Baking Challenge

Torte Cake

Give your dessert a clever name – and tell us about your recipe.

Raspberry Nutella Torte. I baked two layers using melted bittersweet chocolate and some Nutella. Once cooled, I assembled the cake with whipped cream, fresh raspberries and Nutella drizzled on top. It was a hit with my husband and three boys.
