This is a really tasty, dead simple dessert cake, first located in its wheaty version in a childrens' cookery book. It has been consumed with enthusiasm by persons of all ages. You can vary it by using different types of fruit and different toppings. My favourite is apples, with cinnamon and sugar on top. Peaches, with a water icing drizzled over the top while the cake is still hot, is also a very nice combination. (Water icing is icing sugar mixed with cold water to make a dribbly consistency).
- Prep: 15 mins
- Cook: 40 mins
1Melt butter in a medium-sized saucepan, then remove from the heat.
2Add sugar, vanilla and eggs and beat well.
3Add dry ingredients (not the fruit!) and mix well.
4Pour into a buttered and 'floured' flan dish (use pikelet and waffle mix or cake mix to do the flouring).
5Place selected fruit on top, and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mix if you want it.
6Bake at 180C for 45 - 60 minutes or until well-risen, firm and golden brown.
7Serve warm or cold from the dish, with whipped cream or similar.
