Delicious when still warm - But try leaving it overnight so the juices further release into the cake rather then the cake being aroud the fruit! 

You may have to make 2!!

You can make your own cinamon sugar at the start of the recipe for the topping, but the granulation of teh raw sugar adds a lovely texture.
