Fruited Sponge Cake

Pat Duran


This is a great and tasty fruit on the bottom dessert. It is especially good served with fresh cream like in English restaurants or with vanilla custard or cinnamon ice cream.
Serve this dessert with the sugar side up and fruit on the bottom, I love it with fresh heavy cream drizzled over top!
