The Beracha When Eating Cake and Fruit Together

The Beracha When Eating Cake and Fruit Together
Day: Friday
Date: June 24, 2016
Parshat: Biha'aloticha
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 212

One who is eating fruit together with cake says a beracha on the cake only and not on the fruit even if he also eats some of the fruit without any cake. This is true if he's having the fruit only to add to the cake. However, if he is having the fruit separate from the cake a separate beracha is said on the fruit as well. The same is true with regards to one who eats fish or meat with crackers or some other food such a tortilla. As long as the fish or meat is only there to make the cracker or tortilla more palatable, no separate beracha is said.
