Crispy caramel cake (Dobos Torte)
In Hungary this patisserie product is called Dobos cake, because its creator was József Dobos, chef, grocer and journalist, who never actually owned a patisserie. He created this cake which became instant success.
Ingredients
500 g plain flour
300 g margarine
2 whole eggs
200 g icing sugar
100 ml milk
½ sachet baking powder
For the cream
¾ litre milk
350 g sugar
100 g plain flour
3 tsp chocolate powder
250 g butter
1 sachet vanilla sugar
Mix the flour with the margarine until the whole lot resembles breadcrumbs, then add the icing sugar and the baking powder. Mix in the milk and the eggs and knead. Divide the mixture into 6 tiny loaves. Roll out each loaf to the size of your baking tray and bake at the bottom of the tray or on a baking sheet with no edges. Bake the cake until it has a nice pale colour. (You can also bake them on the bottom of a round spring-form). Allow the sheets to cool down and fill them with cream.
To make the cream, mix the milk, flour, chocolate and vanilla sugar and cook until the mixture is nice and thick, then let it cool. Whisk the butter with the icing sugar and gradually add the cooled thick mixture, then mix thoroughly. Cover the top of your cake too. On the top of the cake goes a caramel glaze. To make this, caramelize 150 g sugar in a pan, then pour it onto a greased plate and let it cool. Cut into as many slices as you wish, but draw the lines in the caramel topping with a knife while the caramel is still unset. Place the caramel slices on the top of the cake.
