Runeberg torte (Finnish: Runebergintorttu; Swedish: Runebergstårta) is a Finnish pastry flavored with almonds and arrack or rum and it weighs about 100 grams. Raspberry jam inside a sugar ring is commonly placed on top of the tart.

The torte got its name from the Finnish poet Johan Ludvig Runeberg (1804–1877) who, according to legend, enjoyed the torte with punsch for every breakfast. Runeberg tortes are typically eaten only in Finland and are generally available in stores from the beginning of January to Runeberg's birthday on February 5.

History

Popular legend says that Runeberg's wife, Fredrika Runeberg, created the torte. Her recipe book from the 1850s has the torte's recipe, which is believed to be a variation of an earlier recipe by confectioner Lars Astenius from Porvoo.
