    Amethyst42's Note:

    In Manitoba, where I live, there is a significant population of Icelandic heritage. Thus, this recipe is a popular one on dainty trays in my area. Here is the story of Vineterta as told by my mother's recipe book, "Through the Years", from the Selkirk Ladies Hospital Auxiliary (1982): "Vineterte is known to us as an Icelandic Cake., sine it was introduced to us by the Icelandic settlers who came here a hundred years ago. Vinaterta is also known as Wine Torte.However, we recall a story regarding the origin of this cake. It was said to have originated in Vienna. In those days before Iceland had it's own university, students went to Vienna to study. There they were introduced to this famous torte. It is a popular cake, especially at Christmas time when it is cut into small slices and served on a tray of holiday dainties and cakes."
