Are you looking for an easy way to wow your guests this Independence day? This cake is always a favourit at BBQ’s and get togethers. My excuse is that it’s healthy because it has fruit on it. The ingredients do not cost much and the preperation time takes no time at all. I hope you enjoy this recipe as it is one of my favourite summer time treats.
