No-Bake Strawberry Key Lime Torte Recipe

Looking for a yummy spring dessert, but donít have time to bake? Strawberry Key Lime Torte is not only a great no-bake dessert, itís beautiful, delicious, easy, and light. This dessert can be made up to a day ahead, and shows off the spring berries that are appearing on grocers shelves and in farmerís markets.
Who can resist strawberry soaked angel food cake layered with a homemade key lime/cream mixture? If good strawberries arenít available, any type of berry can be substituted: blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries are great, and since the key lime curd is made in the microwave, this dessert is quick to put together. If there isnít time to decorate with whipped cream in a decorating bag as pictured, the dessert is also beautiful with a dollop of whipped cream on each wedge and a sprinkling of berries.

16 Servings

4 to 6 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
1 cup sugar

Key Lime Curd
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
3 ounces key lime juice
pinch salt

2 cups heavy whipping cream

14 ounces angel food cakes, cut into 1" squares

Sweetened whipped cream, for garnish
  1. Line the bottom of a 9" springform pan with parchment.
  2. Sprinkle the strawberries with the sugar, stir, and set aside.
  3. Key Lime Curd: Whisk together the egg yolks, and sugar; add the butter, lime juice, and salt.
  4. Microwave 1 minute; whisk until the butter is melted.
  5. Microwave 2 minutes.
  6. Whisk until smooth.
  7. Continue microwaving in 1 minute increments until the mixture boils. The curd is done when it coats a spoon but is still thin enough to pour.
  8. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the curd and place in the fridge or freezer to cool.
  9. Whip the cream until it forms stiff peaks; fold in the cooled lime curd.
  10. Spread 1 cup of the cream mixture over the bottom of the prepared pan; cover with half of the angel food cake cubes.
  11. Top with half of the strawberries, including juice and spread half of the lime mixture over the strawberries.
  12. Add the remaining angel food cake cubes and top with the remaining strawberries and juice.
  13. Spread the remaining lime mixture over the top.
  14. Cover with plastic wrap; press down to compact.
  15. Refrigerate 4-6 hours or until thoroughly chilled (or up to 2 days ahead)
  16. To Serve:Run a knife around the outside of the torte; remove from the pan and place on a serving platter.
  17. garnish with sweetened whipped cream and whole strawberries.
