Heidi's Raspberry Torte Recipe

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

Wonderfully easy Raspberry Torte ...

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 ...

Heidi's raspberry and blueberry torte!Here 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 your copy of Oma's favorites in her Special Occasion German Cakes & Tortes e-Cookbook.

Take a peek at all Oma's eCookbooks. They make sharing your German heritage a delicious adventure!

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.
