Peach or Plum & Berry Bars

Cake
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 cup + 3 Tbsp. sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extract (optional)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
Filling
1-2 peaches or nectarines or 2-3 plums, sliced
a few handfuls of fresh berries - blueberries, raspberries and sliced strawberries

1

Preheat the oven to 350F.

2

Beat the butter and 1 cup of the sugar for a minute, until pale and fluffy; add the eggs and vanilla and almond extracts and beat until smooth. Add the flour and salt and blend just until combined. Spread into a buttered 9x13-inch pan (it will be thick and a little tricky to spread - and will be thin - it's OK).

3

Slice the peaches onto the cake and scatter with berries, arranging the fruit so that it's in a single layer. Sprinkle with the 3 Tbsp. sugar and bake for 45-55 minutes, or until the edges are golden and the middle is set.
