Esterhazy Torte?

LilZ | Apr 25, 2009 08:57 PM


I just got back from a wonderful trip to Vienna, where I basically ate cake two to three times a day. This culinary research led me to one conclusion -- the "Esterhazy Torte" is the most friggin' delicious dessert on the planet!!! This Hungarian dessert consists of 6 or so thin layers of a crunchy walnut cakes, layered with buttercream, covered with apricot glaze and fondant. It's ridiculous.

So -- does anyone know where I can find such a thing in Los Angeles? I will DRIVE to get it. And if that isn't in the cards, I'm happy to spend a day or two in my kitchen trying to recreate it, so any recipes or links to recipes would be great too.

Thanks so much!
