Lemon Cake with Baked Fruit Recipe
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease, flour and line the bottom of two loaf pans with parchment paper.
  • Cream the butter and 2 cups granulated sugar in the electric mixer bowl with the paddle attachment, for about 5 minutes or until light and fluffy.
  • With the mixer on medium speed, add the eggs one at a time, and the lemon zest.
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
  • In another bowl, combine 1/4 cup lemon juice, the buttermilk, and vanilla.
  • Add the flour and buttermilk mixtures alternately to the batter, beginning and ending with the flour.
  • Divide the batter evenly between the pans, smooth the tops, and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour until a cake tester comes out clean.
  • Combine 1/2 cup granulated sugar with 1/2 cup lemon juice in a small saucepan and cook over low heat until the sugar dissolves.
  • When the cakes are done, let them cool for 10 minutes, then flip them onto a rack set on a tray, and spoon the lemon syrup over the cakes. Allow the cakes to cool completely.
  • For the glaze, combine the confectioners' sugar and lemon juice in a bowl, mixing with a wire whisk until smooth.
  • Pour over the top of the cakes and allow the glaze to drizzle down the sides.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Add mangos, nectarines and plums to a 9x11 baking dish. Sprinkle with sugar and add the raspberries. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Heat the broiler and place the fruit 5 inches below the heat and broil for 5-8 minutes until the berries release some of their juices.
