Oma Gerhild Fulson Obsttorte Recipe


Quick and easy fruit flan recipe! Only takes ten minutes from start to finish. No bake required!
 Prep Time: 10  Bake Time: 0 (no bake!) Total Time: 10




  1. Prepare 1 package of Dr Oetker instant vanilla pudding (using only 1¾ cup milk instead of the required 2 cups). Let pudding thicken and then spread onto cold cake base.
  2. Cover with fruit (canned or fresh)
  3. Cover with Dr. Oetker's Tortenguss or clear cake glaze
  4. Allow to cool in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours

How to make your own Tortenguss:

  • For a clear glaze, choose apple or white grape juice.
  • For a red glaze, choose a dark red berry or grape juice. If you don’t have juice, then use water, adding lemon juice and sugar to taste.
  1. Stir 1 tablespoon potato starch into ¼ cup juice until dissolved.
  2. Bring ¾ cup juice to a simmer.
  3. Stir in the starch mixture and simmer until thickened, about 30 seconds, stirring constantly.
  4. Let cool slightly and spoon over fruit.


An easy and traditional alternative is to use apricot jam. Heat it in the microwave, adding a bit of water if it’s still too thick. Pass through a sieve, cool a bit and brush on fruit.
