Quick Fruit Cake with Compote

It’s Sunday again, yes the Sweet Sunday. Each of us has а child’s memory of dessert that Mom prepared, most often on weekends, sometimes for holidays. The smell of the home made sweet invokes warm memories that make you feel cozy, warm and home again. Especially when it’s winter out. This time I decided to present you the cake recipe, which is my favorite childhood memory. Extremely easy and unpretentious dessert that will be prepared for up to 40 minutes – a fruit cake with compote.

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 count of vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup of oil

  • Break the eggs into the bowl and beat them well until they are foamed. Then add the tea cup of sugar and stir until it starts to melt in the eggs.

Ingredients for Fruit Cake with Compote - pre-baked

  • Just bake the cake in a preheated oven at 170 degrees for about 35 minutes.
  • After removing it from the oven, pour the juice from compote over the dessert. First will seem strange with all this juice around, but after about 15 minutes it will get into the cake.
