It took me one year to come up with the formula for the perfect Hungarian Dobos Torte. I started the whole process last year, but I didn't want to be careless and just show you any recipe. I wanted the tested, verified and most successful one. My little Maria is the biggest fan of this Dobos Torte, unexpectedly, even for me, because she's not a big fan of sweets and desserts.
I highly recommend the cake. It's wonderful, with intense chocolate taste, soft pastry and crunchy caramel. It may not be perfect from the first time, but you will definitely repeat it, because the taste is addictive. The final part, with the caramel, is the biggest challenge of the Dobos cake, but you can omit and decorate the cake with fruit or leave it simple, just with chocolate.
Another interesting and faster option, not the classic one, for assembling and decorating the Dobos cake can be found at the end of this recipe. I think I will prepare it only this way from now. If we feel like caramel too, I'll just pour it on a baking sheet and after it hardens, I'll put it on top of the cake.
By the way, although it looks small, I recommend cutting into small portions. It's got a very complete, intense and filling taste. My Maria has no limit but other guests too have asked for double portions, this is how tasty it is.
