My take on the famous ‘Kyiv Torte’ – aka, the ‘Hazelnut Meringue Cake’. This stunning dessert is made with sponge cake soaked with hazelnut liqueur, chocolate ganache filling, caramel frosting and crunchy hazelnut meringue! All those incredible layers and ingredients come together to create an unforgettable cake! This cake is the ultimate hazelnut treat!
The original ‘Kyiv Torte’ is traditionally made with meringue layers and a simple frosting. It was first created in 1956 and sold in bakery shops across the USSR. It’s still very popular today and available even in the US in Eastern European grocery stores.
