Run a rubber spatula around the inside of the pan.

Release and remove the side of the pan but leave the bottom in place.

Slice and serve. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.

  1. Haha, it’s funny it would be called Torte! I mostly make plum cake that looks more like a plum pizza than a torte while using apples for a recipe similar to yours (calling it Apfelkuchen rather than Apfeltorte, though), but this looks awfully tasty indeed and we shall try it for sure. 🙂
