Oven temperature: 200°C Time range: 40 minutes
Some of the first nectarines from this year have now landed themselves in our grocery stores and since it’s pretty unusual that nectarines are used in cakes I decided to make a simple one with a bunch of nectarines in it. When looking at the outcome of it I will say that not everyone will love this cake, personally I did not like the taste that the nectarines gave me, but everyone else in my family likes them so I’ll guess you have to figure that one out for yourself.
2 ½ deciliter of sugar
3 deciliter of wheat flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda / baking powder
2 teaspoons of vanilla sugar or some drops of vanilla aroma
1 deciliter of water
3 deciliters of finely chopped nectarines (you need around 2 -3 nectarines)
(For the baking pan you need some brown sugar, perhaps a table spoon or two. You also need some butter and breadcrumbs.)
- Grease a baking pan with butter and pour some breadcrumbs over the butter. Make sure that the breadcrumbs are widely spread over the grease so that the dough doesn’t attach to the pan. If you are like me and don’t really like a lot of breadcrumbs you can do what I did and mix the breadcrumbs with some brown sugar, otherwise you can just go with breadcrumbs only. The pan you use should be able to contain about 1½ liters.
- Then you start with the dough. Whisk the eggs together with the sugar.
- Then add all the other ingredients except the nectarines and whisk.
- Now you add the nectarines and whisk everything once more with a spoon. When that is done you simply pour the dough into the baking pan and then you put it into the middle of the oven for about 40 minutes.
