Strawbwerry Apricot Oat Cake with Chia Seeds

This is a much delayed post that I had promise many awhile back. Sincere apologies! Anyway, its always the usual story that I'm always on IG and feel free to come say hi when you are there. As I will be posting less here in my blog sphere unless required. :P Anyway, today's recipe Strawberry Apricot Oat cake with Chia Seeds is really an impromptu recipe that I came up so as to clear off those over stocked fruits that I always impulsively buy every time. :P But the outcome was great, think I will bake it again, perhaps with a different fresh fruit topping.



Ingredients for Strawberry Oat Cake: (Makes one 9x5" loaf or two 7x3.5" loaves)
114g unsalted butter, room temperature
90g caster sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
100g cake flour
40g oat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp non fat Greek yoghurt (or any plain yoghurt)
8 large strawberries, halved
8 ripe apricots, halved and seed removed
1 tbsp Organic Chia Seeds
  • Preheat the oven to 170C, grease and line the baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In the mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the egg one at a time and mix after each addition.
  • Add in salt and vanilla extract, mix well.
  • Add in the Greek yoghurt,and mix again. Lastly shift in the cake flour and mix well.
  • Add the oat flour and Chia seeds last and stir till no lumps.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pans.
  • Place the strawberry and apricot halves on top of the batter, alternating one fruit after another.
  •  
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 38-40 minutes or till the cake tester comes out clean.
  • Once baked, remove from oven and let cool on rack completely before slicing.
Showing off the moist soft interior with the fruits still soft and juicy. Love the tender crumbs, so delicious! As I mention earlier, you are most welcome to change the fruit topping to any kind of your preference. :)

Also want to take this opportunity to wish Singapore a very Happy 48th Birthday today! Actually made a strawberry yoghurt dessert in lieu of the occasion, haha!
This is just layering of Passion fruit Greek yoghurt and fresh cut strawberries. The red and white is just like our Singapore flag! Yay! Anyway, have a great long weekend peeps! 

Cheers to Singapore and many more great years to come and prosper!
