Real Fruit Cake

Real Fruit Cake

Some times you just can’t better what nature has given you. But you can present this gorgeous natural goodness in a kick-ass way! I recently had a lot of fruit in the house but no cake. So I decided to make the most of what I had an make a cake from the fruit, introducing the Real Fruit Cake to our household.

My youngest is a complete fruit fiend and it’s his go to snack so he’s bowled over by it as I hope you will be. It’s super easy to make and makes a great centerpiece for a summer lunch.

Simply cut the ends of the top and bottom of a watermelon. Now you can easily place it on a board and begin to slice the rind off. Remove all the green bits so you are left with the red flesh only. Now slice in the layers horizontally.

For the filling I have used sliced strawberries, nectarine and an apple which I also dipped in lemon juice first so it won’t go brown. Just place the fruits on the layer, I have done one nectarine and strawberry, one apple and strawberry and the final in all three.  After you have placed your fruit on just stack another watermelon cake on top. I’ve finished it off with some mixed berries for colour and variety.

I hope you like it as much as we all do!
