Chocolate Raspberry Torte 12 servings

1 cup unsalted butter
1 pound semisweet chocolate
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon almond extract
6 eggs, separated and at room temperature

TOPPING

1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam
3 cups fresh raspberries

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly oil a 10-inch round cake pan, line bottom with parchment paper, spray oil on the parchment and dust with flour. Over low heat, melt butter with chocolate. Remove from heat. Combine sugar with cocoa and whisk into chocolate. Whisk in sour cream, extract and egg yolks.

In a separate bowl, whip egg whites to soft peaks and fold into chocolate one third at a time. Turn mixture into cake pan, set it in a large roasting pan, and pour in enough hot water to go 1 inch up sides of cake pan. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce temperature to 325 degrees and bake for an additional 40 to 50 minutes; the center will appear soft and the sides firm. Remove from oven and cool on a rack. Refrigerate cake overnight.

The next day, remove cake from pan. Invert a plate on top, then flip pan over. Peel off parchment paper. Spread raspberry jam over top, then smother with raspberries. To make clean slices, use a knife warmed in hot water, then dried with a towel; clean knife and repeat for each slice.

Oh, wow, thank you! Looks like if I just skip the dusting the parchment with flour I could make this for when we get together with our friends (one is gluten free).

I gotta say, your pic is gorgeous!

Norm, that torte is absolutely GORGEOUS! Thanks for the recipe, too, which I've not only copied but added a picture, too (and your tip for using the cocoa to dust the parchment).

The best thing is that I have everything needed to make it except the raspberries. To me and Brian, nothing goes better with chocolate than raspberries -- the best!

Thanks again. Now tell us how you enjoyed eating it!

I make the torte every Valentine's Day. I suggested making some pink cinnamon rolls this year and got vetoed.

The torte would've gotten my vote, too...
