Description of Christmas Schmoo Torte Recipe

This torte is the Canada best recipe. Or to be more specific it is Manitoba regional iconic cake. Packed with pecans, heavy cream and caramel sauce. Can be illegal if borders for cake exist.

I made this torte many, many times.One of them went into this post Shmoo Torte – a gooey torte with a mysterious past (Winnipeg). So, now you are wondering why I am doing it again?

Well, my original recipe was for 9 inch cake pan and I was not on diet.

Now, I am but I am not about to give up on tortes, cakes or desserts. So, I was thinking to make a smaller version of my favorite cake, Shmoo Torte.

Smaller version got another letter so it is now, Schmoo torte. Did I confuse you? Of course I did. But it is not my fault.

The name is what is so confusing. It can be Schmoo or Shmoo. Because of that the Universe is taking so much time to make it viral. But with the help of God, Dr. Google and you my sweet baking nation it is the time to share this recipe. With the whole sweet world. From Europe to China to USA this recipe is the recipe that MUST be made.

Because we need something to unify us and this is it. The torte from Canada called Schmoo Torte or Shmoo. Who cares?

The recipe is the same. Delicious Canadian layer cake with whipped cream filling and homemade caramel sauce.

When baked remove from the oven and let it cool.

Important:

At this point you can cool the cake, remove from the baking pan and place into the freezer. You can keep it in the freezer for a few days or until you are ready to make the chocolate fillings.

HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE FILLING?

(There will be 2 filling made from one base filling.)

To the mixing bowl add 3 eggs yolks and sugar. Mix for about 3 minutes.

Then add 2 Dr. Oetker Vanilla pudding, flour, corn starch and 1 cup milk. (room temperature).

Mix until all ingredients are incorporated. (another minute or two)

melt the chocolate

chop the chocolate bananas or white chocolate

whip 1 1/4 cup of the the heavy cream

beat the butter

mix the cooled filling with beaten butter, then add whipped heavy cream. Mix everything together.

divide the filling into 2 equal parts.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate using the double boiler method.

Remove the chocolate from the heat and let it cool.

Chop the chocolate bananas or white chocolate to small pieces. I used 6 chocolate bananas.

Add the butter room temperature to the mixing bowl and mix until smooth. Set aside.

Whip the heavy cream and whip it (if using) until medium to stiff peaks form.

When your yellow pudding is cooled, add the butter and mix until incorporated.

Then add whipped heavy cream and just quickly mix.

Then divide the whole cream between two bowls.

To the first bowl add melted semi sweet or dark chocolate and mix.You just make the chocolate filling.

Now, you are ready for sunshine filling.

Then add chocolate filling + yellow sunshine filling

Cover and transfer to the fridge or freezer for a few hours.

Whip heavy cream and whip it.

Remove the cake from the freezer and add the 3 layer of heavy cream.
