Nutty Sans Rival

small3Sans Rival is a nutty cake made of layered butter cream, meringue, and cashew nuts. If you are living in France or just happen to understand French, then I assure you this dessert’s name, which means ‘without rival’, truly lives up to its name! This recipe does have a French origin and has its roots from the layered dessert cake Dacquiose.

 

Sans Rival is a challenging recipe since it takes patience and efforts to perfect but my craving for this delicious cake always wins out and I’m back in the kitchen whipping up another one before I know it!

 

What I love most about this cake is its texture. It has a mix of soft and crunchy quality, thanks to the layers of cashew nuts, butter cream and meringue, that just makes me want to have one more bite!  Try out Sans Rival and let me know what you think.
