Tangy Raspberry Cake

As you can tell, I’ve been having a very berry summer! And I’m enjoying it to the fullest. While I’ve been mostly cooped up indoors – much to my dismay – due to the unbearable heat, my tummy has been one happy fellow, gorging on lots of berries, mangoes and pineapple. I think it’s safe to say that my obsession with fruits is being well-fuelled. πŸ™‚

What makes me happier is that my passion for baking is flourishing, thanks to this berry mania! First I baked those Petit Fours that were just delish, then the Lemon-Blueberry cake that is out-of-the-world, the Mango-Strawberry tart that needs no description and now this fabulous Tangy Raspberry Cake that will blow your mind. The baker in me is very pleased.

Here’s what you need to make The Foodscape’s Tangy Raspberry Cake in your home.

  • All Purpose Flour – 1 and 1/2 cups
  • Sugar – 1 cup
  • Salt – 1/2 tsp
  • Baking Powder – 1 and 1/2 tsp
  • Eggs – 2
  • Vegetable Oil – 1/2 cup
  • Juice of 1 Orange, freshly squeezed
  • Rind of 1 Lemon, grated
  • Fresh Raspberries – 200 g

Here’s how you make it:

  • Preheat your oven at 160 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes.
  • In a bowl, beat the eggs until fluffy, then add in the oil and orange juice and mix well.
  • In another bowl, lightly sift together flour, salt, sugar and baking powder.
  • Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients and blend until it forms a smooth batter.
  • Add in lemon rind and give it a final mix.
  • Grease and line a loaf-tin with parchment paper. Pour in half of the batter, then place a few fresh raspberries on top and finish off with the remaining batter. Once all the batter is poured in, sprinkle a few more raspberries on the top and bake for about 35-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

This is one of those cakes that everyone loves serving at breakfasts, brunches, tea parties and the like. It’s that perfect breath of fresh air from all those heavy chocolatey treats that your guests and family will love you for. It’s also the perfect cake to savour while you enjoy a cup of coffee. It’s that homely cake that puts you at ease, helps you relax and gives you the warm fuzzies!

It’s tangy, sweet and zesty and sweet some more. It is oozing with flavour, hearty and delicious. The citrus-y tartness from the orange juice and lemon rind are well complimented by the sharp flavour of the raspberries and the buttery sweetness of the cake. It’s truly a cake made in heaven!

This is the kind of cake I love baking – moist, airy and filled with the goodness of berries; the kind of cake that I eat a little too much of on my cheat day. Trust me, it’s that good! πŸ˜€

Chocolate and Berry Canapes

IMG_1985

I am a huge fan of dessert. I love anything sweet, though I cannot have too much of it. More than eating desserts, I love making them. For the eating bit, I’m surrounded with foodies who have massive sweet cravings! I have a lot of patience when it comes to making precise sweet dishes that are sure to make everyone crazy. However, every once in a while, I like to cheat too. I mean, who doesn’t love a dessert that can be put together in minutes and still make everyone crazy?

Thus, I present to you – Chocolate and Berry Canapes

I had this pack of ready-to-eat canape shells and I had no idea what to do with them. I first thought I’d fill them with a tangy tuna salad but then that would fit into the category of ‘usual’. I wanted to do something different, something innovative. Suddenly it hit me – I had a whole lot of berries lying in my fridge and an untouched jar of Nutella too! In that moment, I knew exactly what would be for dessert that night.

So this is what you’ll need.

Some canape shells, a nice big jar of nutella, some strawberries (washed and cut in halves) and raspberries (washed).

So all you’ve got to do is hold the canape shell daintily in your hand, spoon nutella into the shell, about halfway, and then place your favorite fruit on it. And the best bit, pop it right into your mouth! Gosh, thats delicious!

You can also fill the canape shells with a thick custard and top it with fruits or you can fill it with chocolate and top it with nuts or butterscotch chips, any way you like them. A little tip: don’t make these ahead of time because the canape shells will get soggy. Instead, serve them as soon as you’ve made them.

So if you’ve got last minute plans of having friends over, you know you’ve got dessert covered!
