Things to know about Reform Torta Recipe

There are very few traditional cakes in Serbia. Reform torta is one of the few. There are no real traces of the origins of this cake. Most sources say that the cake is from the time of reforms in socialistic Yugoslavia in the 1940s. At that time eggs became cheap so this cake became a thing. Adding to the fact that this cake is fully Serbian and doesn’t have influences from other cuisines, is the fact that the creme for this cake is unique. To be exact, the rest of the world uses the classic cake creme (crème pâtissière). That is a creme that contains milk and flour to help eggs thicken. Serbian creme for this cake uses just eggs, sugar, and butter and is made cooked on steam and for a longer time. This makes this cake a little bit more difficult to make. In Serbia, this cake is made for every occasion: birthdays, weddings, and slava.
