Subject: Looking for Bake n Broil recipes

Hi Uncle Phaedrus, 

There's a great restaurant in Long Beach, CA, called Jongewaard's Bake n Broil.  
They have the best baked goods (pies, cakes, muffins, cupcakes, quiche, etc.) and 
wonderful homemade soups (the vegetable beef is my favorite).  I would love any of 
their recipes, or "taste-alike" versions. I've been unsuccessful in my search so far.  
Thanks for looking!



Hello Michelle,

Sorry, there do not appear to be any recipes or taste-likeís available for any of the products from Jongewaard's Bake n Broil. Bake n Broil has a website here: Bake n Broil

Thereís an article about them here: Lat Times Blogs
And another one here: OC Weekly

Iím looking for a recipe that is made with hazelnut, a little (1/4 cup) flour, bread crumbs. 
The cake or torte is filled with whipped cream and frosted with Mocha butter cream. I made 
this cake over 20 years ago, and I think itís called Hungarian filbert torte; but I looked 
everywhere and could not find it, can you please help???


Hello Magda,

Where did you get the recipe originally? Most nut tortes appear to call for walnuts, and most have sweetened whipped cream for a topping.

I found a Hungarian Hazelnut Torte with mocha here: Taste of Home

There is an old Hungarian Filbert Torte recipe below, and below that is a ďLog TorteĒ with a choice of nuts including filberts and a mocha filling. These are the closest recipes that I could find to your description.


Hungarian Filbert Torte ó 
One-half cup of bread crumbs, one and one-half cups of powdered sugar, 
grated rind of one lemon, juice of one-half lemon, one-half pound of 
grated filberts, eight whites of eggs beaten stiff, eight yolks. Beat 
yolks and sugar very light, add bread crumbs and the rest of the 
ingredients in order, the beaten whites last. Bake in spring form pan 
for forty or forty-five minutes or bake in two layers with fresh 
strawberries or sweetened whipped cream between and on top of cake. 
Log Torte

Blend gently. Fold in beaten egg whites. Bake in a 10 1/2 x 15 1/2 x 1 jelly roll pan in 350 degree 
oven for 12 to 15 minutes. When done, immediately roll on towel sprinkled with powdered sugar. 
Cool and fill.
