My cake is very simple and easy to bake, it’s my gratefulness to God. It looks beautiful, moist, healthy, great flavour of mango and blueberries with sour cream. Let’s bake!!!
200 g plain flour
2 Tsp baking powder
1/2 Tsp salt
300 g sour cream
215 g castor sugar
3 extra-large eggs
3 Tsp grated lemon zest
1/2 Tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup olive oil
200 g blueberries
1 small cheek mango
60 ml lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and flour the ring pan. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl. Blend together mango and lemon juice in a blender. In mixing bowl beat sour cream, sugar, eggs, lemon zest, vanilla, and oil.
Slowly beat the dry ingredients ( a ladle at a time) into the wet ingredients. Add blueberries, and pureed mango into the batter. Fold them very gently into the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 50-60 minutes, or until a cake tester placed in the center comes out clean.
When the cake is done, allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before flipping out onto a cooling rack. Carefully place on a plate. Cool. Then transfer to cake container to keep cake moist and for later.
Note: You might need less or more time as oven vary. You may use any fruits of your choice. You might want to add yoghurt in with sour cream. Then you might need to adjust the flour. The batter has to have the right consistency.
