Reviews for Bavarian Apple Torte
"This is always such a hit when I make it for someone. Definitely a fall favorite. I'm wondering if it is possible to freeze this at all. Someone asked me to make it for them for their Thanksgiving dinner and since I will be busy getting things together for my own dinner, I was wondering if I could make it a couple days before. Thanks for the recipe"
"I prepared this recipe for the first time on 5/1/14! This definitely is a keeper for me to use time and again! For filling: I did use 1/2 cup sugar & I used 1 tsp. vanilla extract instead of the original amount of 1/4 cup sugar and 3/4 tsp. vanilla extract! I used a mixture of 1/2 cup cinnamon-sugar with the 3 cup peeled thinly sliced apples (Granny Smith). I did grease and flour a 9" springform pan. I placed foil under the prepared pan and placed pan on a baking sheet. I baked 55minutes at 350o F. I ran knife around the cake to loosen from the pan and cooled at least 1 hr. I plan to share this dessert tomorrow with the Volunteer Office at the hospital where I work! Thank you for this recipe! delowenstein"
"We loved this dessert! I was happy to find a "different" apple recipe to make for my family"
"This was fabulous! It was essentially like a cheese cake with apple topping, so it was a hit!"
"This is an awesome dessert. My husband and I both love it and I've gotten rave reviews when I've shared the finished product with others."
"A Thanksgiving tradition for our family!"
"Made this today for Thanksgiving dinner. I followed the recipe to the letter. When I make it next time I will let it cook long then the time given. I felt the filling was not fully cooked and the same with the apples. I used cortland apples and they were still crunshy. But in general everyone liked it."
"Delicious, I have made in a corning ware pan, when I didn't have a large enough spring pan. Turned out delicious, one of my favorites all year."
"I made this for work. Everyone loved it and I was asked for the recipe.I used a 9 1/2" springform, since that's what I had, and checked it after 45 minutes of baking. It still needed more time. Ended up baking it between 50-55 minutes.I also lined the pan with parchment paper so it wouldn't leak. It worked well. After it cooled I gently peeled the paper down and used a knife to cut around the base of the torte."
"I came in first Place in a "Apple pie" contest with this recipe.I did add change things up from the recipe but not to much.Everyone who i made this for loved it!!"
"I took this to a reunion luncheon and it was such a hit. Everyone wanted the recipe. By time I went to get some, it was all gone. Now I guess I'll have to make another. It is wonderful."
"This is absolutely wonderful. Everytime I make it for a gathering I'm asked for the recipe."
"I have made this Torte many time and it always a hit at gatherings. Yummy!"
"I have never used a springform pan. Do you wait until the cake is totally cool before removing it from the pan?"
