  • Makes: Serves 8.


6 apricots, pitted and thickly sliced

1 cup cherries, pitted and halved

3/4 cup + 3 Tbsp. sugar (or to taste, according to the sweetness of the fruit)

pinch cinnamon

1/2 cup butter

2 large eggs

1 cup all-purpose flour


1Preheat the oven to 350°F and butter a pie plate.

2Toss the apricots and cherries in the pie plate with about 2 Tbsp. sugar and the cinnamon; spread into the plate. Melt the butter in a small saucepan and keep cooking it, swirling the pan occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until it turns golden. Pour into a bowl.

3Stir the 3/4 cup of sugar into the butter, then the eggs, then the flour. Pour over the fruit and sprinkle with the last tablespoon of sugar.

4Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden and crusty, and the juices are bubbling around the edges. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream or thick vanilla yogurt.
