So after reading that title are you thinking what the heck is a torte? Well it’s like a cake. But usually it has little to no flour (which kind of makes the name redundant) and often the flour is replaced by ground nuts. This one has no ground nuts just no flour. I did some reading about them and it seems there is a bit of debate about the exact specifications of ground nuts or no ground nuts. Torte also comes from the word “cake” in German.


This recipe comes from the Food Network. I’ve made it a few times and it’s always worked out and always been tasty. Lucy loves it with a little icing sugar sprinkled on top and a raspberry.



So in a recap, A torte:

  1. Has little or no flour,
  2. Almost always round often with elaborate designs and glazes over top
  3. Is heavier in texture and taste
  4. Rises very little in baking

Now that list shouldn’t be scary 😉 This one is super easy and quick. And its gluten free, you know if you are into that sort of thing. It’s tasty, and I’m into that sort of thing.
