Raspberry Mocha Torte Recipe

I combined three of my favorite things to make this dessert...raspberries, chocolate and coffee.—Adrene Schmidt, Waldersee, Manitoba
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 1 hour Bake: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs, separated
  • 3/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • FILLING:
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup raspberry jam
  • Fresh raspberries and mint, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks and 1/2 cu sugar until thicken and lemon-colored. In a small bowl, beat the egg whites on medium speed until soft peak form. Gradually beat in remaining sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into egg yolk mixture along with the flour.
  • 2. Divide batter among three waxed paper-lined ungreased 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
  • 3. In a small saucepan, whisk the sugar, eggs, yolks and coffee granules. Add chocolate. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture reaches 160° and coats the back of a metal spoon. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Cool. In a small bowl, cream butter. Gradually beat in cooled chocolate mixture until smooth.
  • 4. To assemble, place one cake layer on a serving plate; spread with half of the mocha filling. Top with another cake layer; spread with raspberry jam. Place remaining cake on top; spread with the remaining mocha filling. Refrigerate for 3 hours. Garnish with raspberries and mint if desired. Yield: 8-10 servings.
