FRUIT PASTRY CAKE

 
Yes, I'm finally baking something from my 'baking long list' again....LOL, but one sad thing is, my mixer broke down last Saturday after baking two batches of cupcakes......sigh***
I know, I know, it's time to get a more 'keng' (heavy-duty) one....that's what everybody is telling me :( I wish I can afford a 'Kitchen Aid' now, at this moment....that would be so cool and perfect at this timing, but hey, who doesn't know how much a KA cost......I'm not one that can easily come out with that kind of cash to buy something I wish I can.....as there are so many things that i need to take into consideration in. Well, that doesn't stop me from baking (sticking my tongue out, LOL), as I'm going to get a temporary one (to my affordability now) that will substitute my broken one just fine.......and can last me till beginning of next year, when I get my bonus, I'm going to get a really heavy-duty one for myself , if possible, a 'KA' , hehe
As mentioned, nothing can stop me from baking.......here's what I baked last night, one of the 'hot cakes' in the blogpost as far as I know for the past one month and is still hot now, it's called the "Fruit Pastry Cake".


Don't misunderstand me, it's not a 'fruit cake' that normally people bake for Christmas or Weddings, but this is something that is so perfect for an 'afternoon garden tea'.....well, why do I say that?? because the outlook of this pastry cake is just so beautiful, I would say, if you set it on a Victorian garden table, beside the expensive cups and saucers.....they'll just look great! So much imagination huh you would say.........LOL
Well, once in awhile, it's good to take your mind out and let it wander.......be imaginative and creative, and it'll be really colourful. I have had a very stressful and hectic past few weeks......so, I guess it's time I get back to my normal usual pace and unwind. Hope you agree with me that 'life sometimes are really full of surprises'.......'no matter it is for better or for worst, it always comes with a reason behind it, let's just be glad that we get to witness it', cheers!
I won't be drafting out the recipe here, as I have followed exactly from this recipe that I adapted from here, though the only thing I omitted was the 'blueberries, as I can't seem to find any :(


.........but the cake still turned out perfect, it's yummy and you'll love it.


Happy 'Fruit Pastry Cake' baking !!

Nicely done!!!
May I have tea with you???I'd eat this and drink my tea with my pinkie up, just like the English women will do.


Plums are in season now, and when used unpeeled, they leave a nice reddish purplish tinge on the cake.
Maybe you can try that, but the fragrance not that nice la, but the colour's nice.
