Hungarian Walnut Torte
Total TimePrep: 35 min. + chilling Bake: 20 min. + cooling
Baking powder should be 3 tsp.
I made this cake for the first time and the baked item was a birthday party hit with my Hungarian family. This recipe leaves out the coffee and adds a chocolate pudding mix to the frosting -- both aspects the children loved! Especially with the added dark chocolate shavings on top versus walnuts which children do not particularly like. The tasters were blown away. However to produce a 4-tier cake bakers will need to DOUBLE the recipe and make 4, 8-inch round cakes layered with frosting. Double up on EVERYTHING.
My husband is Hungarian and this is very close to the cake his mother makes, I have made this a few times and everyone loves it.
