Basic butter cake with the goodness of fresh spring fruits.
Ingredients
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup brown sugar + more for sprinkling on top
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup strawberries (quartered)
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • ⅓ teaspoon cinnamon powder (for sprinkling-optional)
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 F (180 degree C).
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together in a bowl.
  3. In another bowl, beat the butter and sugar until the sugar has melted and the mixture turns fluffy.
  4. Mix in the egg, milk and vanilla until just combined. Don't worry if it turns lumpy- it will get smooth once you add in the flour.
  5. Add the flour mixture slowly, a spoon at a time, and fold till all the ingredients are just combined and the batter is smooth.
  6. Pour the mixture into a greased cake pan, and top with the strawberries & blueberries.
  7. Sprinkle some sugar and cinnamon (if using) on the fruits and bake for 10 minutes at 350 F.
  8. Reduce the temperature to 325F and bake for another 50-55 minutes, or till the edges are brown and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean,
  9. Cool & cut into wedges.
