Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slightly spray/ grease one of the following, a standard cake pan, 9-11" spring form pan or a single pie plate 9 to 11 inches in diameter.
  • Combine butter with sugar and eggs stir until smooth. Add milk vanilla and salt. Combine flour and stir with a spoon be sure not to over mix.
  • This cake is easy but too much mixing and it will not be a buttery delicate texture. Evenly spread mixture into your prepared pan.
  • Layer the fruit on top as you'd like in any pattern. Traditionally apples, pears, plums etc. are halved and placed on top plums, "pit side" up.
  • Apples peeled, sometimes sliced core side down. You can brush the top gently with additional butter if you'd like, Sprinkle sugar on top and bake for 30-40 minutes.
  • This depends on how moist your fruit is as well as your oven. Sprinkle with powdered sugar or cinnamon or both.
