The taste of this cake was very rich and delicious, however....I made it three times and every time it fell dramatically (talking pancake here) so be careful when removing from oven...I think it may be helpful to open oven door when done cooking and cool in the oven.
This was a wonderful, rich, chocolate, fudge-like torte. It is not huge, but it is very rich. Every time I have made it people ask for the recipe. I also take dried apricots and poach them for about 20 min. in about 1/2 cup sugar and 1 cup water with a few TBS of orange liquor. I then melt a little white chocolate and dip the poached apricots in it and place them on top of the torte so that each slice gets one. It just makes it that much more decadent. Also, if you have a spring-form pan that would be the pan I would suggest as it makes it easier to get out.
A rasberry syrup makes an excellent compliment.
excellent fancy dessert - I have iced it with a deep chocolate too - wonderul
