Metis® Frangipane Cake


Metis® Frangipane Cake
There's a new fruit on the block that you might not be familiar with. Metis® is a hybrid fruit created by natural cross pollination by bees between selected apricot pollen and plum blooms. It’s a family of 4 fruits; Oxy, Tonic, Safari and Aroma each with their  own special characteristics.

From deep purple to rosy pink or ruby red, the Metis® family of fruits offers a kaleidoscope of tempting colours. Don't they look beautiful?!
Metis®
Oxy – deep in colour and rich in antioxidants, complete with crunchy bite and juicy taste (this is the variety I used in this cake).
Tonic – sun drenched summers give this late August ripening Metis® extra goodness with a soft juicy bite.
Safari – a firm skin and crunchy bits develops to a deliciously sweet taste, making it a hit with kids.
Aroma – offers a full flavour experience with a distinctive taste and strong aroma.

Currently stocked in Tesco’s until November, Metis® are just as juicy as a traditional plum but easier to eat with a firmer crisper skin and therefore much better suited to lunchboxes! My kids have had them in their lunchboxes this week and enjoyed telling the other children (and teachers) in their class about them.

They are also great for baking with and this Metis® Frangipane Cake is not only yummy but also very easy to make. The slight tartness of the Metis® against the moist sweet almondy cake is yummy.
