Don’t ask me why, but I have gotten it into my head that I should call this Torta della Santa Maria (St. Mary’s Cake). It’s my own creation, and I’m not Italian and I don’t have any clue as to what St. Mary would have to do with it. And I even think of it as more of a pie than a cake! But, Torta della Santa Maria it will be. What’s fun about this recipe is that you take an off the shelf mix (good in its own right!) and make it something extraordinary both in appearance and in taste. I think it is an elegant combination of the tastes of raspberries, almonds and orange. At our church breakfast this morning someone told me that she thought my tart had come from a bakery and that it was the best thing she had ever eaten. Seriously. I was truly humbled. Please try it and let me know how yours turns out!
