This is a Ukrainian torte. Five tasty layers of a sweet ground almond cake, pressed together with a cinnamon prune filling. The trick is to let is set for 24 hours before slicing.
MMMMMMM! My cousin's paternal grandmother was Ukrainian and used to make a similar recipe and as children we would devour it minutes (though we didn't know it was prunes until we were older) . I could never find a recipe just like she made - until this one came along. The hardest part is the waiting for it to stand - don't rush it as that process is what makes it so good. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe. - 26 Aug 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is a great recipe! It's really worth the 24 hour wait. I followed the recipe exactly and got perfect results, everybody loved it! - 02 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
A new favorite recipe! We have made it twice, following the recipe exactly & it's a delightful dessert. Perfect with coffee; the flavors are rich but not heavy. - 23 May 2017 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
