When I've seen this amazing cake on RozéKacsa Blog, I knew I wanna try it. It is based on a traditional Hungarian dessert called 'Somlói galuska' which is normally served in small dessert bowls, contains three different sponge pieces, rum syrup, crème patisserie and chocolate sauce.

The blogger dreamed big and created this stunning cake for an event called 'Segít Süti 2016', where anybody can bid for the desserts of 30 famous Hungarian bloggers and the total amount of money will be used for charity and supports a foundation every year. So this cake collected the 3rd biggest amount of money during the auction, and when she shared the pictures and the story, I asked her for the recipe, and she was so kind and shared it with me.

That recipe slept for a couple of months in my recipe box, then now I inaugurated my new kitchen with the cake of my dreams.

Three different sponge layers: normal, cocoa and a walnut favoured crust, separate with crème patisserie, sugar-rum syrup, toasted walnut pieces and apricot jam (and golden raisins if you like raisins in cakes). Covered with chocolate glaze and served with rum flavoured chocolate sauce and whipped cream... OMG!!!

Update: when I've prepared it for the second time, I've added 1 tsp xanthan gum to the vanilla cream filling for a better hold and I've chilled the cake in a cake ring. This is how I've got this nice, even result!
