This was a very good cake, light but chocolaty, (the honey and coffee flavors are barely noticeable) I served it with a little whipped cream on the side and it was the perfect finish for a hearty dairy meal.
Mirj, this was fantastic! So simple and easy to prepare. This was the first time making a torte and tasting one, I wasn't sure what to expect, but this was devine. the whole family enjoyed it dusted with icing sugar and a dollop of double cream. Thanks for a great recipe that will be made time and time again.
Wonderfully elegant and so simple prepare. I had all the ingredients on hands which makes for the perfect dessert! My torte was done in less than the 45 minutes specified in the directions, so be careful to watch your time. I dusted the finished top with a light bit of powdered sugar, a little white chocolate shavings and chocolate shavings. I will make this one again for sure! Thanks for a beautiful chocolate fix, Mirj!
