Directions: Strawberry Chocolate Torte Recipe

  • STEP 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
  • STEP 2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
  • STEP 3. In another bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract.
  • STEP 4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk. Mix until just combined.
  • STEP 5. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans and smooth the tops with a spatula.
  • STEP 6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool completely.
  • STEP 7. Meanwhile, prepare the chocolate ganache by heating the heavy cream in a saucepan until it begins to simmer. Remove from heat and pour over the chopped chocolate. Stir until smooth and let it cool to room temperature.
  • STEP 8. To assemble the torte, place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread a layer of chocolate ganache over the cake, followed by a layer of sliced strawberries. Repeat with the second cake layer.
  • STEP 9. Prepare the strawberry glaze by blending fresh strawberries and powdered sugar in a blender until smooth. Pour the glaze over the top of the torte, allowing it to drip down the sides.
  • STEP 10. Garnish with chocolate curls and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
  • STEP 11. Serve chilled and enjoy!
