Vanilla Baking Mix
250g ish halved and stoned - stone fruit ripe
150g butter OR 100g coconut oil and 50g coconut cream
2 eggs
1tsp baking powder
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup thick vanilla custard

This is another idea I nicked off the website. I used peaches instead of apricots due to having some over ripe ones on hand, and our vanilla mix instead of the dry ingredients. I had no idea on how this would turn out as you add custard to the cake before you cook it… turned out beautifully.

I made my own custard using coconut cream in my thermomix (7 minutes! you just chuck in all the ingredients and turn it on!)

SO you can make your own by swapping out the milk for coconut milk, and the sugar for what ever alternative you want.

I didn’t read the recipe right either and put all my fruit in the middle and left nothing for the top. It was really nice though! i was pleasantly surprised how well it turned out.




1.Heat oven to 180C. Grease and line a 20cm square cake tin
2.Cut the fruit into segments or halves and place in a bowl. If your fruit is really ripe you dont need to sprinkle any sugar over it. Actually its up to you totally if you want to sprinkle sugar over the fruit or not. Either way, set it aside.
3.Cream the butter untill light and creamy. IF you are using the DAIRY FREE option, then whip the coconut oil and cream together untill well whipped.
4.Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well between each
5.Mix the vanilla baking mix and the baking powder together then fold into the butter/oil mixture with 1/2 cup of the custard
6.Spoon half of the cake mix into the tin, then arrange half of the fruit on top. Dollop the rest of the custard over, then the spread the rest of the cake mix over that. Finish wirth the rest of the fruit, gently pressing into the cake mix
7.Bake in the oven for 35 min untill a skewer comes out clean
8.Leave cake to cool in tin for about 15 min before removing. Cake is delicous by its self, or you can serve it with custard or whipped cream or both!
