150g butter, melted

2 eggs

1 cup sugar

2 cups of fresh fruit (whatever is in season)

2 cups of plain flour

2 teaspoons of baking powder

2 teaspoons of cinnamon

Preheat oven to 160C.

Mix together butter, eggs and sugar in a large bowl.

Add most of the fruit(keep enough slices for decorating the top), flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Stir with a wooden spoon to combine, then pour mixture into a lined 20 cm springform cake tin.

Add thin slices of the leftover fruit to the top of the cake.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

Allow to cool in tin. Sprinkle with icing sugar to serve if you wish and a good dollop of natural yoghurt, creme fraiche or cream.
