Fancy Fuss-Free Torte Recipe

This pretty layered torte from Joan Causey of Greenwood, Arkansas relies on convenient frozen pound cake and canned pie filling. "It's a snap to assemble," she promises. "I put toothpicks through the ends to hold the layers in place, then remove them before serving."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:10 servings


  • 1 loaf (10-3/4 ounces) frozen pound cake, thawed
  • 1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling or flavor of your choice
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


  • 1. Using a long serrated knife, cut cake horizontally into three layers. Place bottom cake layer on a serving plate; top with half of the pie filling. Repeat layers. Top with remaining cake layer. Frost top and sides of cake with whipped topping. Sprinkle with pecans. Yield: 10 servings.
