Peach & Blueberry Cake


I know I have been drooling and drooling at Piggy's blog - Piggy Cooking Journal for the past year and have listed down a few of her bakes to try out and have added them to my to do list. And now finally, I managed to find the time to bake this one out and OMG..it was one delicious and delectable cake that I am sure you will want to try it out yourself. I picked up some USA peaches and blueberries from  Jusco  and tada... this is the outcome ! I used peaches instead of nectarine .  A wonderful and tasty peach and blueberry cake.....recipe stolen from Piggy's blog. We are fated to love the same recipe :p  Thank you, Piggy for sharing this delectable goodness. Read on for the recipe :)  You can guess who are the lucky persons to get to eat this delectable cake.....yessss.....they are....


Piggy Cuz and Claire :)) and of course the main person is Joshua. He loves all my bakes and I am most happy to bake for him since he is back for 2 weeks. I gonna miss him when he goes back to KL start  his 2nd semester (3 year ) He has another year before he goes to UK...under the same programme like the sister :) After which I will be free to travel myself and I hope to stay fit so that I can put on my travelling shoes on :)  We can plan but God determine after all :)   Sorry I digress but back to this great cake....here are some pictures to seduce you to try it out yourself :)

Nectarine and Blueberry Cake Recipe - ( adapated from Piggy's Blog )

Recipe adapted from 手のひらサイズのベイクドケーキ


* I substituted Nectarine with Peaches


Ingredients:


72g butter, at room temperature
50g castor sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
72g self-raising flour
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon yogurt
1/2 nectarine, cut into slices
20 blueberries

Method:

1) Preheat oven to 170 deg C. Grease a 18cm loaf pan, and then line with baking paper.

2) In a medium bowl, whip butter and sugar with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy. Beat the egg into the batter, follow by vanilla extract. Mix until just combine.

3) Mix in yogurt, follow by flour and baking powder. Mix until the flour just disappear from the batter.

4) Scrape the batter into the pan. Arrange nectarine slices and blueberries on the batter.

5) Bake in the pre-heated oven for 40 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the center of the cake turns out clean. Remove from oven, let the cakes cool on wire rack, serve.


Enjoy !
