Yes, my fruit torte recipe, aka Obsttorte, is so delicious. With fresh berries, it's one of those great fruit dessert recipes to enjoy in the summer. I've used mixes of berries, such as raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, or blueberries. You could just use strawberries, for example, and make Strawberry Fruit Torte.
Since there's no wheat flour used, this is a gluten-free recipe (check that the cornstarch is pure!) It's a great "diet" German dessert, very light and with little sugar. Actually no sugar is used. Honey is added for sweetness.
The original recipe calls for one leaf of gelatin dissolved in 100 ml of juice.
This is commonly used in traditional German recipes, but does not dissolve as easily as the granulated gelatin. If you have leaf gelatin, you can use it here.
The conversion for gelatin is 4 leaves = 1 package gelatin = 1 tsp granulated gelatin.
For the Obsttorte pictured above, I used lots and lots of huge strawberries, blackberries, and halved grapes. Because of the quantity of fruit, I dissolved 1 package of gelatin in 2 cups of unsweetened apple juice (following package instructions). I let the gelatin thicken slightly in the fridge for about 1 hour before spooning it over the fruit.
