This delicious cake can be made with any seasonal fruit. This time I used Apricots. You may wish to use plums, peaches, nectarines, pears, apples, etc. If you don’t have any seasonal fruit, canned fruit is totally fine. Enjoy with softly whipped cream or yoghurt.

  2. Make cinnamon crumble by mixing all ingredients until crumbly.

  3. For the cake, beat Butter and Sugar in a bowl until pale and creamy. Add Eggs, 1 at a time. Add Milk and Flour and mix well to combine. Spoon into the prepared cake tin and smooth the surface.

  4. Arrange the Apricots over the mixture, then scatter over the crumble.
