Best Chocolate Raspberry Torte
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
I think it is important to chill the cake layers first in order to slice each of them in half. I followed the proportions listed exactly, But there really was not enough filling, so I needed to run out and get more raspberry jam in order to make more. The raspberry flavor in the filling was not pronounced enough probably because I didn't add the liqueur. I just added a very thin spread of raspberry jam on the layers with the filling. The chocolate cake was very good; moist and great cocoa flavor, without being too sweet. I only us d fresh raspberries on top; I don't think it needed chocolate curls and drizzle.
This is the best.It's nice for special occasions.
The cakes did not rise at all making it impossible to cut them in two. The raspberry filling is too thin and therefore could not be used in the cake. The frosting turned out well. I am an accomplished cook with over 35 years experience. I am so disappointed in this recipe. This was supposed to be served on Xmas Day. My own fault--I should have tested the recipe first. When it comes to cakes it is best to follow the recipe from a true and tested cookbook rather than an online source.
This is beautiful and delicious!
I made it for my husband's customer's birthday and everyone LOVED it.
Truly scrumptious. I used a quart of frozen pureed raspberries blended in with the whipped cream, as well as doubled the filling. Everyone loved it. Thanks for a wonderful, elegant recipe.
How would I make this without using whip cream? It looks wonderful.
This real good special for feb 15. San valentine day 100%
I'm not a big chocolate cake fan but this one is delicious. The raspberry with the chocolate makes for a heavenly dessert!
This was delicious! I would make this again but double the raspberry filling. The picture shows nice, even layers and fillings but there wasn't enough filling in this recipe to show the layers really well when I cut into mine. My cake was a bit too crumbly as well. I will need to play around with that to fix that problem. Tasted delicious, though, and everyone loved it.
