We’re going to friends house for dinner. G wants to bring one of his favorite cakes….nectarine. This is G’s favorite fruit. I have a feeling if you asked everyone in the country their favorite fruit, no one but G would say nectarines. That’s one of the sweet things about him.
This cake is super simple. I love exploring the Internet, looking for good ideas. This is one from several years ago. On-line, it’s called Plum Torte. See, I can never leave well enough alone.
1/2 cup softened butter
¾ cup granulated sugar plus 1 to 2 tablespoons to be sprinkled on before baking
Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl of an electric mixer until fluffy and light in color.
Add eggs, 1 at a time, scraping down after each addition.
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon kosher salt
Combine flour, baking powder and salt in small bowl.
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mix until just combined.
Spread in a lightly greased 9 inch springform pan.
Nectarines. 2 to 3 in all depending on nectarine size, sliced
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Arrange cut nectarines on top of batter, skin side up, covering batter.
Sprinkle with lemon juice, then the cinnamon and then the remaining sugar.
Bake at 350 degrees, until cake is golden, approximately 45 to 50 minutes. Cool before serving.
