A cake for Sunday....nectarines bundt cake

Today a quick and fruity cake, perfect for Sunday afternoon tea or coffee.

The cake was a spontaneous creation of too much yogurt in our refrigerator, some nectarines and limes left overs. All the ingredients I like, so I was thinking why not put them all together and see what will come out. The outcome was perfect, the cake is moist but light in taste in the same time. Not too sweet and very fruity. The preparation was easy as always and I found the cake quite light....if you can call a cake light of course....

Nectarines bundt cake
  • 2-3 nectarines
  • 200 g butter (softened)
  • 150 g sugar
  • vanilla sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 lime (zest and juice)
  • 5-6  tablespoons Greek yogurt 
  • 300 g flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
Preheat the oven 180 C and grease a bundt cake form. Wash the nectarines and cut them in small cubes, set aside. In a bowl mix together softened butter, sugar and vanilla sugar till light in colour and fluffy. Add eggs, one at the time mix in between, add the yogurt and mix everything good together, Wash the lime, take the zest and squeeze the juice out, add it to the butter-egg mixture, combine well. Finally add the sifted flour and baking powder, mix well till everything is well combined and you are having a smooth and silky batter. Gently steer in the nectarines. Pour in the batter into the baking dish and bake for 30-40 minutes till golden brown (make the stick test). Take it out of the oven, let it cool on a cooling rack for 15-20 minutes, then carefully take it out of the form. Decorate it with powdered sugar or sugar glaze (powdered sugar and lime juice). 

There was quite an amount of batter...so I divided it between 2 bundt forms, a standard one and a small one. Always good to have something extra to share with friends or neighbors...
