Walnut Blitz Torte

IMG_3942

jillpickle: Blitz Torte (or sometimes called German Blitz Torte) was one of Bill’s childhood favorites that his mom made for special occasions.  From what I’ve read, it seems that this was popular in the 1950’s and created in America, not Germany.  It appears that most of the recipes I found consisted of 2 layers of butter cake topped with a meringue and almonds with a custard filling.  Bill’s mom used walnuts instead of almonds so I did find a recipe with walnuts.  Making all of the components: cake, meringue and custard was time consuming but worth the effort!  I didn’t want a huge cake that only the 2 of us would eat so I cut the recipe in half and used (2) 6″ cake pans.  The result was a tiny buttery, crunchy sweet cake!  Tastes great topped with sweetened whipped cream!     Walnut Blitz Torte.
