Tantalizing Torte Recipes - 9 recipes

A Torte is usually a multi-layered cake filled with buttercream, jam, or cream, but it can also be rich, moist, and dense single-layered cake. Tortes contain ground nuts or breadcrumbs in place of some or all of the flour typically used in a cake. Chocolate, almond, lemon and berry are just a few terrific torte flavors to try.
