Delicious Everyday Cake with Fruit

Contributed by Sara Tetreault

“This is my favorite, go-to cake recipe. Why do I love it?  Simple, easy ingredients that I always have on hand. After dinner as a dessert, or at a coffee-klatch in the morning with friends, it’s always a hit.  My kids call it “breakfast dessert” and they love it, too.  The best part is that you sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on the cake just before baking it.  It makes the top a little crunchy and very tasty.” ~ Sarah
