Bavarian Apple Torte

Come and join me for a wonderful slice of Bavarian Apple Torte that Lorrie from Fabric Paper Thread  had made, and she allowed me to share with you. Lorrie got this recipe from a cousin, and that's what we do....share the recipe love!  We can enjoy a slice together on my patio, and watch the bluejays that love to visit my waterfall.

I always love getting out my Harvest Time by Johnson Brothers teacup at the beginning of Fall.

Here's the beautiful torte, which I hope you try making real soon!

Yield: about 8

Bavarian Apple Torte

Lorrie shared this recipe recently, and she thoughtfully allowed me to post it. I told Lorrie that the hardest part about this recipe was peeling the apples! It's quite impressive and would be perfect for brunch or for dessert at a dinner party!


  • Layer One:
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Layer Two:
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Layer Three:
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (I added a few grates of nutmeg, also)
  • 4 cups peeled, sliced apples (I used three Gala apples )
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds (optional)


How to cook Bavarian Apple Torte

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Blend in flour to make a soft dough. Spread or press on bottom of 9 inch springform pan.
  2. Cream together the cream cheese and sugar. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well. Pour onto pastry in pan.
  3. Combine the sugar and cinnamon, add the apples and toss together. Arrange on cream cheese layer and sprinkle almonds on top.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, then increase baking temperature to 400 degrees and bake until the apples are tender, about 25 minutes more. If the almonds begin to brown too quickly, cover loosely with aluminum foil.
  5. Cool slightly. Remove from pan, loosening edges with a knife first. Cut into wedges and serve warm or at room temperature.

I was fortunate to be able to see my granddaughter, Ella, play volleyball, too.  She's tiny but mighty, and her team won all three games!
