The crown jewel of Bavarian baking is in our opinion the 8 layer “Prinzregententorte”.
Named after the Bavarian Prince Regent Luitpold, this cake’s eight layers pays tribute to the eight regions of Bavaria during his reign. Eight individual baked layers assembled with chocolate butter creme in between each and covered with chocolate glaze is a favorite at special occasions. We included the original recipe and also Karin’s own somewhat easier party variation, consisting of 4 layer squares, pictured below. Same great taste and same amount of delicious calories as the original, but in an easier serving size.
