Strawberries and Cream Torte

The delicate taste lingers in your mouth for hours and has you craving more of this light, juicy dessert that holds spring and summer in each bite…

Enjoy a piece of this torte in the afternoon… lay back…. and dream….


For the strawberries

  • Cut half of the strawberries in half and set them aside to be used to decorate the torte. Cut the other half into 4 pieces.
  • Add them to a wide pan along with the 125 g of sugar and the cognac. Cook them over high heat. At first they will release a lot of liquid, but it will soon reduce. You want to get a good amount of syrup, not a watery syrup. This should take about 5 minutes over high heat. When ready, remove from heat.
  • Add the salt and stir. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate to chill.

For the cream

  • Beat the cream cheese along with the remaining 125 g of sugar and vanilla in a mixer. Use the paddle attachment and beat until fluffy.
  • Switch to the whisk attachment, lower the speed and add the heavy cream. Scrape down the sides of the mixer’s bowl with a spatula when necessary. Turn up the speed and beat until the mixture thickens.
  • Refrigerate until needed.

To assemble

  • Place the first layer of sponge cake on a serving platter. Add the strawberries saved to decorate. Place them all the way around the edge of the cake, cut side down, one next to the other. Add a half of the cooked strawberries and cover with 1/3 of the cream.
  • Place the next layer of sponge cake on top. Add the rest of the decorative strawberries all around the edge as you did before. Add the rest of the cooked strawberries and cover with another 1/3 of cream.
  • Place the last layer of sponge cake on top. Top with the remaining cream and decorate with strawberries.
  • Ready!
Don’t forget to sprinkle strawberries with a little bit of salt… it really enhances their flavor!
