1 tsp vanilla

3/4 cup white flour

1/4 cup whole wheat flour

1/4 tsp nutmeg

sanding sugar to sprinkle on top (about 1 Tbsp)


1)Preheat oven to 350F.  Butter a 9-inch springform pan (or, line a 9-inch round cake pan with parchment if you don’t have a springform pan) and set aside.

2)In a stand mixer with paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar until fluffy.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.  Beat on med-high for a few minutes until  quite fluffy. Meanwhile, sift flours, salt, b. powder and nutmeg into a separate bowl.

3)Add vanilla and slowly add flour mixture until just combined.

4)Pour into pan and arrange sliced fruit over the top.  Sprinkle with sanding sugar.

5)Bake 40-50 min or until edges are browning and center is set.  Let rest 5 minutes before removing from pan.  Enjoy with ice cream or whipped cream.
