Prantl’s is a Pittsburgh institution, nationally famous for its burnt almond torte. Layers of light yellow cake are held together with vanilla custard, covered in snow-white buttercream and smothered in toasty sugared almonds. The nuts make the cake. Every morning, bakers toss sliced almonds with sugar, egg whites and water, then toast them until they’re golden and brittle. They press them onto all sides of each and every cake by hand. Prantl’s ships the cake to nostalgic former Pittsburghers all over the country.
