Schaum Torte


This is a simple recipe that tastes as wonderful and authentic as the dessert you would get in a German restaurant. I prefer to use strawberries, but anything goes with this one! You can make smaller mounds to have meringue cookies ...a low-fat snack!

  • ½ cup egg whites

  • 2 teaspoons vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 2 cups white sugar

  • ½ gallon vanilla ice cream

  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen sweetened strawberries, thawed


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Butter a large baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.

  2. In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Blend in vinegar and vanilla. Gradually add sugar, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. With a large spoon, drop meringue in 8 mounds (about 4 inches diameter), close together on baking sheet. Indent the center of each meringue with the back of a spoon.

  3. Bake in preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours. Turn off oven, and let shells cool in the oven, about 1 hour.

  4. To serve: Fill each shell with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and smother with thawed strawberries.
