very berry torte


After the bountiful crops we had this summer, I picked, cleaned and froze lots of our berries for the winter months. Hubby has a sweet tooth (luckily he works out everyday on the farm and with his saw mill and can afford to eat desserts without ever gaining weight),so here's a quick and easy "not too sweet" and oh so tasty dessert to make with all your yummy berries!

bottom:
1/2 c butter
1/2 c sugar
3 egg yolks
1 tbsp vanilla
Beat all ingredients

1 c all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking soda
Combine with the above ingredients until silky...no lumps!!
Bake in oven (preheated) at 350 degrees for 20 mins. Cool for 10 mins.

top:
1/2 c sugar
3 eggwhites
Beat mixture until stiff.
Fold in gently, 1/4 c raspberries, 1/4 c red currants, 1/4 c blueberries
Add the fruit and eggwhite mixture over top the cake part and bake for 30 mins at 350 degrees.

Very light and very tasty :)

Yes, give it a try :) It's been a crowd pleaser ever since I started making it. The torte is really light and fluffy and the berries add a nice sweet yet tart flavour to it. Enjoy!
