Food and Story

First and foremost, I wish all my Muslim readers
Ramadan Kareem!

Back to my food story :P

It was more than 9 years ago, I came across Fruit Pastry Cake on the net.
Every blogger would have at least baked once and raved about this fruit pastry cake.

I tried looking up on the web, to find out more on fruit pastry cake, or at least why is it named Fruit pastry cake, but my search was futile!!

Hence I give a miss!

Fast forward 9 years on, fruit pastry cake make a comeback!

I still could not find why it has been named that, but this time round, and not wanting to wait another decade, I decided to give this fruit pastry cake a chance.

What fruits are suitable for Fruit pastry cake?

Any fruits actually!!

Many recipes mixed canned fruits like peaches, with some fresh fruits like strawberries.

I chose seasonal fruits to top my fruit pastry cake.

And of course I just have to choose mangoes (my favourite fruit :D ) and blueberries.

hence my fruit pastry cake became Mango and Blueberries Cake!

The aroma of caramelising mango pieces wafting through the oven door, was making me giddy with joy.
I could not wait until I could have a slice.

But I have to let my Mango and Blueberries Cake cool down a bit, before I could eat them!

Mango and Blueberries Cake best eaten...

Immediately!!! :P

Seriously, Mango and Blueberries Cake is best eaten once the cake has cooled down.

But if you have left over Mango and Blueberries Cake, it is best to keep in an air tight container and stack them in refrigerator.

But do not keep them more than 5 days in the refrigerator.

I used big chunky mangoes, and mangoes has lots of 'moisture / water/ juice' in them and they tend to sweat out a bit.

This 'sweating' process will make the cake slightly on the soggy side.

No one likes soggy cake after all, right? :P
