Icoberry Torte

A recipe from a Star Trek cookbook, this was apparently a favorite of Sisko on DS9. Although we don’t have icoberries, we’ll get through somehow, and make a nice light cake with a layer of pie filling!

Ingredients:

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 5 1/4 ounces sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 1/4 ounces all-purpose flour
  • 14 ounces blueberry pie filling
  • 2 tablespoons sugar + 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ice cream/whipped cream for serving

Grease a 9″ cake pan and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth and fluffy.

Add the salt and baking powder, then beat in the eggs one at a time.

Add the vanilla, then the flour, and beat until just smooth.

Transfer batter to the greased cake pan and spread evenly, then top with the pie filling.

Sprinkle with the cinnamon/sugar mix – this looks like A LOT now but is just a light taste of cinnamon in the finished product.

Bake 40-45 minutes, until set, then serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
