Schaum Torte With Berries and Cream

When I was a little girl I was always thrilled when Grandma made made this dessert.

Schaum Torte With Berries and Cream

6 egg whites
2 cups sugar
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp baking powder
2 cups raspberries or strawberries
1.5 cups whipping cream
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Beat egg whites until stiff. Add the sugar and beat several minutes more. Mix in the vinegar and baking powder. Pour into an ungreased pie pan, or form into 8 small mounds on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour at 275 degrees. Meanwhile, place berries in a bowl and crush gently with a spoon. Set aside. Pour cream into blender and whip at high speed, gradually adding sugar and vanilla, until peaks form but are not stiff. When torte has cooled, top with berry syrup and whipped cream.
