Summer Nectarine Cakes : Great for lazy day !

Because I didn’t have a lot of time lately (almost everyday I went to the mall with my sisters, last week), I was tried. But I couldn’t stop baking and all I want is an easiest recipe which I don’t have to do anything more than mix and pour (yes, this one is the easy and yummy recipe, that I use very little time for mixing, about 5 minutes).

The recipe is from.......... I always place this book near my bed, haha, I think it’s a beautiful cookbook and the recipe are very simple and easy as the name of the book.

Nectarine is one of my favorite fruits and when turns it in to this cake the flavor of sweet fruit goes very well with the lightly sweet almond base cake.

So, take all the ingredients out of the fridge and you will have a lovely little cake to enjoy in less than 30 minutes.
