Making a cake is easier than you think. Without all the fancy decoration, a cake is really just a mix-and-bake situation—and this flour-less lemon cake is no exception. (Okay fine, there’s a bit of blitzing involved, but you just throw it all into a food processor, anyway.) But behind its simplicity is a bright, rich cake with a dense center.
This recipe takes inspiration from our torta caprese. The difference is that this one has a bit more frill. You can use whatever fruit you want for the base; it doesn’t have to be berries, though we do recommend it. Finish the cake with some powdered sugar, or you can even drop a few more fruits on top.
