3 eggs

1 tsp baking powder

- Line the bottom of a 8” springform cake tin with parchment paper and grease the sides

- Transfer the batter into your cake tin and smooth off the top.

- Cut the chosen fruit into half or quarters and place on top of the cake batter, covering the top.

- Sprinkle on 2 tbsp of  sugar

- Bake in the oven for 45-50 mins until golden brown and sponge baked all the way through.

- To give the cake a shine you can brush the top of the cake with melted apricot jam. Or you can make a thin icing with icing sugar and water and drizzle over the top.

- The cake can be served warm with custard, or leave to cool, drizzle with icing and serve with a nice dollop of whipped cream
