Blueberry and Peach cake

Blueberry and peach oozing !!!!

I was looking for something simple to bake and came across this recipe from Food Librarian. It uses the quick bread method which means no mixer. Just one bowl and a spatula. Mix the ingredients in the bowl... chop the fruits and arrange them in the baking pan.. pour the batter in the pan.. and the dessert ready in the oven.
It is simple and yet turn out cake that is yummy. Definitely a keeper.

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!

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

2. Grease and flour a 9″ round or rectangular baking pan or springform pan
( I used a 8" square pan. This is not a "thick" cake. I would try to double the recipe next time so that the cake will be thicker)

At this point, EITHER:
a) pour in batter and add the last cup of fruit on top OR
b) arrange the remaining sliced fruit in spiral design in the springform, and pour batter overtop.

3. sprinkle a bit of sugar ontop for a crunchy crust.

4. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour

I used blueberry and peach for my version. I mixed the blueberry in the batter and arrange the peach on top.
