Boysenberry Honey Yoghurt Cake


It’s been a beautiful weekend out at the beach, I’m glad I was able to spend it at home surfing, running classes and squeezing in some baking too. After two months back and forth to Sydney, it is heaven to be home again for a week, it’s so quiet here compared to our office in Parramatta where the noise never seems to stop, it makes me appreciate where I live, there is not a car to be heard after dark after the beach goers have gone home. No street lights either which means great star gazing with no light pollution and the frequent sighting of shooting stars….bliss

For my sweet NZ post this month I am submitting a boysenberry honey yoghurt cake. Frances is hosting this months collection of goodies on her blog Bakeclub where you will find a round up of kiwi yummyness at the end of the month so do pop over.

200g SR Flour
100g ground almonds
150g liquid honey
250ml plain yoghurt
1tsp baking soda
100ml canola oil
3 small free range eggs
100g boysenberries, fresh or frozen
Glaze Ingredients
1 tbsp lime juice and zest of 1 lime
3 tbsp icing sugar

Preheat oven to 180C and grease and flour a 22-24cm cake tin.
Place all the dry ingredients into a large bowl.
In another bowl whisk all the wet ingredients, including honey and eggs together.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and briefly whisk together.
Spoon half the batter into the cake tin, sprinkle with boysenberries over the batter then pour over the rest of the batter to cover berries.
Bake for 45 minutes or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
Remove the cake from the oven once cooked and allow it to cool.
Whisk together the icing sugar and lime zest and juice to make the glaze. And pour over the cooled cake.

  9. Beautiful. I bet it would be wonderful with other berries. I don’t see boysenberries too often, is the only reason I say that.

      Yes any berries would be good and you must be moving into berry season soon over there. Boysenberry and Blackberries are my favourite…..don’t tell hubby he works for a strawberry cooperative :0)

  16. Your comments on appreciating the peace and calm of where you live, and the possibilities for stargazing, greeted me on my first day back in New Zealand after a trip home to Europe. I absolutely loved being in the cities, but it is just so heartwarming to be back here, enjoying the quiet and catching up with food blogs (stars not out yet!). Hope to catch up with you soon. I love the sound of this cake. Always keen on a good yoghurt cake.
