This decadent nougat torte has 3 layers of moist syrupy sponge cake and 3 layers of velvety roasted almond and white chocolate mousse for the ultimate satisfaction!
What can I say about this roasted almond and white chocolate mousse cake (a.k.a. nougat torte)? You actually can smell its deliciousness even before the first bite! The flavor of roasted almonds, complemented by the white chocolate and the flowery vanilla notes, really shines through, making it a very special and beloved dessert.
Texture-wise, the moist layers of the fluffy sponge provide just the right base for the velvety mousse to rest upon, and the roasted sliced almonds of the exterior give you that interesting crunch and extra bursts of almond flavor. Some cherries on top work wonders, but you can also use other fruits like peaches, strawberries, poached pears, or leave it plain….
