Preheat oven to 350 °F and grease a 9-x-13-inch pan.
Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in sour cream, then add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla and almond extracts.
In a separate bowl, stir flour, ground almonds, lemon zest, baking powder, nutmeg and salt to combine. Add to butter mixture and stir just until incorporated.
Spread batter into prepared pan and arrange fruit over batter, pressing in gently (if using plums or apricots halves, arrange with flat-side up). Sprinkle lightly with sugar and cinnamon and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until a tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
Cool completely before slicing into squares and serving.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
