We always like to end the Shabbat meal with dessert. Here is one of our favorites.

Ingredients for the Fruit Layer:

  • ¼ cup oil
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 can of fruit drained, save juice (you can also use pineapple chunks)

Cake Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of saved juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder


Mix the fruit layer ingredients and pour into a round pan. Arrange the fruit so that the bottom of the pan is covered.

Combine oil, sugar, eggs and beat well. Add dry ingredients alternately with juice. Pour batter evenly over fruit mixture.

Bake on 350F for 40-45 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to stand for 5 minutes before flipping cake onto a cake plate. Tip: to remove cake easily, place cake plate over the pan, flip gently and cake will left out perfectly.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
