Linzer Torte

This traditional Austrian Cake, the Linzer Torte, has already been delivered during the Biedermeier period (1815-48) to a lot of various countries. This cake is a fame, well known in Europe, and perhaps in the whole world. It makes that the name of the city Linz is spoken in a sympathetic consideration with expressed comfort and pleasure.

In the year 1822 Johann Konrad Vogel (1796 - 1883) immigrated from Ansbach (Bavaria) to the Austrian city Linz, and started the mass production and the world wide delivery of the cake. But that does not make him to it's creator.

Already the princely cook from Salzburg "Conrad Hagger" describes in his cookery book in 1719 a special cake with sweet and good "Linzer Dough", and he may have relied thereby on older handwritten sources. In the Biedermeier period the popularity of this cake increased rapidly.
