Special Strawberry Torte


  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 cups whipped topping
  • 3 to 3-1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries


  • 1. Prepare cake mix according to package directions, substituting four egg yolks for the whole eggs. Pour the batter into two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans.
  • 2. In a large bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add 2/3 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form. Carefully spread over batter; sprinkle with almonds and remaining sugar.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until meringue is golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks, meringue side up, to cool completely.
  • 4. Place one cake layer with meringue side up on a serving plate. Spread with half of the whipping topping and top with half of the strawberries. Repeat layers.
