      Prantl's Burnt Almond Torte (copycat version) Ingredients The cake 2 ½ cups cake flour ½ tablespoon baking powder ½ teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon salt ¾ cup unsalted butter , at room temperature (1 1/2 sticks) 1 ¼ cups sugar 4 large eggs , at room temperature 1 cup buttermilk , at room temperature ½ tablespoon vanilla extract Honey Almond Brittle ½ cup granulated sugar 3 tablespoons honey 1 ½ tablespoons water 2 ounces slivered almonds , toasted (about 1/2 cup) 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 1⁄8; teaspoon baking soda Custard Cream 1 cup milk 3 large egg yolks 1⁄3; cup granulated sugar 2 tablespoons cornstarch 1 tablespoon unsalted butter ½ teaspoon vanilla extract 1⁄3; cup heavy whipping cream 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar Directions: 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 2 Grease two 8-by-2-inch round cake pans. 3 For the cake: 4 Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together into a bowl and set aside. 5 Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. 6 Reduce the speed to medium-low. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating 30 seconds between additions. 7 Add alternating increments of the flour mixture and buttermilk and vanilla, blending well after each addition; this should take about 3 to 5 minutes. 8 Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans. 9 Bake for about 30 minutes, until a cake tester comes out clean. 10 Cool in pans, on wire racks, for 10 minutes, unmold the cakes and let cool completely. 11 Note: The cake recipe makes two 8-inch round cake layers. Only one is used for this recipe. 12 To make the brittle: 13 Combine the granulated sugar, honey and water in a medium-sized saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. 14 Boil, without stirring, until the mixture turns a deep amber color, about 10 minutes. 15 Remove the pan from the heat and immediately stir in the toasted almonds, butter and baking soda. 16 Mix with a wooden spoon just until the butter melts and the foaming subsides. 17 Pour the mixture into a nonstick or lightly greased baking sheet and set aside to cool. 18 Once the brittle has hardened, break it up and crush to fine crumbs in a food processor. 19 Store in a covered container in the refrigerator until ready to use. 20 To make the custard cream: 21 In a heavy saucepan over medium- low heat, heat milk to barely simmering. 22 Meanwhile, combine egg yolks, sugar and cornstarch in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk to blend smoothly. 23 Stir the heated milk into the egg mixture; return mixture to saucepan. 24 Bring back to a boil, over medium-low heat, whisking constantly; boil 1 minute. 25 Remove pan from heat; add butter and vanilla, stirring to melt the butter. 26 Transfer custard to a bowl; place a piece of waxed paper directly on top to prevent a crust from forming and refrigerate until cold. 27 Whip the cream and confectioners' sugar until stiff peaks form. 28 Fold into the chilled custard and refrigerate until ready to use. 29 To assemble cake: 30 Cut the cake in half horizontally. 31 Place one layer on a cake plate, spread cake with cold custard cream and sprinkle with brittle crumbs. 32 Cover with the remaining layer of cake. 33 Spread the remaining custard cream over cake, applying a thinner coat to the sides, then the top. 34 Chill for at least 1 hour before garnishing. 35 To garnish, press brittle crumbs onto the sides of the cake with the palm of your hand and sprinkle a layer of crumbs on the top. Refrigerate until ready to use. 36 Note: To toast nuts, arrange in a single layer on a baking pan. Bake in a 375-degree oven until golden brown, about 7 to 10 minutes. Allow nuts to cool before using.
