Garnish with berries if you like. Or, if you prefer, use almond extract instead of vanilla in the topping, and garnish with toasted, slivered almonds.

* If you're making this for someone with celiac disease, be sure to double-check all the ingredients labels on the products you use. Sometimes "light" versions of dairy products contain added fillers that may have traces of gluten.

** Allowing to cool slowly in the oven helps prevent the top of the cake from developing deep cracks.

** You will also notice there is no crust this is to make this gluten free.
