Fruity Butter Cake
class="at-above-post addthis_tool" data-url="https://www.anncoojournal.com/fruity-butter-cake/">
When you look at this fruity cake, you may think this is Fruit Pastry Cake that I made last year. Nope! This is actually a butter cake with some fresh fruits added on top and you may notice there is bread flour added in the recipe. I first came across using bread flour for baking is Castella Cake as I always thought bread flour is only meant for making bread. This prove that I was wrong. So when I saw this recipe in a magazine (Mango Butter Cake), I immediately used my leftover bread flour, some fresh strawberries and frozen blueberries that I have to make this Fruity Butter Cake. I have also tweaked the recipe by adding an extra 4 tbsp natural yoghurt as I was afraid that the cake will be very dry as there was no milk in it. This Fruity Butter Cake is quite soft and delicious, not bad at all, I’ll give 4 stars for it.
In order to make a quick bake, I used a cake bar silicone mould from SiliconeMoulds.Com that Sarah sent to me months ago. The cakes look pretty after baked and you can serve them individually, with no messy cutting.

Your mini fruity cakes are gorgeous Ann! Such a great idear to bake them small…so cute ! The person getting them is so lucky!
Jessie, yes is real easy. Some even said you don't have to grease the mould.
Oh my gosh..these look so beautiful! Small and cute! Ann, you are always very creative! 😀
Ann, I don't mind receiving that gift box. The cakes look sooooo cute and so colourful. Mmm…. that's for reminding, I can make this with my mini loaf pan.
Cheah, I'm sure it is also very pretty to use your mini loaf pan with different colour of fruits on it.
These are so pretty – a lovely alternative to cupcakes or muffins.
Thanks Corina! Love your site 🙂
i'm so intrigued by the bread flour in these cakes. And since berry season is just around the corner, i think I'll just have to give these a try.
I used to work with the Japanese govt & guests from Japan always buy me Castella. I didn't quite like it, maybe because they were plain. But with nice ingredients, maybe it's different.
These butter cakes are so cute. Looks just like out from a 5-star bakery, Ann! Thumbs-up! I must sample your baking one of these days 🙂
Shirley, I really hope I can taste the original Castella one day.
Thank you very much for your compliment. Sure no problem if time permits 🙂
I love this fruity-butter cake. The box and the presentation add tons to this treat's appeal!
wow Ann – I just saw your photos on Facebook. They look so pretty. I love little cake bars made in this mould. Very tempted to make some financiers again in mine.
The sliced strawberries on top are genius 🙂
Sarah, Thank you for the silicone moulds that you sent me. I was thinking to use another recipe for this mould again.
Wow!! I love the fact that you used mini cake pan and topped with different kinds of fruits! Beautiful cakes!
Thank Ambika 🙂
using the cake bar mould really does save you the hassle from cutting and they look so good individually!
Wow … so pretty and yummy. Drooling … for a moment I thought its fruit pastry cake.
The fruity buttter cakes are good as gifts for friends. I love the silicone moulds too 🙂 have a few myself and I just baked prune cake in the silicone loaf pan. I bought some from UK and have been baking in them. Love their cute design and easy to wash too ! I must try using bread flour for cake and yea better to add either sour cream or yoghurt to it for a moist texture 🙂
Thanks Elin! Silicone moulds are so easy to use and many people just love using them.

这个食谱不错,因为上次的 fruit pastry 很多人减了糖之后蛋糕变干了。谢谢分享哦 ^_^
Beautiful cakes ! Look refreshing and yummy. Adding bread flour to cake will give more structure to the cake and fruit added won't sink, that's why I also added some bread flour when i made ur fruitcake recipe. 🙂
Angel, Thanks for your info. 🙂
These cake are soooooooo beautiful, Ann! I want to try making them soon! Once I get the ingredients…. Thanks so much for sharing…

