Project: Forest fruit cake bar


I love working with fruit in cakes and of course eating them. Lately I was craving for blueberry muffins and I usually make them with (deepfrozen) blueberries because it’s super convenient and yet still tasty as well. And a lot cheaper than buying fresh ones.

But I ran out of blueberries and only had a bag of forest fruit left in the freezer. Which also has blueberries in it along: raspberry, blackcurrant, red berries and black berries.

Not feeling too much in running to the store to buy blueberries (usually pricey) I have decided to make: forest fruit bars!

And lets face it, nothing taste better with your cup of tea or coffee with a freshly homemade treat!

Ik werk graag met fruit in gebak maar het liefst het eten ervan, yum! En ik had laatst zo,n trek in bosbessen muffins en ik maak ze meestal met (diepvries) bosbessen, want deze kun je heel lang in de vriezer bewaren en blijven toch lekker!  

Maar de bevroren bosbesjes waren op en ik had slechts een zak met bosvruchten over in de vriezer. Die overigens ook bos bessen hadden met daarnaast: frambozen, zwarte bessen, rode bessen en bramen.

Omdat ik geen zin om naar de winkel te rennen om bosbessen te kopen heb ik besloten om gebruik te maken van deze bosvruchten: bosvruchten koeken!

En laten we eerlijk zijn, niets smaakt beter dan een kopje thee of koffie met eigen vers gebakken traktatie!

Da Recipe:  65 gr butter (room temp.), 2 handful of fresh or deep frozen fresh fruits, 225 gr flour, 1 tbsp. baking powder, 130 gr sugar, 1 egg, 250 ml yogurt or milk, pinch of salt, 100 gr. icing sugar + 1,5 tbsp of lemon juice

It does taste better with a cappuccino c: 

Da Steps: 

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C degrees and grease + line a baking tin with baking paper. 
  2. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy and beat the egg, yogurt and lemon juice into this butter mixture. 
  3. Sieve the flour and baking powder and add it into the butter mixture. 
  4. Pour the cake mixture into the baking tin. Divide the fruits on top of this cake mixture. 
  5. Bake the cake for 40 minutes or until you see the cake is goldenbrown on top. 
  6. Let the cake cool down completely in its baking tin. 
  7. Icing: in the bowl goes the icing sugar + lemon juice and stir until you have a smooth texture. 
  8. Sprinkle the icing randomly over the cake and let it set. 
  9. Cut the cake in nice rectangle/squares and serve!
Good luck!
