Fruit baked in cake

christy319 | Jun 7, 2012 04:15 PM

A few years ago in northern Italy (near Lake Como) I had a very simple dessert that I'd love to recreate. It was just like a single layer sponge cake with peach slices baked in it, with powdered sugar dusted on top. I made a sponge cake with peach slices, and it wasn't quite right. I know I could fuss around but it seems easier to ask here. I am not a huge fan of crisps/crumbles/buckles/etc and so a very simple cake like this, with fruit in it, is worth perfecting IMO.

So--does anyone know a cake like this, and can you recommend a recipe?
