Blueberry and Nectarine Cake


I fell in love with the cake the moment I saw it on Piggy's blog.
It looked so so pretty.

Then I saw Elin doing this as well with peaches and blueberries. That time I already have nectarine and blueberries (bought weeks ago) in the fridge. I shouldn't wait any longer. Actually, somehow I've forgotten about this cake, until I saw it on Elin's blog.


I used China nectarines, which are a lot cheaper. This cake is very nice to eat, moist and soft.


Nectarine and Blueberry Cake Recipe
Recipe source : Piggy's Cooking Journal who adapted from 手のひらサイズのベイクドケーキ

Ingredients:
144g butter, at room temperature
100g castor sugar
2 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
144g self-raising flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder (I skipped this)
2 tablespoon yogurt
2 nectarines, cut into slices (mine was rather smallish)
40 blueberries (surprisingly, I really did throw in 20 blueberries per pan without counting initially, cos that is all that could fit the sides nicely)

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.

    Anne,
    My cake actually bursted. You should look at piggy's cake. Mine is a shame compared to hers. I could only take from one angle for both cakes, as other angles will reveal how ugly the batter bursted out
