A dense chocolatey cake, with a sweet raspberry filling, and and rich, dark chocolate ganache.
Years and years ago, I received a free sample pack of Make It Italian recipe cards in the mail. I never ordered the complete recipe card collection and most of those sample cards have long since disappeared, but one of those recipe cards has been well-loved and well-worn over the years; a recipe for a rich, delicious Chocolate Raspberry Torte.
I’ve made this torte many times over the years for guests and for our own enjoyment, with a few little adaptations. It’s always a treat; dense chocolatey cake, with a sweet raspberry filling and and rich, dark chocolate ganache. And when the time came to decide on a sweet, chocolatey treat to make for my sweeties on this Valentine’s Day, this torte came first and foremost to my mind.
So, whip out your baking supplies and whip up this sweet treat for the sweeties in your life!
P.S. I won’t tell a soul if you make it just for yourself instead! You deserve it!
