Fruit Platz


125    mL   butter or margerine
125    mL   sugar
2      eggs
5      mL   vanilla
500    mL   flour
10     mL   baking powder

180    mL   milk

1       L   fruit (sour cherries or apricots are recommended)

The batter should be thick but not really pourable.

Topping (Rübel)

250   mL    flour
250   mL    sugar
125   mL    butter or margerine

 - Spread the batter on a baking sheet (about 1 cm thick)
 - lay the fruit on the batter
 - top with the rübel
 - bake at 175 C for 30 minutes.  You might want to grill 
   the top a bit (carefully).

 - I recommend sour cherries, apricots or plums for the 
   filling.  Apple would also work well.  Try any fruit 
   you like!  Apparently the South American Mennonites use
   bananas or other tropical fruit.

 - Using canned apricots will not give you a good result.  
   I freeze a bunch in July and ration them all winter.  
   Home canned, fresh or frozen sour cherries work really
