Dobos Torte - Daring Bakers

The August 2009 Daring Bakers' challenge was hosted by Angela of A Spoonful of Sugar and Lorraine of Not Quite Nigella. They chose the spectacular Dobos Torte based on a recipe from Rick Rodgers' cookbook Kaffeehaus: Exquisite Desserts from the Classic Caffés of Vienna, Budapest, and Prague. Well to me this wasn't a real challenge because I grew up on this cake and some years ago I learnt from my mom how to make it. I decided to go big and baked a huge torta of 16 layers.

It's absolutely gorgeous!!
I assume you doubled the quantities of the original recipe (or tripled? :)) )? I found your blog (and I love it) looking for kurtoskalacs ;)
