Fruit Pastry Cake

Back in 2007, a lady by the name Vi Wood shared this awesome Fruit Pastry  cake recipe in a forum page.  It became extremely popular and had received many good reviews over the years and the success rate were good too.  I have baked this numerous times before.

Going through my old post, I realised that I have not baked this cake for the past 2 - 3 years.  Definitely nice to rekindle with this good recipe.

Reading the name, you will not associate this recipe to a cake and I have no idea how this name came about but all I know is that it is easy to assemble and a versatile recipe as you can add any fruit toppings to your liking.  

What you need:

210g cake flour
200g castor sugar + 2 tablespoons
100g butter
50g sour cream
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp lemon or orange peel
3 eggs
500g fruits (I used apricots, blueberries and strawberries)


Strain fruits (remove pits and cut to med sized pieces).

Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of sugar over the fruits. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 180°C. Butter and flour a round 9” baking pan (I used two 6 inch tins).

Beat butter, sour cream and sugar together.

Add eggs one at a time.

Add vanilla essence and the peel.

Sift in flour and baking powder and mix until everything is smooth.

Place batter in the pan and level nice. Place fruits on top (don’t press).

Bake for 1 hour or more.

Let cool on a rack and sprinkle with sugar and serve.
