Casa Sarabella Fruit Torte


Hayom Yom Shlishi – Liluyi Nishmas my father Rav Aron ben Harav Menachem Mendel A”H In honor of Tu B’Shvat and Miami’s sweetest stone fruit season (even better than the summer) my absolute favorite fruit torte! And yes Northeners, you can use apples and pears until it’s summer by you,   It’s so simple… you can call it a pie! No mixer, any fruit is just perfect; plum peach nectarine combo is my fave!   My recipe is a combination of that famous classic NYT plum torte, the Chic cookbook recipe and my friend’s Rivki H.  Experiment and give it YOUR personal touch!


1. Preheat oven 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Macerate fruit w/little lemon juice and cinnamon in a large ziploc.
3. In a medium bowl, mix (whisk or fork) oil and sugar, then add eggs, vanilla, and zest and mix.
4. Combine together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to the bowl and mix.
5. Grease pan (any size, I use an eight-to-nine-inch round), pour in the batter covering surface evenly. Remove fruit from bag, lightly pat off some moisture and scatter over the dough, covering it completely. Finish with a light dusting of sugar, dash of cinnamon.
6. Bake 45 minutes to one hour depending on pan size. When toothpick in center is clean, pie nicely browned and smells divine – ready to enjoy!
7. Remember the secret ingredient is always love – sprinkle generously!


Recipe doubles nicely.
