Prantl’s Bakery, Pittsburgh, PA
Date December 27, 2010
I had never heard of a burnt almond torte before I moved back to Pittsburgh. The first time I saw one of these cakes was at a party one evening. I noticed the square cake with shaved almonds on it and asked, “What’s that?”
“That’s a Burnt Almond Torte from Prantl’s, you’ve never had one?”
Why was it called a burnt almond torte? The almonds were barely toasted, but they were coated with a thick layer of sugar.
