    MarieFromSweden's Note:

    I've had this recipe for many years but didn't come around to trying it until last summer and it became my favourite cake with fruit. I used peaches that time. It is made in a old-fashioned way with a sugar sprinkled top. It makes a moist but not heavy cake. Hope you will enjoy it!

      My family is Swedish and I made it for Christmas. Everyone loved it. Almost reminds me of a mild coffee cake with fruit. Next time I will chop extra apples to mix throughout the entire batter.

      What a great recipe! I have been looking for Swedish recipes to share with my children so they can 'taste' some family history and this was a hit. I used pineapple, apple and pear and the cake turned out perfectly. Please post some more Swedish recipes soon.

      My grandmother was Swedish and she used to make this all the time for me when I was a little girl. I used peaches from the tree in our yard, and added a pear and a nectarine, with a bit of lemon zest added for flavor. My grandmother used to serve this with cream poured on top, thanks for bringing back some wonderful memories!
