Forgotten Torte

 Forgotten Torte
This torte is "forgotten" in the oven overnight, but we never forgot how good it tastes when we eat it!
10-12 ServingsPrep: 10 min. + standing


  • 6 egg whites, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Red food coloring, optional
  • Raspberries or strawberries


  • In a large bowl, beat egg whites, cream of tartar and salt at medium
  • speed until foamy. Add sugar a little at a time, beating well. Add
  • extracts. Continue beating until stiff glossy peaks form. Grease the
  • bottom only of a 9-in. tube pan with removable bottom. Spread batter
  • evenly in pan. Place in a preheated 450° oven and immediately
  • turn off heat. Let stand in oven overnight. The next day, loosen
  • edges of torte with sharp knife and turn onto serving platter. Just
  • before serving, whip cream until stiff; tint with food coloring if
  • desired. Frost with cream and top with berries. Yield: 10-12
