What Is a Torte?

Definition: Torte

A dense, rich cake of Central European origin. Unlike a sponge cake, a torte is made with little to no flour, but instead with ground nuts or breadcrumbs, as well as sugar, eggs, and flavorings. It is typically baked in a springform pan, and may be multilayered and filled with cream or jam, or covered with cream and fruit or nuts. Have you ever made a torte?
