This Ukrainian Walnut Sheetcake makes a perfect after dinner dessert, since it is light, and not very sweet. This recipe was shared by a parishioner from Sacred Heart Ukrainian Catholic Church, in Johnson City, NY. She often made this cake for a church bazaar,
This chocolate cake consists of 4 layers of cake, with chocolate ganache, creamy salted caramel, and toasted almonds. If this doesn’t make your mouth water, I don’t know what will!

I was searching for a torte recipe for a special occasion. One that would be different from any other tortes I made before, yet not too difficult to prepare. I selected a recipe for Irene’s Torte (I modified it slightly to conform to my taste), from a Ukrainian Traditional Cookery, by Savella Stechishin. I find lots of great recipes in her cook book.
