Cherry Torte

As we learned previously, a torte is a pretty layer cake. This one sounds like a lovely layer cake with a zwieback crust, a layer of cherries and then a creamy topping. You could sprinkle the top with cocoa powder or chocolate shavings for a gorgeous finish.

Cherry Torte

1 1/2 cups zwieback crumbs

2 cups pitted sweet cherries

2 eggs

1/2 cup sour cream

2-3 cup sugar

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

Roll zwieback and place a thick layer two-thirds of the quantity into a well-buttered loose bottom pan. (Translation, make the crumbs, then spread 1 cup of them into a greased springlock pan) Cover crumbs with fruit. Mix beaten eggs, cream, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Pour over fruit, sprinkle with the rest of the crumbs. Bake in a moderate oven at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.

Once cooled remove the cake pan carefully.
