The Daring Bakers July 2011 Challenge:


Jana of Cherry Tea Cakes was our July Daring Bakers’ host and she challenged us to make Fresh Frasiers inspired by recipes written by Elisabeth M. Prueitt and Chad Robertson in the beautiful cookbook Tartine.

Winter time here in New Zealand so no strawberries therefore kiwifruit it was – what else for a kiwi Daring Baker. I made a chocolate chiffon cake ( just with baking cocoa – not the real thing – hence it is quite light in colour). Flavoured the syrup with coffee liquer.

It turned out really well but maybe I could have cut the kiwifruit slices in half for a more refined look – mine looks very rustic! Tasted devine.

Thanks Jana for the challenge

Recipe is here


  1. The kiwi fruit is so beautiful inside that I was sure it would make beautiful Fraisiers, and yours looks amazing. Next time I gotta make a chocolate chiffon!

  2. I agree with Renata, the Kiwi look so beautiful and appetizing
    I will have to make a chcolate chiffon next time too..
    I love your blog name by the way :)

  3. Mmmmm! Now wishing I had done a chocolate version. Yours looks very yummy! I love the coffee infusion too.

  4. That's a very pretty kiwi cake! Great job on this month's DB challenge!

  5. Love love everything in here...well done on the challenge
