A torte is a rich, usually multilayered, cake that is filled with whipped cream, butter creams, mousses, jams, or fruits. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torte

 

As I raised a piece of strawberry torte to my lips, strawberry not plum despite the recipe's name* since that's the fruit on hand, I considered a friend's comment that this did not sound like a torte, so once done enjoying the rich dessert embedded with fruit I consulted the internet and Harold McGee and Mark Bittman and realized there isn't unanimity in how torte is defined and then I thought whatever it's called, it's easy and delicious and I'll just leave it at that.
