Chocolate- dark chopped 2lb
Brandy -Cherry 4oz* you can omit or change to any other alcohol
Egg Whites 16
Melt the butter and sugar together ensuring not to boil but dissolving the sugar crystals fully
Once hot pour over chopped chocolate and stir. Add Brandy
Add Egg whites once mixture is cooled
Place in a spring form pan (use plastic wrap to line pan as it may leak) and place in a water bath
Bake for 1hr at 350 degrees.
*Torte is finished when you see little movement in the centre of the torte. This Torte will shrink once cooled and the texture will be like fudge like. I personally make some ganache which is 3 parts chopped chocolate to one part warm cream(heat cream and pour onto chocolate stirring as little as possible to melt the chocolate). Pour the ganache over to decorate the torte and give it a clean finish!
Brandy is nectar for the gawds CJ, and is why it is my elixir of choice. My fav has always been Cognac but I gormandize on Gingered Brandy(if not for Ness). Either would be my choice to souse up that torte of yours.
