Recipe by MarieFromSweden
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.
