This also works well with fresh apricots, peaches, apples or plums. Great for afternoon tea or as a special dessert.

This recipe is gorgeous - thanks for sharing. I only baked the cake today and have already eaten 2 slices - its soft and so yummy. I didn't use the full amount of nectarines as I only had 2 and I put vinegar in milk because I didn't have any yogurt. I'll definitely be making this again.
