good food + awesome travel & occasional odd bits

White Nectarine Breakfast Cake

Here’s an oldie but goodie. This cake recipe is so simple and easy to make, you really can’t go wrong. Even better is the versatility of the batter- everything from stone fruits to fresh berries can be baked into the base recipe; simply change your spices to accommodate whatever fresh fruit you are using.

When my mom showed up with a box full of nectarines and of course they all ripened at the same time, I instantly knew I was going to make this cake again. Although I prefer to enjoy my summer fruits all natural, plain and simple, there are a select few recipes I do enjoy adding fruits to and this is definitely one of them.

I like the outside of my cake with a bit more color than usual for added depth of flavor since the cake and fruits are sweet. It’s nice to have a slightly textured outer crumb, especially if you are enjoying it with coffee.

Here’s the part where you realize this is an oldie but goodie. It’s from a 2009 issue of Gourmet Magazine and the recipe can be found here: Nectarine Golden Cake.
