Honeydew melon cake

Even with many things going on at one go, sometimes life does get boring. You agree? I do actually. Maybe because I am bored with the day in day out daily routine. Rushing through the jam back and forth from work, then the never ending house work and blogging is now part of what I do though I am really not obsessed with it like the rest who can blog daily. Whatever, let me speak about myself instead of bitching about others. Now, out the boredom, came out this Honeydrew Melon Cake. Don't ask me how did I do it, okay, I did refer to a couple of recipes for a fruity cake (Mango Cheesecake) or dessert (Pandan Poached Pear, Saffron Cinnamon Pear, Watermelon Milk Sorbet, Pineapple Bread Pudding, Grapefruit Coconut Jelly Thin Apple Pie) and the rest is history in nava-k's history book. Now, how shall I describe this cake? Akin cousins between pudding and cake, dense as well soft, bitsy of honeydew pieces that melts as you bite in. By the way, do you know that fruits can be used for savoury dishes too? Papaya Sardine Curry, Pineapple Salted Fish Curry & Mango Chutney. Yes please!

400g honey dew melon - remove skin and seeds and chopped
75g butter - melted
2 eggs
75g sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
125 all purpose flour
1/2 tsp nutmeg powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
Combine and stir butter, milk and vanilla together.
Keep aside.
Sift flour, baking powder and nutmeg.
Keep aside. 
Cream eggs and sugar till light and fluffy.
Stir in butter milk mixture bit by bit. 
Gently fold in sifted flour and chopped melon
Bake at 175C for 1 hour until the top is nice and brown and cake is set.
For a glossy finish, dust some icing sugar atop.
Show some love by trending alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!
