A delicious recipe for Butter Cake with Peaches and Raspberries, with step-by-step photos. Recipe adapted from The Cook’s Atelier by Marjorie Taylor and Kendall Smith Franchini.
To make vanilla sugar, simply place a split vanilla bean into a clean glass jar, and fill it with caster sugar. Leave it for at least a few days for the vanilla to infuse the sugar. You can keep adding vanilla beans to the sugar over time to intensify the aroma.
Most seasonal fruits work well in this recipe. Some suggestions include:
* peaches, thinly sliced
* nectarines, thinly sliced
* plums, thinly sliced
* apricots, halved
* mixed berries
* rhubarb, sliced into short lengths like in this cake
