"A strawberry what?"
"Strawberry torte darling – it’s a pudding."
I just couldn’t face eating another strawberry so I decided to make a strawberry and cinnamon torte. It was very easy to put together but needed a whole hour to bake in the oven. The aroma of baking strawberries was heavenly.
|The strawberries are sandwiched between two layers of cake batter. I bought this cake tin about thirty years ago to make a birthday cake for Sarah's third birthday.|
The torte is supposed to finished off with a sprinkling of icing sugar. I didn’t have any so I put some castor sugar in my Moulinex whizzer, didn’t fix the top on properly and managed to completely wreck the machine. Sigh.
The torte tastes good though without the icing sugar. I shall serve it with creme fraiche for lunch.
