Almond Torte with Summer Berries

Here's the recipe for this AMAZING gluten-free almond torte with summer berries:


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 cups almond flour (finely ground almond)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Lemon rinds from 1 lemon
  • Summer berries
Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar together, mixing well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. In a separate bowl, mix almond flour with baking powder. Add egg/butter mixture to flour a little at a time while beating. Add lemon and vanilla extracts.

Pour into greased pan, and bake at 350°F for 50-55 minutes.

After the cake have cooled, brush some sugar syrup all around it, then assemble the berries, finish it off by brushing some strawberry jelly over the fruits.

p.s Hope you enjoyed it. =)

I'm glad you all like my recipes :-) I like the catering idea, but needs more study.
Dreamy: For the almond flour, I just use freshly grounded almond (without the skin).
Fashionista: Don't worry, I havnt forgotten your request, and I will definitely post a recipe soon.
Three dots: I use Philadelphia cream cheese.
Miss ya Kitten!
