The “Burnt Almond Torte,” a unique and mouth watering dessert, was conceived by Henry Prantl after a trip to California. There was an almond surplus the year he went, and the Almond Board of California was trying to get bakers to use almonds in new and inspiring ways. Henry experimented with a few ideas and created the recipe for the famous torte.
Henry Prantl’s Burnt Almond Torte has been named the Best Cake in America by the Huffington Post, the “Best of Weddings Cakes” by the Knot in 2018, and the “Best Cake In Pennsylvania” by the Food Network in 2018 and continues to be a Pittsburgh tradition today.
