Kiwi Cake

Kiwi Cake

  • 1.5 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 stick butter
  • 2 kiwis, pureed and strained.
  • 1 drop green food coloring
1) Puree and strain 2 peeled kiwis
2) combine dry ingredients. Mix in eggs, melted butter, food coloring.
3) Put in a 9x13 pan in a 350 oven for 20 minutes.

Overall: So this is what happens when I'm bored at home. The idea started when I wanted to make strawberry cupcakes . Then I realized we have a LOT of kiwi's that need to be eaten. Strawberry + Kiwi = YUMMY. So then it turned into kiwi cupcakes with strawberry frosting. I'm not sure why I switched to a 9x13 pan, but these probably would have been better as cupcakes.

While the cupcakes were baking, I went to make the strawberry frosting which was an EPIC FAIL. Not sure why, it just was.

But the cake was alright, I would add more kiwi to the mixture. My cake was a little on the dense side but I might have used the bread flour instead of the all purpose flour because nothing is labeled here. But I would love to play more with these flavors :) So I just added a bit of chocolate frosting on top of mine for kicks.

Great idea! Why was your strawberry frosting an epic fail?

I don't really know, I thought I could use a blender and I was trying to make a yogurt based buttercream based off some online recipes I found, but it just did not want to work. Maybe a blender was a bad idea :P
