    ellie_'s Note:

    Delicious way to use summer fruits. Although you can use frozen fruits, I like to use fresh summer fruit in this cake. My favorites are peaches, apricots and plums. Original recipe was printed in Bon Appetit (August, 1981).

      Yum! This cake is so moist and tasty. I used fresh peaches and plums, but omitted the coconut since I'm not a fan. The result was stupendous! I will certainly make this cake again.

      This cake is so good. I bought peaches to put in this cake, but when I cut them up, they were not ripe and had no flavor. I had a bag of mixed berries in the freezer (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries) so I decided to try that instead. It was delicious! Next time I will leave out the raisins. Just a personal preference.

      This is a moist and delicious cake! I didn't change a thing other than making it in two 8x8 pans so I could have one to take to a friend. Thank you!
