“Between chocolate and fruit desserts, I always choose fruit,” says Goggi, who knows how to make this simple cake by memory. “I brush it with honey and lemon glaze to keep the top moist and shiny.” In fall, pears or apples work well, or in summer, peaches, apricots, and berries do too. Spelt, an ancient grain, lends a hearty crumb and golden color.
