    Recipe ingredients and directions:

    ------------------------------------CAKE------------------------------------

    9 oz Butter, salted

    9 oz Sugar

    1/8 t Vanilla extract

    4 lg Eggs, beaten

    1 2/3 c Cake flour, about

    -(sift before measuring!!)

    1/2 c Cornstarch

    1 t Baking powder

    ----------------------------------FILLING----------------------------------

    2 c Chocolate pudding

    -(extra strong)

    7 oz Butter, unsalted

    ----------------------------------FROSTING----------------------------------

    1 2/3 c Powdered 10X sugar

    1 oz Cocoa powder, bitter

    1 oz Butter (sweet), melted

    3 T Water, boiling

    -(up to 4 T)

    In an electric mixer, whip the salted butter. Add sugar, vanilla and eggs.

    Beat smooth. Mix flour with cornstarch and baking powder and sift a second

    time (you sift it once before you measured it, right?). Add flour mixture

    to egg mixture, stirring constantly.

    Make 8 layers, each less than about 1/4 inch thick, by baking each in the

    bottom of an 8-inch springform layer pan. Do this by cutting a round of

    baker's parchment that exactly fits the bottom of the layer pan, then using

    a spatula to spread the dough evenly over the parchment. Make sure that it

    doesn't get too thin at the edges. Bake each layer for 7 minutes in a

    preheated 400 degree F. oven. Stack the layers separated by waxed paper.

    MAKE THE PUDDING: Use more chocolate in the pudding than you would

    normally use. If you want to be lazy and use pudding from a mix, then add

    about a tablespoon of top-quality cocoa to the pudding mix. Stir the

    pudding while it cools so that it does not congeal. Beat the unsalted

    butter until it is very smooth. When the butter and pudding are about the

    same temperature, add the pudding to the butter to get an even, smooth

    buttercream.

    Use the pudding/butter mixture as mortar, and layer the cake together,

    spreading the pudding/butter evenly between the layers. Make sure the

    layers are even and parallel; if they are not, or if one is not straight,

    you can mend things with a little extra pudding here and there. Do not put

    pudding on top of the topmost layer, and try not to get too much on the

    outside edges.

    MAKE A CHOCOLATE FROSTING: Sift the powdered 10X sugar and cocoa together,

    add the melted butter while stirring constantly, then add boiling water.

    Frost the cake, taking pains to make sure the sides are perfectly smooth

    and the top is perfectly smooth. Let the cake sit at cool room temperature

    for at least an hour before serving.

    NOTES:

    * Austrian 8-layer chocolate cake -- I made this recipe for my boyfriend

    on his birthday and he asked me to marry him (I did). I'm not saying for

    sure that the Prinzregent Torte is why Don wanted to marry me, but I've

    always worried that it might have been. It is a magnificent recipe that

    always evokes incredulous cries of pleasure from people that I serve it to.

    The cake is a lot of work, so I only make it about once a year, but the

    people that I make it for feel very special. Yield: Serves 2-8.

    * If you are not an experienced baker, you should be warned that in

    recipes like this it is important to measure exactly and to follow the

    instructions exactly. People who prefer to cook by testing, tasting, and

    adding more ingredients should avoid intricate baking.

    * These layers are baked in the bottom of a springform pan. Such a pan

    bottom is about 8 inches in diameter, and has a raised lip that is about

    1/8 inch high. It resembles a miniature pizza pan. I have never succeeded

    in making this torte with layers bigger than about 10 inches; about 8

    inches is easier. The baker's parchment is crucial and there is no good

    substitute, though buttered kraft paper (from shopping bags) will work in a

    pinch. Use a new piece of parchment for each layer. If you don't make the

    layers straight, then when you pile them up, the cake will be mounded up in

    the middle or will sag down in the middle or will tilt to one side.

    * If you are not an experienced cake froster, then make double the recipe

    of frosting. Unskilled frosters usually use too much frosting, and you

    don't really want to run out. You can charge money to people who want to

    lick the spoon if there is any left over.
