Everyone needs an easy, impressive and delicious recipe up their sleeve. In The Newlywed Cookbook, Sarah Copeland, provides that recipe in the Lazy Chef’s Fruit Torte. It’s a recipe that has a simple base, and can be changed by adding different toppings. The cake is light and not overly sweet, it’s a perfect finish to any meal. Saleem and I enjoyed the torte with blueberries, sliced almonds and dusting of confectioners sugar after the delicious Pork Ragu he made. Enjoy!
