Quick, delicious and foolproof! This impressive dessert is light and looks beautiful on a cake pedestal. Teetotalers can omit the liqueur and use a small amount of almond flavoring to taste.

Perfection!
This is perfectly delicious. A note to all. A torte is not a cake. 2 tbsp of flour is more than most torte recipes contain. Also note that you should use an 8 inch cake pan, not a 9 inch. I think you'll love it if you prepare as directed.
