With summer coming on I thought I’d give you a typical German summer dessert recipe to celebrate with. Germans call it Biskuit (“beese-kveet”). Although it looks like the word “biscuit”, it translates as “sponge cake”. Not just a sponge cake, but specifically a sponge cake base to be topped with fresh fruit. In English we call the finished product a fruit torte; in German, Obstkuchen.
Incidentally, the difference between a fruit torte and a fruit tart is that a tart has a pie crust under the fruit instead of a sponge cake layer.
