Blitz Torte

Yield 8 servings

Ingredients

  • Filling
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups coconut, divided

How to Make It

  1. Prepare Filling, and cool.

  2. Beat butter and 1/4 cup sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add yolks and milk, beating until smooth.

  3. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating until blended; stir in vanilla. Pour into 2 well-greased 9-inch round cakepans.

  4. Beat egg whites at medium speed until frothy. Gradually add remaining 1/2 cup sugar and powdered sugar, beating 3 minutes or until soft peaks form and sugar dissolves. Spread meringue evenly over batter. Sprinkle evenly with coconut.
