Frozen cherries become juicy and intense when baked into this tender cake. Frozen berries are a great way to savor summer fruit in the fall. Try this cake with blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, or a combination thereof.
The fruits are heated gently to release their crimson juices, and then layered with sliced bread and chilled overnight to allow the flavors to meld. Garnished with additional fresh fruit, this ruby beauty makes a dramatic statement.
Any combination of stone fruits can be used for this dessert. A nonreactive metal bowl is ideal for making sabayon because of its conductivity.
