The challenge for Week 51 of Reddit’s 52 Weeks of Baking Challenge was to bake a traditional Christmas dessert from another country. I chose this Bavarian apple torte. I’m not sure how authentic it is but this recipe, and similar variations, are quite popular online so I went for it. I followed the recipe except I used just two apples instead of four. Frankly, I was tired of peeling and slicing apples. I had enough to cover the top completely with a pretty thick layer so I think I got the desired effect.
I made it at my parents’ house and, between the four of us, we ate the whole thing in two days. I thought it tasted awesome and it looks very fancy for the amount of time and effort I put into it. I would definitely make it again.