Very cute little fruit cakes. Interesting recipe using bread flour as one of the ingredients for butter cake. I like it very much.
Order:- one packet of 6 ( 3 for each flavor) please!
Li Shuan, you sure want to order? hahaa… not sure the fresh fruits can last that long or not. All the way from S'pore to Perth 😀

Oh, this recipe is perfect for me to use my new friand pan, must try out this one day, bookmarked list getting longer, hehehe. I also learnt that bread flour can add into cake after bake the Castella cake ..Lovely gift box!
Sonia, your new friand moulds are so pretty. Very suitable for small cakes.
Lovely as giveaways! Very pretty!
Your fruity butte cake looks so beautiful! Initially I thought the cakes were standard size but they are individual sizes which is nice. It would make a lovely gift too 🙂
lovely little cakes 🙂
These are so pretty – love them
It looks so yammy! Delicious recipe!
哈哈,看照片第一个想到真的是Fruit Pastry cake。^_^这道蛋糕真的是高贵大方~
Looks absolutely stunning!!
Hi Ann, would like to try this cake this weekend. Can I substitute the yoghurt with something else? (I would like to know if this can be done too for the eggless chocolate cake in your blog). Thank you very much!
Ok, thanks for the reply, Ann.
Hi Yin, If you want to milk instead, I'm not very sure whether the cake will be that moist as using yohurt or sour cream. I heard from someone recently butter milk also can be used.
Hi Yin, you can use sour cream or whipping cream for this recipe. I'm afraid the fruits will sink for the eggless chocolate cake because more milk is used in that recipe.
Hi Ann,Thanks for your reply. Can I use milk instead of the yoghurt? For my question on the eggless chocolate cake, I mean can I also substitute the yoghurt with milk or something else?
THanks ann. So for the eggless chocolate cake, I can also substitute the yoghurt with milk instead?
Hi Yin, yes you can 6 extra tablespoons of milk instead of 4 tbsps of yogurt. Remember not to over baked the cake as it will dries up easily.
Hello Ann, i have a punnet of strawberry, not sure whether to try this or your latest rasberry slice recipe… which one you recommend? prefer moist cake 😉
Thank you, Ann.So confirmed this weekend will go for your rasberry slice recipe ^^
Hi Kah Chin,I prefer the rasberry slice recipe. The texture is real soft and moist.
Hihi.. Nice cake.. I just bought a cake loft tray yesterday and wanted to try to bake this beautiful cake. Just wondering, this recipe doesn't call for any baking powder ? Tq
My recipe already stated clearly, no baking powder added.
Hi Ann, I love your blog and recipes that really spur me on to keep baking.In this recipe, it's using icing sugar instead of caster sugar, may I know what's the difference? does it varies in the texture of the cake?michelle
Hi Michelle, I followed the recipe according from the magazine. Think using icing sugar is easier to melt and can shorten the time of beating the batter.
Hii Ann, I want to try your recipe but I don't have the mold like yours. If I make it in square baking pan, what size will be fit with your recipe ? Thank you
Hi Sashy, I think you use a 6 or 7 inch square cake pan. The cake will be lower if you're using a 7 inch cake pan.
if I could get such a gift, I would be in heaven:)))Life and travellingCooking
Hi Ann,for this one recipe, how many mini loaf can u make ?KYM
Hi KYM,I made 12 mini cake bars as shown and there are also some remaining, I just put it into two small square muffin cases but it really depends on your own cake pan.
OMG!drool over it…it's all time fav….your presentation
A big yes for me,would like to take these cakes home!Ann ,is that really easy to remove the cakes from the silicone moulds?Tempting to buy the mould.Cakes are very colourful, you know what,I haven't baked butter cake b4,this recipe is now going to my cooking list,thanks
i like your idea of using those silicon moulds to bake these cos they look gorgeous and decadent! I think they make great gifts too for friends!Love love love your presentation!!
Both flavours seem very delicious, which one should I choose? Ah ha, blueberry one for me please :pI like the silicon mould that u use to bake them, make them look tidy and regular in size, well done!
Thanks Daphne. I love the blueberry one too because the strawberry is a little sour.
