May 6th ,the birthday of the Sigmund Freud…
“Flowers are restful to look at. They have neither emotions nor conflicts” by Sigmund Freud
a saying that rings true to the colorful Spring flowers blooming everywhere and now I understand why I can sit and stare at them for hours..and one of my favorite colorful Torte to make in Spring..I guess because of the bright yellow of the pineapple is a Torte all’ananas or Pineapple Torte.
Torte all’Ananas (Pineapple Torte)
(for 4 people)
2/3 cup (150 g) unsalted butter
3/4 cup (160 g) sugar
2/3 cup (150) g flour

Butter an 8” cake pan. Dust pan-sides and bottom-with sugar. Cut pineapple slices in half and place in bottom of pan.
