Are you looking for a tasty recipe that is not too sweet, light and absolutely delicious? If you’re a foodie, you’ll definitely LOVE this traditional Polish fruit cake. You can make it your own and use whatever fruits you wish.

It’s perfectly soft, not too dry or moist. Best part — it’s super easy to make! This is a cake my family truly enjoys during any season. We bake it in the morning and it’s ready early afternoon. Typically, the entire cake is gone by evening!

Here’s what you need and steps on how to make it are below:

Ingredients

3 cups flour

1 ½ cup sugar

6 eggs

2 sticks of butter

1 small lemon for juice

1 full tablespoon of sour cream

½ teaspoon baking soda

2 small packages of strawberries

2 small packages of blueberries

Instructions

Wash the strawberries and blueberries thoroughly and allow them to dry. Cut the strawberries in halves in preparation for placement onto the dough.
