Erdbeer-Joghurt-Sahne-Torte (Strawberry-yogurt-cream-torte)

by Lori Neff


  • 1 baked 3-egg biskuit*
  • 1-1/2 lb strawberries
  • 1 32 oz container Greek Yogurt
  • 3/4 cup sugar (a bit more if you like it sweeter)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 envelopes gelatine
  • 1 pint whipping cream (heavy cream)


  • Slice enough strawberries to fit around the biskuit and for decoration. Puree the rest with the sugar and vanilla, set aside.
  • Fit a ring around the biskuit, and lightly oil (to prevent sticking later). Place strawberry slices around the inside of the ring.
  • Soak gelatine in about 1/8 cup of water, put on low heat until melted. Mix yogurt with the pureed strawberries, and mix 2 spoons full with the melted gelatine, then mix the gelatine mixture with the yogurt cream.
  • Beat whipping cream until stiff (don't overbeat) and carefully combine with the yogurt-strawberry mixture.
  • Slowly pour everything into the form on top of the biskuit and refrigerate at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  • Decorate with either sliced or whole strawberries - mint leaves give it a nice green touch.


* For the biskuit (sponge layer), here's Lori's 'go-to' recipe ...


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp warm water
  • 100 g sugar
  • 38 g flour
  • 38 g corn starch
  • lemon rind


  • Beat egg yolks with 2/3 of the sugar until foamy, add lemon rind.
  • Beat egg whites with the rest of the sugar until stiff peaks form and pour over beaten egg yolks.
  • Add the sieved flour and corn starch, and carefully lift and fold under until everything has been incorporated.
  • Put batter into a greased 9-inch springform pan.
  • Bake at 400F for 30 minutes (until an inserted wooden skewer comes out clean)

I just checked with Lori and here's her answer:
"I'm using a 9" spring form. Especially for a 'high' Torte, also for my cheese cakes."

Thanks for noticing this info was missing. I've edited the recipe to include it.

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild!

Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety
