Hungarian Torte “Esterhazy”. Named after Prince Paul III Anton Esterházy de Galántha (1786–1866), a member of the Esterházy dynasty and diplomat of the Austrian Empire. It was invented by Budapest confectioners in the late 19th century and soon became one of the most famous cakes in the lands of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy.
My version is 8 inches, 6 individually baked layers (meringue with chopped walnuts [optional: almonds] dough), filled with vanilla and hazelnut infused Bavarian creme with white chocolate topping and a dark chocolate design.
4 layers of chocolate cake; the middle of the torte stuffed with cream puffs filled with chocolate Bavarian cream, and surrounded by creamy soufflé. At 9 inches, and over 5 pounds, this one is great for a party. 3 different types of cream; no artificial ingredients. Rich, creamy and delicious, but not overly sweet.
Inspired by the popular Ferrero Rocher candy, this torte has all the flavors that make them a tasty favorite for all occasions. 9 inch, over 2 1/2 pounds; four layers of rich chocolaty hazelnut flavored delight. Decorated to your specifications (see suggestions below) with real Ferrero Rocher. 10+ servings.
Price: Starting at $25.00 (1/2 torte also available)
