Daring Bakers make Dobos!

The August 2009 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Angela of A Spoonful
of Sugar and Lorraine of Not Quite Nigella. They chose the spectacular Dobos
Torte based on a recipe from Rick Rodgers’ cookbook Kaffeehaus:  Exquisite
Desserts from the Classic Caffés of Vienna, Budapest, and Prague.


This month’s Daring Bakers challenge was quite a hit in my house. Dobos is Graham’s #1 cake. Every birthday means a Dobos. He’s tried them from various bakeries in Toronto and Mississauga, each one slightly different. This summer, we were fortunate enough to try Dobos from Demel, the famous Austrian bakery with a branch in NYC. 

Graham and I really enjoyed making the cake. We did the buttercream on Friday night and put it in the fridge, then the cake and the caramel on Saturday night. A slice was enjoyed Sunday night, then the rest at our last dinner in Mississauga on Monday night, with Graham’s family.
