Lovely, easy and perfect to make ahead, this dessert is the perfect ending to any meal when the temperature is high and baking is out of the question. Simply slice the jelly into squares, mix in fruit and top with a bit of sparkly cider. That’s it.

This cake is very versatile and can be made with apples, pears, peaches, plums, or any full-flavored, slightly acidic fruit. Arrange the sliced fruit as you would for a Tarte Tatin, slightly overlapping in the brown sugar.

I keep a compote of dried fruits in the refrigerator most of the winter – the combination of fruit can be anything that you prefer, but the apricots melt slightly and the blueberries remain slightly crunchy so I always use those two. It makes an elegant dessert out of ice cream, pound or cheese cake, and it can be added to waffles or pancakes for brunch. When we started making our Tieton Wind, a port style cider, I gave it a try. Wow! It is lovely in this recipe. I made a batch for Valentine’s Day and it was still enjoyable at Easter.
