DIRECTIONS

  • TORTE: Preheat oven to 350°F Grease & flour three 9-inch round baking pans.
  • In large mixer bowl, stir together dry ingredients.
  • Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Beat on medium speed of electric mixer for 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water - batter will be thin. Divide batter among prepared pans.
  • Back 20 to 25 minutes, or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pans and then remove to wire rack. COOL COMPLETELY.
  • Spread filling between layers reserving 1/2 cup for garnish on top. Spread cocoa glaze over top of torte. Refrigerate. Before serving, garnish with reserved filling. Keep refrigerated after serving.
  • FILLING: In small mixer bowl, beat whipping cream and icing sugar until stiff.
  • Fold in vanilla until evenly blended.
  • If desired, fold in mint extract and red food colouring. This makes a nice touch for the Christmas season.
  • COCOA GLAZE: In small saucepan over low heat, melt butter. Add cocoa and water, stirring constantly until slightly thickened.
  • Remove from heat. Gradually add icing sugar and vanilla, beating with wire whisk until smooth.
  • Note: if you only have 2 cake pans, reserve the remaining batter in the refrigerator while the first 2 layers bake.
