Instructions for Strawberry Blitz Torte recipe
Sift flour, baking powder and salt 3 times. Cream shortening and sugar slowly and cream mixture until light and fluffy.
Beat egg yolks until they are thick and add to creamed mixture. Stir in milk and vanilla. Add dry ingredients and beat until batter is
smooth. Spread into 2 greased 8 inch layer cake pans.
For meringue, beat egg whites, salt and cream of tartar until they stand in soft peaks when the beater is lifted. Add sugar 2 tablespoons at a time, beating very thoroughly after each addition. Add vanilla. Lightly pile one half of the margarine mixture over the batter in each pan. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees about 35 minutes. Remove from oven, loosen sides of tortes from the pans and remove them to wire racks, keep the meringue side up. When cool, spread strawberry filling between the layers.
Strawberry filling Combine 1/2 cup of whipping cream and 2 tablespoons confectionary sugar whip until stiff. Fold in one cup sliced strawberries; spread between layers of Blitz Torte.
