In Response to OK Nancy here is the Torte Recipe:
Hungarian Dobos Torte ( Dobos means like a drum in Hungarian ) This is not really difficult to make but it is time consuming I always make these a day a head of time. DOBOS TORTE Cake 10 EXTRA LARGE egg yolks 10 EXTRA LARGE egg whites 10 Tabs. sugar 10 Tabs. flour 3 teas.baking powder Zest of one lemon 1/8 teas.salt Beat the egg yolks and sugar until thick and lemon yellow Add flour,baking powder,lemon zest and salt mix well Beat the egg white until stiff and fold into the first mixture. I use an 8 or 9" cake pan which I spray with cooking spray (I use canola oil spray) spread the batter evenly over the bottom of the pan,just about an 1/8 '' I do two pans at once Bake in a pre heated 350* oven for about 5 min.They will be spongy.Take out of the pan and cool on a rack,when cool place parchment paper in between layers,until ready to frost Repeat this process until all the batter is used.You should end up with 8-10 very thin layers.Now for the frosting. Frosting: 8 X-TRA LARGE Eggs Beaten 1 Cup Sugar 2 oz.melted semi sweet baking chocolate 1/2 Cup Water Stir this all together to mix well Cook in a double boiler,over a med -low temperature until thick like a pudding stir constantly so the eggs don't curdle ( I've had this happen but it can be corrected but it will take some beating I will explain in a bit.) COOL COMPLETELY Beat 1 pound of unsalted butter until light,slowly beat in the cooled pudding and beat well,I do this with my mixer.If the eggs got a little curdled just keep beating until smooth.Frost in between each layer,sides and top.This is a very labor intense cake but believe me this is the best thing I have ever tasted in my life.Well worth the time to make.The original recipe calls for a hard carmel top but I prefer the frosting lol! I'll have to look on YOUTUBE they may have a tutorial if you want to see this made.There are many variations just like any other cake I tasted this one and I have never looked any further.

Ok Gale, I've ignored this recipe long enough. I've printed it, saved it and determined that I must try this torte!! I'll have to make it when company is coming so I'm sure there isn't any left here for the two of us! We can't be trusted to refrain from stuffing ourselves with great cake!
Thanks for posting the recipe.
