Strawberry Torte

Strawberry Torte
A melt in the mouth dessert using the wonderfully sweet strawberries I received from Natoora. The cake mixture is quite clumpy and dry before it is baked, but don't worry, it spreads and fluffs up on cooking. The torte can be eaten hot or cold but is infinitely better with a big dollop of creme fraiche or cream. Why not try experimenting with other fruits - raspberries, blackberries, cherries.....


| Serves: 10 Slices  | Prep Time: 20 Minutes | Cook Time: 1 Hour  | Total Time: 1 Hour 20 Minutes |


  • 150g Ground Almonds
  • 175g Butter, softened (I used Roddas)
  • 175g Golden Caster Sugar
  • 175g Self Raising Flour
  • Zest 1 lemon
  • 1 egg and 1 yolk
  • 300g Strawberries, hulled and sliced


  • Step 1: Preheat oven to 180c/160fan and line a 23cm spring form tin with baking paper and butter the sides.
  • Step 2: Put all of the ingredients, apart from the strawberries in a food processor and blitz until well combined.
  • Step 3: In your prepared tin spoon in half the mixture and spread it out - because it is quite dry it is a bit tricky (try using a couple of forks).
  • Step 4: Place the sliced strawberries on top then put the other half of the mixture on top - don't worry if some strawberries are poking out. Remember the mixture is quite dry so it can be difficult to fully cover the strawberries.
  • Step 5: Bake for 1 hour (check to make sure it's not browning too much on top - if it is cover with foil).

  1. That looks delish. I love cakes with chunky bits of fruit studding the crumb.
