Oma's German Fruit Torte Recipe

➤ by Gerhild Fulson

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 various mixes of berries, such as raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, and/or blueberries.

Above, you'll see blackberries, strawberries and green grapes. 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.

Using gelatine (granulated, package, or leaf)

The original recipe calls for one leaf of gelatine dissolved in 100 milliliter of juice.

This is commonly used in traditional German recipes, but does not dissolve as easily as the granulated gelatine. If you have leaf gelatine, you can use it here. 

The conversion for gelatine is 4 leaves = 1 envelope gelatine = 1 teaspoon granulated gelatine.

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 envelope of gelatine in 2 cups of unsweetened apple juice (following package instructions). I let the gelatine thicken slightly in the fridge for about 1 hour before spooning it over the fruit.

Oma says,

Serve this with frozen vanilla yogurt for a scrumptious finish to a traditional German meal.

For a more decadent dessert, serve with a dollop of whipped cream!
