Step 1

Remove the pit from the fruit.
Make your caramel by adding the sugar to the water, leave to boil without stirring.
Once the caramel is made, line the bottom of a mould with the mixture.
Prepare the cake by combining the eggs and the jam.
Add the melted butter, flour and yeast.
Pour the mix into the mould over the mirabelle fruit.
Heat the oven 180°C.
Bake for 40 minutes, leave to cool once it is done.

Why not try and replace the mirabelles with apples, pears, prunes, cherries etc...
