It has been a year since coronavirus, I have not created and bake a cake for my family members. No more celebration blowing cake and taking pictures of cake with candle. Tempted to eat a cake and I don’t have a smaller cake container to bake in.
My thickened cream will expire in 3 days, some berries puree leftover too needed to get rid, and a bit left orange juice too. Remembered that I still have half bottle of tahini in the fridge, best use. My eggs too are going to be expired in 4 days.
Today, it magic abracadabra, fingers crossed that the cake is edible in term of taste and looks great. Surprise, it turn out moist, soft, tasty and had some swirl of berries puree, sweet, savoury, bitter and nutty flavour. Let’s bake the magic cake!!!

200 g castor sugar, plus 2 Tbs
200 g yoghurt
125 ml vegetables oil
100 ml orange juice
100 ml thickened cream

Note: If you are allergic to tahini, please don’t add in. You may use olive oil instead of vegetables oil. You can reduce the amount of sugar by omitting orange juice.
