Almond Blackberry Torte
Blackberry season is upon us and I love seeing these black beauties in every corner market. I love the slightly tart taste of blackberries and adore them especially combined with other berries. The sight is simply gorgeous. Seriously, few fruit arrangements look as pretty as a medley of blackberries, raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. A perfect topping for any dessert. A splash of color. A ration of health.
Almond tortes/crustless tarts are a more nutritious alternative to cake, easy to make and very versatile. They are unleavened and bake quickly. They are an almond heaven for almond lovers.
