What with my grandpa's blackberry bushes, and my dad picking wild blackberries, our house has become overrun by this delicious fruit. So far we have eaten them fresh, eaten them stewed, and the other day I decided to make a blackberry torte. A torte is a rich, layered cake filled with cream, mousse, or fruit, and usually made with ground almonds to give it a nutty flavour and denser texture. Based on the brands I used, each slice is about 277 calories.
