Method

32-40 minutes
 

Preheat the oven to 180 °c. Grease an 18 cm ring cake tin with margarine and dust with cake flour.

1. Syrup heat all the ingredients except the fruit in a saucepan, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Add the fruit and simmer gently for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.

2. Cake beat together the eggs, caster sugar and vanilla essence or extract until pale and fluffy.

3. Sift the self-raising flour and fold in with the polenta.

4. Arrange some of the fruit slices in the bottom of the cake tin and spoon the batter on top.

5. Add the chocolate and, using a skewer, swirl it through the batter to create a marbled effect. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Cool for about 10 minutes. Run a knife along the inside of the tin and turn the cake out. Spoon the remaining fruit and syrup on top and serve.
