Molten butter mix with sugar until white. Add the eggs and continue to beat. Then there are added milk, water and flour sifted with baking powder. Mix well to form a thick cake mix (if you do it very rarely add more flour). Add cinnamon, coarsely chopped walnuts and ground hazelnuts and stir. Place in a greased and floured pan with a diameter of 25-30 cm and bake in preheated oven at 150-200C degrees. Pricked with a fork or skewer until slightly warm. Once cool is something like a hard base. Put water and sugar on the stove until boil. Put a packet of vanilla and a little citric acid or lemon juice. Let the syrup to boil 5-10 minutes to get a little thicker. Pour base had grown cold with hot syrup. Peeled and chopped fruit (in the case of apples and pears) put in a suitable container with sugar and 1-2 tbsp water and caramelize until thickened. Put them on the cake and spread them over the entire surface. Optional can be sprinkled with walnuts. * The syrup is made according to your preferences - lighter or very sweet. The amount of nuts can also be adjusted. It is desirable to make the cake more pan to become flattened, and therefore better moist.
