This recipe was easy to read and easy to bake.
A most tasty chocolate torte. In the past, I have used the
Ghirardelli Flourless Chocolate Torte Recipe, but misplaced
that cookbook. I needed to make a torte for a birthday.
I made a Raspberry Coulis for the plate, and served the
torte with a dollop of whipped cream, and a dusting of
bittersweet chocolate on the cream. It was beautiful!

Thank you for helping me out in a bind!
