pears, cherries, plums, orange, pineapple, or any other fruit not to juicy)

2. Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).
3. Beat butter, sour cream and sugar together.

9. Bake for 60-70 mins.
10. Leave to cool on cooling rack.

Baking Tin :

Source : Vi

Notes :
– I modify the recipe slightly by using cake flour and also reducing the amount of sugar (from 200g)
– You may want to cover the top in the last 15 mins of baking so it’s not too brown.
– For LG SolarDom oven, I bake at 170 degrees for 55 mins.

    Hi Ovenhaven,

    Yea … I also feel the strawberries look really pretty, I think star shape will be nice too! This is a good recipe, do give it a try but do note if you reduce the sugar to 150gm, some of them have encounter a drier texture.

    Hey Pansy,

    Thank you :) So how have you been with yr baking?

  7. pansy says:

    i have been really busy at work recently, and haven’t been baking at all! unless you consider mango pudding baking :p

    seeing your post the other day made me want to bake again. just got back from tangs/taka/robinson. was looking for some ramekins (no luck. they have so VERY expensive ones – $12.50 for 1!! by le C something). crossing my fingers that i can find some at phoon huat.

    elyn, have you seen any small size (5″ or 4″) baking pan/springform/cake rings? the 6″ pan is still too big for my family and i spied some lovely small cakes at taka basement today! hehe.. i can’t help but hope to find those sizes.

    if you see them, can you help me buy or let me know please?

    many thanks!

    Hi Pansy, have you tried Pantry Magic for the ramekins? I last checked and thought the price is pretty reasonable.

    For the small cake tins, I thought I saw them @ Phoon Huat too or Gim Him Lee may have it. I notice Daiso sometimes stock the smaller baking pans, do take a look. I’ll let u know if I drop by and chanced upon them.
