Years ago a neighbor of Polish descent promised to make my daughter a cake (she passed away, and I miss her, and I wish she'd shown me how to make this cake!) I think she said it was 12 or 16 layers, each layer was brushed onto an 8" or 9" cake pan and either broiled or baked for about a minute. Then after all layers cooled they were layered with caramel or some kind of frosting and the top layer was frosted in chocolate.
I think a Dobosh torte comes closest, but it's not the real thing. I know I asked her about that, but she scoffed - saying that a Dobosh didn't come close.
Has anyone heard of this?
I have done a lot of research on this, and hope that someone who actually knows what this is can help.
