Moist fruit torte

Here's another one of my favorite camp recipes from Ironwood. This moist fruit torte is scrumptious. It's wonderful for breakfast, as a dessert, or for a snack while blogging.:) I love the cinnamon-sugar that covers the entire top of it, as well as the moist center and crunchy edges. Feel free to use any canned fruit. The recipe suggests using plums, but I love using peaches. Enjoy!

Moist Fruit Torte

1 cup margarine or butter
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon salt
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups flour
1 can (16 oz.) fruit, drained and pitted (plums or peaches are good choices)
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream first 3 ingredients. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Blend in flour and baking powder. Spread batter into greased 9 x 13-inch pan. Place fruit evenly on batter. Blend cinnamon with remaining sugar and sprinkle over the fruit. Bake for 30 minutes until light brown and set in the center.
