About this recipe: A change from a regular fruit cake! This cake has a great texture and is pleasing to the eye! You can use any fruit you choose, but the best are nectarines, peaches, apples, pears or pineapple slices.
Use enough fruit to cover the "top" of the cake, depending on which fruit you decide to use.
I was a little concerned when making this cake as the cake mixture was really quite dry, however it turned out tastey. The cake is heavier than a normal sponge cake but I guess the juice from the fruit and the liquid of the butter/sugar mixture have added to the moisture. It's lovely with ice cream. - 01 Sep 2013
