The word 'dobos' means 'like a drum' in Hungarian. However, this cake is named after its creator, Hungarian pastry chef Josef Dobos.
Fourteen Layer Chocolate Cake
Fourteen very thin layers with chocolate between each layer. Hope you enjoy this! I am from Georgia and make it all the time for church functions and family reunions.
I first tried this at baking school, and I became addicted to it...it is a layered dessert of a thin cake with ground almonds, filled with ganache and coffee buttercream, and topped with more ganache. It's a lot of steps, but well worth the effort. You can make all the parts a few days in advance and store, tightly covered, in the refrigerator. Just be sure to let the buttercream and ganache soften for a while at room temperature before spreading.
A four layer dark chocolate torte with a cream cheese and cream frosting. This cake is a family tradition. Every occasion deserves a Chocolate Torte!
Black Forest Cake II
Wonderful chocolate layer cake which is soaked in Kirsch liqueur, with cherry filling.
This torte is delicious and very rich with a brownie-like texture studded with walnuts and topped with a chocolate glaze.
This is pretty darn close to the original classic dessert produced by the Sacher Hotel in Vienna, Austria. It is a dense, not-too-sweet, apricot and chocolate concoction. It is a lot of work but WELL worth the effort!
Apple Bavarian Torte
This torte is made in a springform pan. Cream cheese, almonds, and apples deck this to the nines! Enjoy this dessert with your loved ones during the holidays.
Pumpkin Torte II
This pumpkin dessert has a graham cracker crust and cream cheese and pumpkin layers. It's finished with whipped topping and walnuts.
Black Forest Cake I
This recipe delivers a classic version of the original Black Forest cake with whipped cream frosting and sour cherries.
Sybil's Old Fashioned Lemon Layer Cake
This is one of my grandmother's recipes, a Southern classic. It is similar to a doberge--six thin layers with a tart lemon filling. I usually need 3 large fresh lemons for this recipe to produce the zest and juice.
Based on the Hungarian Dobos torte (pronounced Do-bash), this cake was developed in New Orleans and is now a staple throughout Louisiana. It's my husband's all-time favorite and has become a birthday tradition.
