Heidi's Raspberry Torte recipe, aka Himbeertorte, 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!

My first taste of Heidi's Torte ...

#raspberrytorte #germancake #torteHere Heidi used a combination of raspberries and blueberries.

Above is 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!

It comes from the "Kochbuch der Frauengemeinschaft Wettrup" and is subtitled "Freude beim Zubereiten" meaning "it's fun to make."

Grab a copy of my own German Cake e-Cookbook in English to help you relive wonderful memories of Oma's kitchen. 

Sharing traditional German cakes, made using easily available ingredients, ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our heritage.

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.
