Airy Fruit Cake

Light, airy, moist cakes with fruit are best in the summer time! Any seasonal fruit will go well with this recipe! While making it I completely forgot about brambles that we picked with my friend and her kids before. Often happens when making something spontaneously and quickly as a guest. Brambles and apricots is one of the combinations I’d use here.
Happy baking!:)
Serves 9-12
Takes 1 hr + cooling (prep – 20 mins, baking – 40 mins)


200 g unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
150 g greek yogurt, at room temperature
1 1/2 cup plain flour
zest & juice from 4 small limes
1/4 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
2 bananas
2 large apples


Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F. Butter and flour a medium-sized baking pan/dish.

Beat up the eggs, sugar and butter using a hand/stand mixer until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Start with low speed, gradually switch to high. Add the yogurt and beat on high speed for more 3 minutes. Add the flour, lime juice and zest, soda and salt. Start beating the mixture on low speed and then shifting to medium-high, about 2-3 minutes.

Cut the bananas into halves lengthwise. Core and slice the apples. Drizzle all fruit with some lime or lemon juice (to prevent browning).

Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish. Arrange the fruit on top by lightly pressing them into the batter. Bake about 35-40 minutes until fragrant and the toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!:)
