While I'm enjoying time with my family in Romania several of my favorite food bloggers (born outside US just like me) are sharing their culinary talents with you. 
Today, I'd like you to welcome Abeer. She's from Canada, now living in Chicago area. On her blog, Cake Whiz, A cake Geek's Resource, as you can easily guess almost everything is about cake!

You can follow Abeer on Facebook and on Twitter Now, please say Hello to my friend Abeer 
Fruit Sauce
Hey everyone! My name is Abeer and I blog at cakewhiz.com. Just like my blog name suggests, I love anything and everything to do with cakes…lol.
When Roxana told me she would be in Romania for holidays and needed someone to do a guest post, I was more than happy to agree. After all, her blog is fantastic and she is so sweet that I could never even imagine saying “no” to her
The recipe I am sharing today is for a fruit sauce. This is something my mom has been making for as long as I can remember and it tastes delicious with cakes or even on a slice of bread!
As a kid, I used to sneak into the kitchen at nights, open the refrigerator and eat spoonfuls of this fruit sauce just on its own…hahaha

Making this is fairly  simple and it’s a great way to use up all the fruits in your house that no one is eating.
 
You will need the following ingredients for the fruit sauce:
1 apple
1 pear
2 kiwis
1 apricot
1 peach
6-7 strawberries
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
Pinch of cinnamon OR 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (both are optional)
 
Step 1:
Chop up all your favorite fruits into small chunks. I used apples, pears, kiwis, apricots, strawberries and peaches. Throw all these fruits into a saucepan.

Step 2:
Add brown sugar and granulated sugar. you can add more or less depending on your preference.
You can also add some cinnamon or vanilla extract if you wish.

Step 4:
Cook this on medium to low heat. Do not let it stick to the base of the saucepan and burn!

Continue to cook until your fruits become soft and the syrup becomes thick. The color would also change and become reddish or brownish depending on the fruits you used.
Allow this fruit sauce to cool while you complete the next few steps.

Step 6:
Bring out your baked vanilla cake and place it on a cake board. I used a dome cake pan which I got from Michaels and I love how the cake ended up looking so round and cute….lol.
