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.

Thanks Gale .... I appreciate your willingness to help all of us.   
But, gee whiz, that's a copmplicated recipe.   And I don't think I own a double boiler....... I used to but don't think I've seen it since I moved here.  I think this cake may be beyond me. Embarassed

I wish someone would try this it is a fantastic cake.When I cut it I silce right down the center of the cake then I cut srtaight across the half and make 1 inch wide pieces,this is more than enough this is an extremely rich cake,you should be able to serve@ least 12 or more.I have made this for several people from Eastern Europe and they have said it was the best they have ever tasted.This is a once a year or special occasion torte.

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.

I'm not making dessert during Lent but it will happen shortly after Easter.  I'd do it for Easter, but have already decided I need rhubarb pie for Easter.

Nancy I bet you do have a double boiler.
It is a bowl set above a pan of simmering water.
Do not let the bottom of the bowl come in contact with the water. (for that reason I often use a glass bowl, just so I can watch the water level)

Nikki -- I do have clear glass bowls - all sizes and shapes.  I never thought of using them that way.  Thanks again

Gale G.:  Thanks for the recipe.  I'm going to print it, but don't know when I will have an opportunity to try it.  Would like to though.  I like to try different things.

I keep looking at that Torte recipes trying to figure out when I'll have a block of time to do it.  I will get it made sometime because it looks so good.  I know hubby will like it because it has so much icing in/on it.  He judges a cake by the amount of icing it has.
