      Used this for an edbertorte -- a strawberry torte -- yesterday. Batter was fairly simple to make and tasted delicious. Only trouble was that I scorched it a bit, but I put that down to the pan I was using which has a tendency to scorch and my oven running hot, which I knew about but forgot to monitor it. Will be making another tomorrow with the same recipe, just putting the pan on a higher rack and lowering the temperature a bit. The one with the recipe should be right for an average oven. In any case, as mentioned, the tortenboden itself is delicious and was also very forgiving of me cutting off the scorched bits. Edbertorte was beautiful and enjoyed by all.
