Sounds wonderful!!!! What does ribbony eggs means?
just one correction I would like to make, "Dobos" comes from the last name of the creator of this cake " Jozsef Dobos" a master pastry chef. He made this cake first in 1885 and the recipe became public in 1895.
Thank you for this recipe! Now I can impress my Hungarian in-laws =)
mosolyka, you are 100% correct.
anamado, ribbony is the eggs mixed together, a pale yellow color, thick, and when the mixer head is lifted, it streams back into the bowl in a thick ribbony flow. not sure if that makes sense, but that is about the easiest way to explain it.
Wow, my recipe is alot different. I got mine from my Hungarian mother-in-law.
I remember this cake!! My mother made this cake when we were little. I remember the hard topping-warning! It turns into hard candy!!! We had a difficult time cutting it so after trying, mom took the hammer out and cracked it!! It was very yummie!! I remember my mother taking a long time in the kitchen with this cake but it was so worth it! Thank you for posting!!
Great Recipe, I made it for my Father who is from Hungarian and as soon as he saw it his eyes lit up and he said "ohhh...Dobos Torte". It turned out excellent and rivaled my mothers recipe, in fact, I was able to give her some tips! Thank you
It is lovely to see this recipe outlined so well. My parents are hungarian and I remember visiting a cukrazda and tasting this cake there. The hungarians are masters of great tasting gateaux but their decorating is still behind. I have been told that this is due to the problems with getting hold of tools and the sugar/flower pastes we have available in western countries.
