Fresh Summer Fruit Torte

My mother would often make this Marian Burros recipe using the fruit from our fruit trees ~ Apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums, pears, apples, berries ~ almost any fruit will do. It has been a longtime family favorite since the 80's, it's delicious and is very simple to put together.

Here it is ready for the oven. :)

I've posted the original recipe, and also the changes I've recently made to make it a bit more diabetic friendly. It is not too sweet and the original version can be sucessfully frozen.
My modified version bakes up a little differently; the fruit doesn't sink into the batter, and it's best eaten fresh.

If you would like a printable copy of the original recipe, along with my changes it can be found on my recipe blog by clicking HERE (Once Upon a Plate ~ Recipes.)

If you try either one of these recipes I hope you love this dessert as much as I do.
