Daring Bakers: DobosTorte

The August 2009 Daring Bakers' challenge was hosted by Angela of A Spoonfulof Sugar and Lorraine of Not Quite Nigella. They chose the spectacular DobosTorte based on a recipe from Rick Rodgers' cookbook Kaffeehaus: ExquisiteDesserts from the Classic Caff├ęs of Vienna, Budapest, and Prague.

Oooh. Daring Bakers got back to their name this month. I actually partitioned a segment of my calander to make this one. You know, considering how little my social life is, it shocks me how busy I am sometimes.

Actually, I ended up not using the almonds, so pretend they aren't hiding the chocolate chips.

Then I turned on my iPod, ignored my children (it was Saturday so they were free to whine to the Businesman), and proceded to systematically make a mess in every bowl, every utensil and every horizontal surface in a 10 foot radius.

It's what Daring Bakers is all about.



I had some leftover toffee glaze so I pulled it and twisted it to form a lovely little spun sugar crown.



And when cut:



Not the most even of layers, but it didn't seem to affect the flavor.
