Cakes don't have to just be packed with chocolate, caramel or coconut, why not switch to a fruity cake. You can keep it a sponge but add some fabulous chunky pieces of fruit to add some natural sugars and superb flavours to the mix! You don't have to do peach and pineapple, you can do pretty much any fruit!
