What Exactly Is a Torte?

A torte (pronounced “tort-eh”) is an incredibly rich cake with several layers of different flavors that can be stuffed with anything from mousses and jam to nut pastes and cream fillings. It usually has no frosting on the outside but instead relies on its distinct ingredients to give it flavor.  The most popular type of torte is the Sachertorte – a chocolate cake filled with apricot jam and covered in chocolate glaze – which was invented by Austrian confectioner Franz Sacher in 1832. However, there are now many other variations of this classic dessert, including coconut tortes.
