This recipe was given to me by a French foreign exchange student. It is very simple and very delicious. For the fruit, I usually use 1 banana, 1 diced and peeled apple, and some quartered strawberries, or some blueberries. You can use any combination you like.

I keep forgetting to write a review for this, but this recipe is what got me hooked on RecipeZaar. I love this cake. I've made it several times with different fruit: fresh apples, fresh cherries (my personal favorite - even though I hand pitted them), frozen fruit when I'm out of fresh. It's always a hit and even people who would turn their noses up at eating something "with roses in it!" ask me what that secret ingredient is. Thank you foreign exchange student!!

Oh my goodness is this ever good!!!!!!! I used a thawed bag of frozen 'fruits of the forest' type mixed berry medley as my fruit. Used sweet almond oil as my oil and whole wheat pastry flour. Used Dannon plain yogurt. I used the rose water too and you could smell it when the cake was baking, it was heaven!! Tasting the cake, the flavor of the rose water was very subtle, you really wouldn't know it was in there but it accented every other flavor. This cake is sooooooo moist!!!! This recipe is GREAT!! Only bad thing is you seriously cannot stop eating it, you have to keep saying "no more!" but then you eat another bite out of the pan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is wonderful cake, one of my new most favorite recipes on Zaar!!! Thanks so much for posting!!!!!!

What an easy and delicious cake!! The only things I did different was that I used less sugar (1/2 cup Sun Crystals to equate 1 cup sugar), left out the oil and put in more yogurt, and a tablespoon of rosewater since I was out of vanilla. I used fresh diced strawberries, which got nice and gooey in the oven. :) I'd love to make this again with different fruits, maybe blueberries and peaches!
