Chocolate Torte

Global.Potpourri's picture
This chocolate torte recipe can be made with a filling and frosting of choice is desired. I often make them sans frosting or filling for a lighter dessert. Made with eggs, flour, breadcrumbs, chocolate and sugar, along with vanilla, the chocolate torte is simply baked and best served chilled.

  Sugar 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
