The original recipe for this was a little too basic, so I added my own special touches and it's one of the most decadent chocolate tortes I've ever had! Very good the first day of course, but REALLY good the second day! *If making for company, i highly suggest making it one day in advance. The texture becomes more dense the second day. Hope that helps! Hope you enjoy this as much as we did! It's really wonderful!!

How to Make Decadent Chocolate Torte

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter and flour a 10" springform pan. Melt butter and both chocolate chips in heatproof bowl in microwave until melted and smooth, stirring occasionally. Do not get too hot and scorch chocolate. Beat eggs and sugar in large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in liqueur. Combine cocoa powder, cinnamon, flour and espresso powder; add dry ingredients to egg mixture on lowest mixer speed. Slowly add the melted chocolate mixture to the other ingredients, still at lowest mixture speed (taking care not to curdle eggs).

When ready to serve, dust the top with sifted powdered sugar and garnish with fresh raspberries and strawberries. This is even better the next day!! Enjoy!!
