How to Make Ellie's Methodist Cake
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray cake or pie pan with non-stick cooking spray. Drain the cup of fruit; if using fresh applies, cut into 1/2" pieces.
- Mix the fruit and granulated sugar, adding the flour and baking soda slowly and mixing as you go. Add one half of the brown sugar. Stir with a spatula until smooth. The batter should be smooth, except the chunks of fruit. Crumble the remainder of brown sugar on top of the cake.
- Bake for approximately 30 minutes, checking every five after that. Cake is done when middle springs back, sides pull in slightly and tester comes out nearly dry. Note: the top will be very sticky; meant to be very moist. The brown sugar caramelizes and adds a nice taste and texture. Serve warm with whipped cream or slice from the pan with a glass of milk! Keep the cake covered with plastic wrap or waxed paper at room temperature for 3-4 days. Freezes very well for future use.
