- 4 Eggs
- 160g Caster Sugar
- 125ml Butter – melted and cooled or 125 ml flavoureless oil
- 250g Wheat White Flour – sifted
- 1,5 tsp Baking Powder
- Lemon zest, Orange zest or Vanilla Extract… whatever you like
- Icing Sugar to finish
- 500-600g fresh or frozen seasonal fruits
Preheat an oven to 175C.
Sift flour with baking powder into a bowl. Separate egg whites and egg yolks. Whisk the egg whites in another bowl to soft peaks and then gradually add caster sugar – still mixing – spoon by spoon.
Add egg yolks one by one until mixture is well combined. Still mixing, add melted butter little by little.
Add sifted flour with baking powder in three batches. Fold carefully using a spatula after each batch. Be careful not to ‘kill’ all the air trapped in the egg mixture.
Transfer into a lined baking tin. Throw fruits of your choice on the top – push them slightly into the batter.
Bake for 50 – 60 mins or to ‘dry skewer’.
Take out from the oven, transfer to a cooling rack. Let in cool, sprinkle with icing sugar.
