Summer Fruit Bundt Cake Recipe
Summer Fruit Bundt Cake
This is the most yummy summer cake filled with lots of fresh fruit.
Here is my slice. The fruit has moved enough to be evenly spaced from top to bottom. The blueberries don’t sink very much so placing the raspberries in the middle kept the fruit to cake balance working well.
- 225g butter
- 450g golden caster sugar
- 4 medium eggs
- 350g plain flour
- 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 250ml plain or vanilla yogurt
- 3 tsp vanilla extract- vanilla is gorgeous with the fruit
- 1 tbsp of lemon juice
- 1 small punet of raspberries (200g)
- 1 small punet of blueberries (150g)
You can also use blackberries.
Strawberries didn’t work very well in the cake but work very well served with the cake.
I find using the ingredients at room temperature makes the cake work better. Plus it’s easier to beat them together (especially the butter).
- Melt a tablespoon of butter in a pan or microwave and using a pastry brush, brush the melted butter into the tin making sure you cover everything. Dust the tin with flour. Dusting the tin with flour will help show if you missed any bits.
- Preheat the oven to gas 160 c
- Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
- Add the eggs one at a time, mix in well.
- In a separate bowl, measure and sieve out the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
- Pour in the yoghurt, the extract and the lemon juice into the creamed ingredients and mix well.
- Sift in the flour in a bit at a time. Mix this slowly until all the flour has disappeared.
- Pour just over half the mix into the greased and floured tin. Push into any nooks and crannies! Lightly tap the tin on a hard surface to get rid of any air bubbles.
- With the mixture in the tin push the raspberries in gently so they are half submerged in the mixture. You don’t want them break before they are baked. In the half left in the bowl stir in the blueberries. Add the blueberry mixture into the tin.
- Bake in the centre of the oven for about 1 hour 15 minutes and until a skewer comes out clean. The best trick for seeing that is completely done is that the cake will start to pull inwards away from the metal tin when it’s done.
- Leave the cake to cool before removing from the tin and placing the other way up on a cooling wrack.
The raspberries in the bottom half before adding the blueberry half on top.
Serve the bundt when still slightly warm as the warm fruit is just lovely, especially when you add a little cream and fresh berries. Yum yum.
Cup of tea and a slice of cake. Fab!
