Cape Gooseberry Cake

Ingredients to make Cape Gooseberry Cake

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup almond meal (ground almonds)
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup Milk
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • ¾ cup cape gooseberries washed and wiped dry

How to make Cape Gooseberry Cake

  1. Grease, line and dust one 8 inch round cake pan. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C
  2. Take about 14 cape gooseberries, cut them into half. Place the cut upper halves on a clean kitchen towel so that the juice is absorbed. Chop the lower halves and the remaining berries into small pieces.
  3. Beat the white of the eggs till stiff. Add sugar. Add yolks. Beat further till fluffy.
  4. Melt butter in a saucepan. Add butter, milk and vanilla essence to the egg mix.
  5. Whisk together flour, almond meal, salt and baking powder.
  6. Add flour mix to the egg mix and stir gently until well incorporated. Fold in chopped berries (not the ones cut into half).
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees C for 15 minutes.
  9. Remove the cake pan from the oven and quickly arrange the halved berries with cut side down on the cake.
  10. Return the cake to the oven and bake further for about 20 minutes or till a toothpick inserted in the center come out clean. Tent the cake loosely with a foil if the top browns too fast.
  11. Let the cake rest in the pan for 15 minutes. Remove and cool in the wire rack. Slice next day.
  12. Serve plain, or, with a dollop of whipped cream or with ice cream.

My Tip:

Use fresh seasonal Cape Gooseberries for the recipe.
