Soggy Chocolate Torte... Please Help!!

Can someone please help me? I have tried several recipes but everyone that I have tried to make, the water seeps into the pan and makes my torte soggy.

Can anyone please help on how to not have water seep into the pan? I would like to make this for my daughter's 2nd birthday next week. :)

Also, if anyone has a great recipe for chocolate raspberry torte, that would be great also.

Welcome to DC beccabboo2.

Are you using a springform pan? I have been told that you have to cover the outside with two layers of aluminium foil.

May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.

If you're using a springform pan, you need to wrap it with heavy duty foil, not regular foil. Regular foil is too narrow and will leave seams where the water will leak through. Heavy duty foil is wider than regular foil, and you can wrap it around the pan without any seams. Otherwise, just use a regular cake pan, not a springform, and line it with parchment. Butter the pan first, line with parchment, then butter the parchment. Dust with cocoa powder or flour - Cocoa powder is preferable when making a chocolate cake.
