    Have made this 3 times now .... last 2 times I did 2 at same time as my neighbour gave me the tamarillos. They love the cake too. I didn't double the mixture ... just quick cleaned bowl and made 2nd batter. But baked both at same time in 2 springform cake tins. I baked at 160 fan forced oven as a guess as temperature wasn't in instructions. YUM

  • Really easy, fast to prepare

    Really easy, fast to prepare and really yummy. I had a lot of small tamarillos to use up from a tree in the front garden.  I also added 25g of coconut in with the almonds.  This could go with many types of fruit and I will definately be using it again. Although I might try halving the recipe as its a lot of pud for a family of four.
