Walnut Chocolate Torte

Michelle Cater


This cake is simple and easy to put together and looks lovely. I have made it for several office parties and it is always a hit. I found this recipe on taste of home but it had almonds and I like pudding in the mix of my cakes to make it moister...so I altered it to fit my tastes..
