Esterházy Torta: Walnut Cream Coffeehouse Cake

esterhazy cake slices by antonis achilleos

In the late 1800s Hungary enjoyed a coffeehouse culture of delicious fancy tortes and great coffee. Philosophers, artists, musicians and politicians gathered in coffeehouses to share ideas and camaraderie while eating cake! We’ll teach you to make one of the classics.

Together, we'll make Esterházy Torta, an elegant dessert that could end up being your hallmark. It’s made up of thin, soft layers of toasted walnut cake, filled with a luscious Swiss vanilla and toasted walnut buttercream, and topped with a white and dark chocolate poured fondant glaze in a distinctive design resembling the traditional French Napoleon pastry. It’s a classic sold at all traditional Hungarian bakeries. Join us for some Hungarian flavor!

You'll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, one Esterházy Torta, and great coupons.
