Here's a recipe for Hungary Dobos Torte:


For the sponge cake layers:

  • 6 large eggs, separated
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the chocolate buttercream:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk or cream (if needed)

For the caramel topping:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Pinch of salt


1- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.

2- In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks with sugar until light and creamy. Stir in the vanilla extract.

3- In a separate bowl, sift together the flour and salt.

4- In another clean mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.

5- Gradually fold the flour mixture into the egg yolk mixture until well combined.

6- Gently fold in the beaten egg whites until no streaks remain.

7- Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top with a spatula.

8- Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

9- Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

10- While the cake is cooling, prepare the chocolate buttercream. In a mixing bowl, beat the softened butter until creamy. Gradually add the powdered sugar and cocoa powder, beating until smooth and creamy. Add the vanilla extract and milk or cream if needed to achieve a spreadable consistency.

11- Once the cake has cooled, slice it horizontally into 6 even layers.

12- Place one cake layer on a serving plate and spread a layer of chocolate buttercream on top. Repeat with the remaining layers, stacking them on top of each other and covering the top and sides of the cake with the remaining buttercream.

13- For the caramel topping, heat the granulated sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves.

14- Increase the heat to medium-high and cook without stirring until the mixture turns a deep amber color, about 5-7 minutes.

15- Remove the saucepan from the heat and carefully whisk in the heavy cream and butter until smooth. Be cautious as the mixture will bubble up.

16- Stir in a pinch of salt, then let the caramel cool for a few minutes until slightly thickened.

17- Drizzle the caramel topping over the assembled cake, allowing it to drip down the sides.

18- Refrigerate the cake for at least 1 hour before serving to allow the flavors to meld together.

19- Serve slices of Hungary Dobos Torte and enjoy the decadent layers of sponge cake, chocolate buttercream, and caramel topping!
