My dad grew up in Poland this year we are throwing him a big 60th birthday party. The number one thing he wants is a cake like his favorite cake he had growing up in Poland. He has tried to explain it and we have researched it but can't seem to find a recipe, name, info,etc on this Polish (or Eastern European?) cake. We frequent a Polish Deli and the lady who owns it knew exactly what my dad was talking about but didn't have a recipe herself. It is described by him as follows:
- thin layers of cake (a yellow type cake...not super sweet)
- fruit preserves/jam spread between the layers
- topped with a very light whipped type topping
It is not a super sweet dessert which is why he likes it... the only words in English he can think to compare it to is a torte.. like a fruit torte... any ideas??? We would LOVE to be able to make him what he wants!
