I just can’t resist all the yummy autumn fruits so decided to combine them all in this Autumn fruits cinnamon cake. It’s lovely and moist (and because of all the fruit it’s rather crumbly) and another great cake for a Sunday afternoon, with a cuppa!
It serves about 8-10 with approx 234 – 290 cals per slice.
You will need:
450g of autumn fruits (I used plums, apples and pears) plus some to decorate
85g Sugar (I used half spoon)
170g dairy free spread
255g self raising flour
2 large eggs (Or egg replacer if you prefer)
2 tbsp milk (any will do – I used soya)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Pre-heat the oven to 170C and grease and line a 25cm round loose-bottomed cake tin.
Put the sugar and spread in a bowl and cream until light and fluffy.
Add one egg and whisk it into the batter, then add half the flour and whisk again. Repeat with the other egg and the remainder of the flour.
Then add the cinnamon and milk to slacken the batter a little.
Core and dice the fruit (I didn’t bother peeling the pears and apples but you can if you want to). Add to the mix and fold them in.
Spoon in to the cake tin, spread evenly and then line the top of the cake with finely sliced segments of all the fruit. Sprinkle with a little sugar and cinnamon.
Bake in the oven for 45-60 mins or until a skewer comes out clean. Once it’s ready, remove from the oven and let it cool in the tin for 10 mins then on a wire rack.
Slice and enjoy with a cuppa!
