This is based on Rachel Allen’s recipe for Dutch Apple cake and her variation for adding pears and raspberries.
For 10-12 portions you need:
175g caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
125g plain flour
grated rind of an orange
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
4 ripe pears, peeled and cut into 6ths
1/2 pack frozen raspberries
Begin by whisking the sugar and eggs together till thick and frothy. Meanwhile melt the butter with the milk and then slowly whisk in to the egg mixture. Add the flour, baking powder and orange rind. Pour in to a lined baking tin. Lay the pears and raspberries on the top. Bake for 10 mins at 200 degrees then for a further 30 mins at 180 degrees.
