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.
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.
I wanted to bring a whole cake back to office so I’ve to make another one, right? The cherries doesnt look too good when it’s bake so I put strawberries this time.

Baking Tin :
– I use a 7″ round springform tin so the cake is higher.
Source : Vi
– 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.
