Double the recipe to make a 9 or 10" round cake, or bake the cake in smaller buttered and floured molds, or in mini muffin tins lined with muffin cups.
Leftover cake is excellent toasted and smeared with jam (cherry!) or chocolate-hazelnut spread for a sweet breakfast or afternoon snack, tea or coffee optional but highly recommended.
For a variation, bake the fruit (glazed apples, sauteed pears, fresh berries or cherries) right into the cake - you will want to bake the batter first, fruit-free, for about 10-15 minutes, then add the fruit, so that it doesn't sink to the bottom.
