Keik me Fraules – Strawberry cake (κέικ με φράουλες)6 comments May 30th, 2009 | By Tobias | Category: Breakfast, Desserts and Sweets, Recipes
The Greeks are not known for their breakfast. They do not really eat breakfast this is as well the reason why you don’t really find breakfast in Greek coffee shops. Except in touristic coffee shops on touristic islands. Having said that, there are exceptions of course. One of them is the “keik” a soft cake.
As strawberries are in season I decides to so a cake with strawberries. I got inspired to bake this “keik” when reading the Kali Orexi blog.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 40 minutes
- 1 cup of flour
- 1/2 cup of Greek yoghurt
- 1/2 cup of soft butter
- 3/4 cup of brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tea spoon of baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- a pack of vanilla
- 1 cup of strawberries, sliced
Pre heat the oven to 200 degrees centigrade.
Put the butter in to a big bowl and add the sugar. Whip the butter with a whisk until it blends well with the sugar.
Add one egg after the other while stirring well.
While continuous stirring the mixture of the bowl add the baking powder, the salt and the vanilla. Spoon by spoon add the yoghurt.
Now carefully add the flour while you continuously stir the mixture.
Finally add the sliced strawberries.
Pour the mixture into a buttered baking form. Put into the oven and bake for 40 minutes. You may want to reduce the heat towards the end of the baking time. Check the colour of the cake.
Let the cake cool down before removing from the baking form.
