For the fruits:

  • 1 pound fresh strawberries roughly chopped
  • 2 medium bananas roughly chopped
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • ¼ cup sugar

For the cake mix:

  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 stick ½ cup cold butter, sliced


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Dump the chopped fruits into a small rectangular baking dish (approximately 9 x 7 inch). Spoon on top sugar and cornstarch. Mix until the the fruits are evenly coated.

  • Place the pan in the oven to bake. Make sure that the butter has covered completely the cake after melting. If this is not the case, add some more butter on the parts of the cake that are still dry.
    Bake the cake for 20-30 minutes or until the top becomes golden brown.
    Serve warm, preferably with an ice cream scoop on top, and store leftovers for 2-3 days in the refrigerator. Enjoy!

  • Want to try a variation with different fruits? No problem! Just consider increasing the sugar with fruits that are less sweet.
  • Make sure the butter is well distributed on top so that it covers the cake mix perfectly as it melts. Otherwise, you are risking to find traces of dry flour afterward which won’t be pleasant to eat.
