Summer Fruit Cake

"Delicious way to use summer fruits. Although you can use frozen fruits, I like to use fresh summer fruit in this cake. My favorites are peaches, apricots and plums. Original recipe was printed in Bon Appetit (August, 1981)."

    This cake is so good. I bought peaches to put in this cake, but when I cut them up, they were not ripe and had no flavor. I had a bag of mixed berries in the freezer (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries) so I decided to try that instead. It was delicious! Next time I will leave out the raisins. Just a personal preference.

    This is a moist and delicious cake! I didn't change a thing other than making it in two 8x8 pans so I could have one to take to a friend. Thank you!

    Yummy! Thanks for suggesting this as a way to use up my ripe peaches! I used 3 peaches and about 1/3 of a cup of strawberries fresh from the garden. This cake smells so good while it is baking. I will be bringing this to a friend's cabin tomorrow and it is sure to be a treat for all! Thanks again.

<p>I love cooking and trying different foods, but my favorite cookbooks are now Weight Watchers or low fat/low cal cookbooks as I tend to try and make low fat/low cal recipes. I lost over 90 pounds on Weight Watchers and have maintained for over a year now -- so my cooking/eating habits have changed drastically following my weight loss and to keep it off!</p>
