Use the above recipe picture for an idea how to arrange the fruit.
  • Prepare the Cake
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a small bowl. Beat the butter and sugar in a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until light and fluffy. Add the egg yolks one at a time scraping the bowl well between each addition. Add the vanilla extract. Add half of the flour and mix on low speed just until combined. Beat in the sour cream and then carefully beat in the rest of the flour just until combined. Take the bowl off the mixer. In a clean medium sized bowl, beat the egg whites with a whip until they form soft peaks. Mix a third of the egg whites into the cake batter to help lighted in up. Then carefully fold in the rest of the egg whites. Pour the cake batter over the topping in the pan and spread evenly. Bake for 45 – 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Let the cake sit in the pan for 10 minutes after baking and then flip it over onto a serving platter. Serve warm with lightly sweetened whipped cream.

Notes

This is one of my Dad's favorite desserts so I had to make it in the Baker's Edge so that he could have more of the topping on every serving.
