This cake always goes down well and is requested often. It's so easy to remember as it's equal measures of butter, sugar and flour. If you're in a hurry shove all the ingredients for the cake in a bowl and cream together before you bake it. Use any seasonal fruit you like.
At 69 and 3 days (and male) I have never cooked a cake in my life. One of my daughters left (her) 3 of my grandchildren (twins girls 7 and grandson 6) to look after for a couple of hours, my wife was out and they wanted to make cakes. We made this recipe and decanted it into 12 individual moulds. 20 minutes later a total success. Delicious. Even my wife was suitably impressed when she returned. - 03 Aug 2012
