Linzertorte – Daddy’s Birthday Cake Recipe

Happy belated Birthday via this blog, dad! Last week was my dads birthday. Since seemingly forever, one of his all-time favorite cakes is the so-called Linzertorte. My mom used to bake it for him every year at least once for his birthday; sometimes just in-between during the winter season. It's also a traditional Christmas season cake in Germany.

Also, my views on the blog have doubled within a short time; amazing! I have noticed there are a lot of unspoken topics out there, that everyone seems to shy away from or only talk about in an ideal, oh-so-perfect(non-existent)-way, ...
