Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350. Butter a 9" springform cake pan and lightly dust with flour .
  • In small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In large bowl, with a spatula, cream together the butter and all but 2 tblsp of the sugar. Add the egg, milk, lemon zest and vanilla.
  • Stir in the flour mixture and mix with a spatula until smooth. Transfer batter to the pan. Cover the surface of the batter with the fruit, pressing the fruit slightly into the batter. Sprinkle with remaining sugar.
  • (If using plums, mix the extra sugar with about 1/2 tsp cinnamon and toss the plums in the mixture, reserving a little to sprinkle on top. Also, a bit of lemon zest tossed with the plums gives the cake a nice zesty flavor.)
  • Bake for 10 minutes at 350, then reduce to 325 and bake for another 50-60 minutes, until golden brown and firm to the touch.
  • Cool in the pan for 15 min., then unmold and cool completely on a rack.

    Hi this recipe sounds sooooo good. All I'm missing is real butter. I have some peaches and cherries that are getting a little too soft for me to eat in the fridge so I think I might bake em up in this cake instead. Thanks for sharing!
