Chef Chuck's Blueberry Torta


Torta di Mirtilli


Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving Day, we all have so much to be thankful for.  This blueberry torta is the perfect way to start your day with a cup of coffee.  I used almond flour, fresh blueberries and a sweet icing.

Blueberry Torta  
2 cups fresh blueberries
6 tablespoons butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
3/4 cup ground almonds
3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt 

Icing
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla 


Place blueberries in a bowl and sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar on top, set aside. In a mixer cream butter and sugar together for a minute, add 1 egg at a time, then vanilla. In a food processor chop almonds till powder form. Slowly add sifted ground almond flour, flour, baking powder and salt. Using a 9 or 10 inch pan, butter well, pour in batter, top with blueberries. Bake 350 degrees for 35 - 40 minutes. Drizzle icing on a warm torta.
