Fresh apricots and cherries, pitted


Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Butter cake tin. Arrange fruit on bottom of tin.

Combine butter and honey, stir in eggs (1 at a time). Add cream and stir. Add hazelnut meal, baking powder and flour and mix to combine.

Pour mixture over fruit and bake for approximately 1 hour. Cover with foil if top is getting too brown during cooking.
