This is a really, really nice light dessert cake, refreshing and tasty too with the fruit it contains. I have a high regard for Rose Reisman, and have enjoyed any recipe of hers that I've used. This lovely-to-look-at cake (baked in a tube pan) delivers the satisfaction of having a special treat without the extra calories, fat, or (dare I say it) guilt! The only thing I found that I'd want to change next time is the prominent taste of baking powder/soda, and would cut back on the amounts given. It is a very moist cake, so sprinkle icing sugar over top just before serving so it doesn't dissolve.
