The Easiest Cake Ever


1 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1 tspoon baking powder
1 tspoon vanilla
zest of 1 lemon
3 cups of fruit, any variety, but soft and juicy!


Combine all the above ingredients, reserving 1 cup of the sliced fruit.

Grease and flour a 9" round or rectangular baking pan or springform pan.

At this point, EITHER:

  • pour in batter and add the last cup of fruit on top OR
  • arrange the remaining sliced fruit in spiral design in the springform, and pour batter overtop.

You can also sprinkle a bit of sugar on top for a crunchy crust.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Notes: serves 8-12. Truly is the easiest cake I've ever made, and completely flexible. I like to eat it as a breakfast cake, but also makes an elegant dessert.
