The preparation is easy thanks to these step-by-step instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 180 °C top/bottom heat. Grease a springform pan (26 cm in diameter) and dust with flour.
  • For the dough: Mix wheat flour, hazelnuts, baking powder, sugar, spices and salt in a bowl. Add egg and butter and knead everything into a smooth dough. Wrap the dough in cling film and chill for about 30 minutes.
  • Roll out half of the dough thinly on a lightly floured surface and place in the springform pan. Spread the jam evenly on top.
  • Roll out the rest of the dough as well and cut it into strips as desired or cut out motifs with a cookie cutter. Either place strips of dough on top of the jam in a grid shape or cover the jam with the dough motifs.
  • Brush the dough rack with beaten egg and bake the cake until golden brown, about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  • Eat directly or let it rest for several days in an airtight package, for the special aroma.
  • Instead of the typical grid pattern, the Linzer Torte can also be topped with cut-out motifs such as stars. (Symbolic image) © Shotshop/IMAGO

    This is how Linzer Torte stays fresh for a long time

    To extend the shelf life of the Linzer Torte, it should be stored in a cool, dry place. A cellar or a pantry with a temperature of ten to 15 degrees Celsius is ideal. The cake should be stored in an airtight package so that it does not dry out. This keeps it fresh for up to three weeks and makes it wonderfully aromatic.

    Alternatively, the Linzer Torte can also be frozen wrapped in foil. It can be kept for up to three months. Before eating, the cake should then thaw in the refrigerator.

    The Linzer Torte is a classic Christmas cake that is not only delicious, but also a real eye-catcher. With its nutty taste and aromatic lattice pattern, it is an absolute delight – not only during the Advent season.
