Chocaholic Torte

Chocaholic Torte created by Wildflour

I'm not sure about the origin of the recipe; my best friend asked me to make this for her birthday and dear heavens, was it amazing! Bake time for my convection oven was 40 minutes, but check after the first twenty-five. Nice, crisp crust and moist inside...the chocolate, coffee and cinnamon blend exquisitely.

  • Slowly add melted chocolate mixture to other ingredients, still at lowest mixture speed (take care not to curdle eggs).
  • Pour batter into springform pan and bake for 25-45 minutes; check cake with toothpick every five minutes after 25 minutes.
  • Cool in pan on rack.
  • When ready to serve, dust the top with sifted powdered sugar and sprinkle with fresh raspberries.

    Frosting? What's a good recipe for the chocolate dabs and the frosting ring around the bottom?

    Can this be made gluten free? Thank you!

    I turned it upside down on the plate to give the top a nice smooth finish..the bottom held on to the crunch,it just looked prettier..I will also use a much better chocolate next time. The chips were too sweet.

    Turned out well. Quite luscious . I will use a better grade of chocolate next time, not chips , at least 75% Cacao ..it was a little too sweet and deserves a really good chocolate. I like a genache on top, very thin, but just to glaze.

    Oh my, this is wonderful. I had a small piece a couple of hours after Easter dinner. Had it with strawberries and it is so good. Would also be good with a strawberry puree. I did have to cook mine for the full 45 min.
