Whats.Cooking's picture
Ingredients
  Butter 8 Ounce, softened (250 Gram)
  Caster sugar 8 Ounce (250 Gram)
  Eggs 8 Ounce, beaten (250 Gram)
  Potato flour 4 Ounce (125 Gram)
  Raisin 4 Ounce (125 Gram)
  Orange flower water 1 Teaspoon
  Orange juice 1 Tablespoon
  Orange 1 , finely grated rind
  Fresh fruit 1 Pound (500 Gram)
Directions

Make the cake as for the basic Pound Cake, sifting the flours together and adding the orange-flower water, juice and rind at the end.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin, then arrange fresh fruit on top: slices of apple or pear (not too thin), halved plums or apricots, medium slices of kiwifruit, pineapple slices, etc.
Bake for 60-70 minutes, by which time the fruit will have sunk to the bottom of the cake.
Allow the cake to cool slightly before turning out on to a rack.
The cake is served upside down, fruit-side up, and dusted with sifted icing sugar.
If served warm, these cakes make remarkably good puddings served with a fruit sauce, thin, rich custard or thickly whipped cream.
