'Schaum' is 'foam' in German, and it's a nice light foamy meringue! Bit chewy which is delicious, it was an easy recipe and came out beautifully.

Recipe is excellent! However, I really don't like your new format for printing recipes. Is it really necessary to make the font and spacing so big that every recipe is at LEAST 2 pages long, even with eliminating the picture, nutritional info, and wine pairing? I'm so hoping that you can add an option for that so that we can fit everything on 1 page. Thanks!

The person who wrote that it was "the worst recipe I have ever attempted to make" didn't make it right. Ideally you need a really good mixer, such as a KitchenAid. You need to beat the egg whites until they are glossy and hold stiff peaks -- the stiffer the better. If you do that, the schaum torte will come out great. Everyone just raved over it. I used 9 egg whites (probably one too many) and the full 2 cups of sugar. I didn't think it was too sweet.

This is the worst recipe I have ever attempted to make. None of it works, you end up with a horrid eggy mess. This pastry abomination has ruined my taste buds, and my life. I am going to kill myself on Friday because of what this Torte has done to me. Thanks a lot, goodbye forever.

Absolutely loved this. I used blueberries and raspberries and a blackberry & lavender sauce. Sooooo good. Both of my great nephews liked it too. It was so easy and convenient to make.

I forgot to mention that by using the cornstarch to replace 1 cup of the sugar, & serving 16, the WW Points Plus are 2.

I served this for Easter dinner to rave reviews, even from 2 teen-age grandsons! When I started to make it I realized I only had 1 cup of sugar, so I followed the advice as reviewed by "speek" & used 2 TBSP of corn starch for the other cup of sugar. Some of the adults commented that it had "just the right amount of sweetness".

I used 1 1/2 cups of sugar and sweetened my strawberries a little so I would have some juice. My family loved it. Next time I will try making it on parchment paper for individual servings.
