I recently found a collection of summer fruit recipes on The Mill House Kitchen blog (via Facebook). I would be happy to make all of them, but the one I chose first is the Melt and Mix Summer Fruit Cake (Recipe No. 10). It was the perfect recipe for using up two clingstone peaches in my fruit bowl that were not that nice for eating due to being rather dry.
Here is a look inside the cake:
The cake was beautifully light and moist, and was a wonderful vehicle for the fruit (which might otherwise have been wasted). My cake took 45 minutes, not 30, to bake, but otherwise I had no problems with the recipe.
This cake would also be lovely in winter with poached winter fruits, as the authors suggest.
