Chocolate Raspberry Torte
Preparation time: 2 hours
Number of servings: 12
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
- 1 cup fat-free milk
- 1 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 large egg whites
- 1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam
- 3 pints fresh raspberries
- 1 Tbsp confectioners sugar
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 9-inch round cake pan with vegetable cooking spray. Coat bottom and sides with 2 tsp cocoa. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt and 1 cup of sugar into a large bowl.
Combine milk and remaining 1/2 cup of cocoa in a small saucepan. Whisk over medium heat for 5 minutes until mixture thickens. Remove from heat, and whisk in melted chocolate and vanilla until smooth. Whisk cocoa mixture into dry ingredients until blended.
Beat egg whites in a large mixer bowl on medium speed until foamy. Gradually beat in remaining 1/4 cup of granulated sugar. Gradually increase speed to medium-high, and beat to stiff peaks. Gently fold 1/3 of egg whites into chocolate mixture with a rubber spatula. Then, fold in remaining whites just until smooth.
Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack 15 minutes. Invert cake onto a plate; invert again onto wire rack and cool completely.
Split cake into two layers. Remove top layer; place bottom layer on serving plate. Spread jam over bottom layer; place top layer over jam, cut side down.
Garnish with 1/2 cup fresh raspberries per serving. Sift with confectioner’s sugar over top.
