"This beautiful dessert is a very big hit at parties," relates Phyllis Amboss of Pacific Palisades, California. "The tender meringues have a wonderful hazelnut flavor with layers of chocolate, whipped cream and berries.
"I got the recipe when we were in Israel for a few months in 1979. I had no cookbooks with me, and my hairdresser gave me an old Australian cookbook with this recipe in it. I made a few changes and this is the result."
This beautiful torte is loaded with five different kinds of nuts, a coconut filling and plenty of cream cheese frosting. "I loved dreaming up this cake, because my family enjoys desserts and nuts," shares Callie Moore, from Preston, Connecticut.
This cake is so rich, you'd never guess it was lower in fat and sugar than other desserts. The smooth peanut butter layers and fudgy topping make it a hit with my family. —Crystal Christopher of Hustonville, Kentucky
"I was so tired of eating plain angel food cake and fruit for dessert that I decided to combine the two with a little whipped topping—the result is this scrumptious and refreshing torte," says Hettie Johnson of Jacksonville, Florida. "It tastes as good as it looks!"
