Heidi's Raspberry Torte recipe is SO very easy ... and pretty ... and super delicious. Use a variety of berries to change it ... or just raspberries. Perfect for your summer BBQ! Heidi is a dear German friend that is a fantastic baker. She'll take recipes and change them to suit her style. Here in this fruit torte, she used a combination of raspberries and blueberries (a Canadian addition!)
Love this. It's such a great example of a quick German recipe that's so traditionally German :) A fantastic raspberry cake recipe, for sure!
Here's that first piece of Raspberry & Blueberry Torte that Heidi served me. Wunderbar!
I knew I just had to have the recipe. Thankfully, Heidi loves to share!
Below, you'll find the original German version.
It comes from the "Kochbuch der Frauengemeinschaft Wettrup" and is subtitled "Freude beim Zubereiten" meaning it's fun to make.
Above, is my English version.
You'll see by the difference in the torte colors, that Heidi and I used different nuts.
I used ground hazelnuts and she used ground almonds. Both delicious, yet slightly different in taste.
Zucker und eier schaumig rühren. Nüsse dazu geben und bei 200 Grad abbacken.
Sahne und Sahnesteif steif schlagen und auf den Kuchen geben. Die himbeeren auf der Sahne verteilen. Den Saft mit Tortenguß abdicken und über die Himbeeren gießen. Im Kühlschrank kalt stellen.
