When you present this eye-catching dessert on your table, you'll be thanked with many "ooohs" and "aaahs".
It may take some time to prepare. But after you see the smiles on your family's faces, you'll agree it was worth a little extra effort.
"This recipe was given to me by a friend years ago," says Tessa Downing from Doylestown, Pennsylvania. "It's the perfect cake to mix up at the last minute. Choose any fruit pie filling, such as blueberry, peach or apple. If you use apple, sprinkle a little cinnamon on top."
"A purchased pound cake makes this show-stopping dessert a breeze to prepare ahead of time," declares Valerie Putsey of Winamac, Indiana. "Cream cheese frosting gives this torte a rich taste that will have guests thinking you spent hours making it."
This recipe uses dried cherries, which adds lots of chewy flavor, while almond paste guarantees a moist cake. You can use amaretto in place of the orange juice in both the batter and glaze.Myrna Tycholaz, Winnipeg, Manitoba
