11/2 cups (210g) flour
140g sugar (2tbs sugar for sprinkling on fruits)
3/4 stick (100g) butter
2 tablespoons (50g) sour cream
1tsp baking powder
1tsp lemon or orange peel (tried both.. prefer lemon tho)
500g fruits (apricots, peaches, pears, cherries, plums, orange, pineapple, or any other fruit not too juicy)
In a strainer place the prepared fruits (pit removed and cut in not too big pieces) sprinkle them with 2 tablespoons of sugar. Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).
Beat butter, sour cream and sugar together.
Add eggs one at a time. Add flavorings. Flour and baking powder and mix until everything is smooth
Butter and flour a baking pan (18x27 cm or 7x11 inch). A round 9 inch will do the same. Place batter in the pan and level nice
Place fruits on top (don’t press). Bake for 60-70 mins. I bake mine 55 mins. But that depends on your oven. Let cool on a rack and sprinkle with sugar if u like…
