The German Blitz Torte is a delicious example of one of the best cake recipes that you can whip together quickly using ingredients you already have on hand. Special for holidays and easy enough for a family dinner. YUMMY!
The Hazelnut Torte is also so simple to make. I just rolled out purchased marzipan to cover the cake and decorated with whipped cream and almonds. It even surprised me how simple it was and how beautiful it looked. My Mutti used to make this Hazelnut Torte all the time. It was her specialty.
Often she just served it plain, without the marzipan, and just dusted it with icing sugar. It still tasted good, but, in my opinion, the marzipan was the crowning touch!
German Cake Recipes really are the BEST!
