A moist and fruity cake with my favourite fruits. Using gala apples gives the cake extra sweetness and the cherries balances the flavour by adding a little sourness. Hope you enjoy x

150g castor sugar
85g unsalted butter
2 large eggs
Zest of 1 small lemon and juice
handful of cherries, halved and stoned
2 gala apples cored and chopped into a medium pieces
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
a splash of milk
1 tbsp icing sugar to dust
