Thanks to a good friend Vi from the US who shared this lovely recipe with us. You could almost use any kind of fruits you can find in your fridge to make this fruit pastry. Fruits like strawberry, raspberry, peach, apricot, kiwi, longan, lychee, prune, grapes, etc etc. In another word, anything that you fancy. Look at mine, I used peach and it turned out so pretty.
Fruit Pastry (recipe by Vi)
1 1/2 cups (210 gr.) flour
140 gr sugar + 2 tablespoons
3/4 stick (100 gr.) butter
2 tablespoons (50 gr.) sour cream
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon lemon or orange peel
500 gr. fruits (apricots, peaches, pears, cherries, plums, orange, pineapple, or any other fruit not too juicy)
In a strainer place the prepared fruits (pit removed and cut in not too big pieces) sprinkle them with 2 tablespoons of sugar.
Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).
Beat butter, sour cream and sugar together. Add eggs one at a time.
Add flavorings. Flour and baking powder and mix until everything is smooth.
Butter and flour a baking pan (18x27 cm or 7x11 inch). A round 9 inch will do the same. Place batter in the pan and level nice.
Place fruits on top (don’t press). Bake for 60-70 minutes. I bake mine 70 minute. But that depends of your oven.
Let cool on a rack and sprinkle with sugar or not… and serve.
