Blueberry Torte

Blueberry Torte
There was one container of local Blueberries sitting on the bottom shelf of our fridge.  There was one container until this past weekend!  It had been too hot to bake!  Now, it was cooler outside & the Blueberries were beckoning me.  Gone was the 8 day heat wave.  Thank goodness!  It's summer, but we do not live in a southern state.  Heat waves that are not as long as that one are much easier to take.

A Blueberry Torte had been on my mind.  This is a great dessert to bake using Marian Burros' & Lois Levine's Plum Torte recipe.  Then, change it a bit.  We like the taste of Blueberries better than Plums, so I bake a Blueberry Torte.   

More of my changes:
  • Use 2 Egg Whites + 1 Whole Egg instead of 2 Whole Eggs.
  • Add 1 teaspoon Cinnamon into batter.
  • Add 1/4 Cup Milk (I use Soy Milk) into batter.
  • Sprinkle less Cinnamon/ Sugar on top.  
Ready to place in the oven!
Rather than eat every last piece until the Torte is gone, I cut it into slices.  Who can resist this yummy dessert the day it is baked?  We sure cannot!  But, a little self control is good.  The extra individual slices are packaged in sandwich bags, then into Freezer Bags.  Into the freezer they go.  This Torte is delicious when defrosted, too!

If you have 2 Cups of Blueberries, bake this Torte!  If you do not have Blueberries, put them on your grocery list!  It is so good!  Oh, don't forget to add a small scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream on top before serving a slice!
