3 1/2 oz butter or margarine
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tbs fresh lemon juice
1 cup all-purpose white flour
5 - 6 large nectarines, peaches, or thin-skinned
or 15 - 16 large plums
1/4 - 1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup thin cream
1 1/2 oz flaked almonds
Stir fat and sugar fluffy and stir in the eggs, one by one, lemon juice, and
flour. Lightly butter an oven-proof dish, spread out the batter and make
sure it covers the walls. Heat the oven to 350F.
Split the fruit in halves and remove stones and seeds. If you use apples,
these are cut in very thin slices. Nectarines or peaches are cut in wedges
and large plums are quartered. Divide the fruit in an even layer. Sprinkle
with sugar. The larger amount of sugar stated is needed for apples. Sprinkle
also with half of the flaked almonds.
Beat together eggs and cream and pour this over the fruit. Sprinkle with
remaining almond and bake in the lower part of the oven for 40 - 45 minutes.
