This recipe comes from an old Bon Apetite magazine. My dear friend's boyfriend baked this torte for her birthday one year and after I had the honor of tasting it -- I told her she that she had my blessing to marry him. They have now been married for over 20 years so I guess I was right!!! I am placing this recipe here for safe keeping. This is the second time I have had to request the recipe from my friend and I promised to place it somewhere safe and secure.
