3 or 4 Layered Butter Cream Cake



BUTTER CREAM TORTE
We made this torte for the first Birthday party of our son, with some changes in the decorations & layering . We made a 4 layered torte for the party , with the Hazelnuts layer repeating . Also as filling strawberry jam , white butter cream then chocolate butter cream ...making chocolate butter cream is so easy..take 1/4 Th of the butter cream then mix well with 3 or 4 tbsp nutella ( chocolate cream)..fantastically delicious !!
This is my entry to Raji's Anniversary Cake Event .

Things needed :

Dough 1 :
Eggs - 2
Sugar - 125 gm
Oil - 100 ml
Orange juice - 100 ml
All purpose flour - 150 gm
Backing powder - 1/2 packet

Dough 2 :
Eggs - 2
Sugar - 125 gm
Oil - 100 ml
Orange juice - 100 ml
All purpose flour - 150 gm
Cacao powder - 5 tbsp
Backing powder - 1/2 packet

Dough 3 :
Eggs - 2
Sugar - 125 gm
Oil - 100 ml
Milk - 100 ml
Hazelnuts - 100 gm (ground)
All purpose flour - 150 gm
Backing powder - 1/2 packet

For creaming :
Butter - 500 gm (soft)
Powder sugar - 200 gm
Vanilla pudding powder - 2 packet
Milk - 1 litre (to make the vanilla pudding)
Strawberry Jam - 6 tbsp ( should be soft , blend to avoid lumps if any)

For decoration : You can bring up your own ideas.I used myself chopped Hasselnuts & 2 packs chocolate waffle rolls and a white glazing .

Preparation method :
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
For preparing dough 1, beat egg well adding sugar until thick cream.
Mix in Oil and Juice .
Mix flour & backing powder separately in a bowl.Add this to the mixture using a sieve in 2 batches. Mix using a spatula.
Pour this into a greased spring form , 29 cm. Bake for 15 - 20 min. or until it is done .
Please note different oven takes different times, my oven is very hot n bakes things fast.

Make the dough 2 the similar way . Only new thing to add is the cacao powder . Bake it & set aside.

Next for dough 3 , Grind 100 gm hazel nuts in the grinder. Use a sieve to avoid chunks .
Repeat the same procedure like before . Add hazelnuts then flour n baking powder.Bake it & set aside.

Now for making the butter cream for the butter cream torte , prepare the vanilla pudding according to the instructions written on the package . For this you require 1 litre milk .
Set it aside to cool down completely.

Beat the butter with powder sugar. Add the pudding to this spoon by spoon and beat.
The cream should be creamy and thick.

Next in the 3 baked layers, cut & remove any projected portions to make it flat using a long sharp knife.



Apply Strawberry jam uniformly over the dough 1 . Place the dough 3 ( with hazelnuts) over it.
Apply 1/4 th of the butter cream over dough 3. Now place dough 2 over this.

Fill a pastry bag with the butter cream and make flowers or decorations like you wanted. Be creative !
I myself used a white chocolate glaze over it , so that I can write something down there. Then decorated the sides with butter cream and Hazelnuts.
