Shipping & Handling Included

Get your tastebuds ready for one of the most delicious desserts I've ever tried!  

This award-winning dessert features a light and airy sponge cake, flavorful vanilla pastry cream, homemade buttercream frosting, and small-batch sugared and toasted almonds. 

Prantl's is a Pittsburgh institution - and The Burnt Almond Torte is it's most legendary dessert.  

The Huffington Post calls this the Best Cake in America and says, "To say that the burnt almond torte is light and airy doesn't even begin to describe the texture of this cake. It is beyond that. This cake is so airy it tastes like the idea of a cake, one that can only be tasted in the best of dreams."

Prantl’s toasted almond torte bars

I purchased the torte for Easter. Everyone loved it! It was delicious and so different. Highly recommend it and would order again!

Prantl's toasted almond torte bars original were yummy, but a little too sweet for me. If you have a sweet tooth, you'll love.

Truly the best dessert!

Just received my 3rd order of Prantl's from Jill's shop. Prantl's almond torte bars are truly the best dessert. Highly recommend. Try them. I know you will be delighted as well.

Had my first piece of Prantl's toasted almond cake a few months ago and decided it was the best cake I have ever had. Fast forward to finding it at Just Jill Shop and I have not changed my mind! The cake bites are perfect sized pieces for individual servings. The white cake slices are fresh, moist, and packaged so well. Each piece is loaded with toasted almonds. Try these cake bites, you won't be disappointed. These are not your run of the mill cake slices. These are deliciously unique. Thanks Just Jill for offering these.

Not like the original

In the late 70s, I lived a block from Prantls Bakery in Shadyside Pa. I was so looking forward to the almond torte but was disappointed. Not the same taste, texture and balance of flavors.
