I love going to farmer markets during summertime. One of the things that I really enjoy is checking out the many fresh fruit stalls with wide varieties of colorful, beautiful, and bountiful fruits. Various sorts of berries, peaches, plums, pluots, pears, nectarines, and the list goes on. It’s such a beautiful sight, and I would always buy more than we can eat.

Anyway, summer is prime time to make fruity cakes or desserts, such as this mixed fruit pastry cake, a recipe contributed by my friend CP Choong. She has previous shared with us the mini egg cake, Sicilian orange cake, and lemon cream cake recipes. With endless summer dishes, it’s always refreshing to wash down all the BBQ’s and grilling (click the link to check out my BBQ/grilling recipes) with a slice or two of these utterly refreshing fruit pastry cake.

Fruit Pastry Cake

What I really love about this fruit pastry cake is that I can choose the fruit toppings for this cake. If you love berries, use more of them. If you like a combination of everything, you can do that, too. The key is choosing your favorite fruits, and hopefully in various colors so the fruit pastry cake looks absolutely gorgeous and beautiful. Enjoy the natural bounty of summer fruits while you can. Enjoy!

You can use strawberries, blueberries, peaches, bananas, oranges, pears, apples, pineapple, or any other fruits that are not too juicy. I omitted the sugar and used as much fruits, either fresh or canned, as needed to fill the top of the cake.
