"This elegant looking fruit torte is one of the recipes that a family member brought back after a stay in Germany, where strawberry season sees these cakes in all the bakeries and cafes. Thanks to her grandmother we enjoy this marvellous dessert that never fails to please. In the off season I drain canned peaches and arrange the slices making for a impressive looking dessert when fresh strawberries are not available. If you can't find the Oetker glaze, any of the clear fruit glaze mixes will work."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350, generously grease flan pan, flour to keep from sticking - I use cooking spray to grease pan

Step 2

Beat sugar and eggs until fluffy, add butter, salt, baking powder, and vanilla - mix well

Step 3

Alternately add flour and milk

Step 4

Spread into a flan pan, bake for 35 - 40 minutes or until edges begin to pull away from the sides of the pan and centre is firm to the touch

Step 5

Carefully remove from pan, cool on cake rack,when cool place cake on your special serving platter, ice bottom lightly using just enough to seal the cake, give it a few minutes to dry before adding the fruit

Step 6

Arrange strawberries ( I cut the strawberries in half arranging concentrically starting at the edge - for variation make a 'strawberry flower' in the centre using about five strawberry halves then arrange the rest of the berries around to the edge) you may go with halving, slicing or whole berries when arranging your fruit - whatever works best for you

Step 7

Prepare glaze according to directions cooling slightly and pour over

I did not have the correct pan but it turned out lovely! We all thoroughly enjoyed it! I did sub in coconut milk (Silk) as my granddaughter is dairy free. It looks like mine is a wee bit denser than your cake, but still really good! Thank you Gerry for another awesome dessert! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
