How to Make Spiced Chocolate Torte

  • Beat butter with powdered sugar, cinnamon and egg. Add the sifted flours.
  • Trace six 9" rounds on wax paper. Grease the paper well.
  • Divide the batter equally into six, with a knife, spread it evenly on the paper.
  • It is easier to do this if the rounds are placed on the back of a baking tray.
  • Bake 2 rounds at a time at 185 C for about 8-10 minutes.
  • As soon as the rounds come out of the oven, invert them onto a wire rack and quickly peel off the wax paper.
  • Use a sharp knife for this as the torte layers are very fragile and brittle. Cool completely.
  • Whip 2 cups cream sweetened with 2 tbsp. sugar.
  • Keep half the cream plain and add 1 tbsp sifted cocoa to the other half.
  • To assemble:
  • Place one layer of the torte on a serving dish, cover with plain cream.
  • Then place another torte layer on top, this time cover it with chocolate cream.
  • Continue till all layers and cream are used up.
  • Decorate with walnut halves.
