Wild fruit cake

Ingredients
  • 250g butter, softened
  • 250g sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 250g flour
  • 6 pears or apples
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Using a whisk or a mixer, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, to the butter. Once you have added one egg, whisk, and wait to add the next one until butter is once again smooth and the egg is incorporated.
  4. Add the flour by folding it into the butter with a spatula. Once fully mixed, set the bowl aside.
  5. Peel the fruits and remove the cores. Cut the fruit into thin slices.
  6. Rub a baking dish with butter and sprinkle it with sugar so it sticks to the butter, evenly coating the dish.
  7. Add the dough to the dish and spread the fruit on top of it in a single layer.
  8. Sprinkle a bit more sugar on top and bake the cake for 30-35 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
  • Tips

    Instead of apples or pear, you can use plums, cherries, or raspberries. Serving the cake with a bit of whipped cream, a spoonful of crème fraiche, or a dollop of ice cream only makes it more scrumptious.
