Wash the fruit, let the berries drain and cut the apricots into small pieces. Grease a baking sheet with butter and sprinkle with flour.

Split 5 eggs and put the egg withs cold away. Beat the butter with 200 g sugar, vanilla sugar and a pinch of salt creamy. Beat the 5 egg yolks and 4 eggs one at a time into the mixture. Mix the flour with cornstarch and baking powder and stir briefly in portions into the dough.

Flatten the dough into the pan. Divide the apricot and red berries over the dough and sprinkle with 3 tablespoons sugar. Bake in a preheated oven at 175°C (fan oven 150°C) about 35 minutes. Remove the cake from the oven and increase the temperature to 250°C (fan oven 225°C).
