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
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.
