This cake is made of sponge cake, creme anglaise, raisins soaked in rum, candied fruits and whipped cream. This cake has nothing to do with the Russians; it was invented by a Hungarian pastry chef who worked at the Orosz Kávéház [Russian Coffee House] in Budapest. That was the name of the coffee house and it had nothing to do with Russian cuisine or with Russian pastry. Indeed, Russian Cream Torte is a real Hungarian confection.
