Dobos Torte

Dobos torte or Dobosh is a Hungarian sponge cake layered with chocolate buttercream and topped with caramel. The five-layer pastry is named after its inventor, Hungarian confectioner József C. Dobos, who aimed to create a cake that would last longer than other pastries in an age when cooling techniques were limited. The round sides of the cake are coated with ground hazelnuts, chestnuts, walnuts or almonds, and the caramel topping helps keep it from drying out. The name is also sometimes spelled Dobos-torta or Dobostorta.
