Cake for a Fren...

This is a cake I baked for a friend's birthday which falls on today :D As most of her family members are diabetic, so I modified the recipe by placing the sugar with splenda sugar. I also replaced some of the flour with ground almonds to give a different texture & flavour :D Hope they like the cake!

Recipe modified from here...

  • 100g butter
  • 10 tbsp splenda sugar
  • 50g yoghurt
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 140gm cake flour
  • 70gm ground almond
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • peaches, strawberries & longan
  1. Grease (with butter) and flour the side of a 8" square pan and line the base with parchment paper.
  2. With an electric mixer, cream butter, sugar and yogurt till light and fluffy.
  3. Dribble in the eggs gradually and beat till incorporated in the batter. (The mixture may appear slightly curdled.)
  4. Add vanilla paste and zest. Mix to combine.
  5. Sieve over flour, ground almond and baking powder and mix till smooth.
  6. Pour batter into prepared pan and smooth out the top with a spatula.
  7. Arrange fruits on top, don’t press the fruits down into the batter. Decorate the fruits as desired.
  8. Bake in pre-heat oven at 180degC for 40 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the cake.
  9. Leave the cake to cool in the pan for about 5~10 mins. Unmold and transfer to wire rack to let cool completely. Dust the cake with some icing sugar if desired.
