This is delicious! I think the previous reviewer has a cake confused with a torte...This recipe never claimed to be a cake!
It would've been better if my springform pan hadn't leaked. I know now to use wax paper. I've never had a torte or made one before, so this was interesting. It was kind of like giant macaroons. I made homemade whipped cream for the first time to have with this too which was pretty good. Overall the taste was good, just very heavy on the almond/chocolate/coconut flavor. Very rich.
this was amazing, made this last weekend for family dinner and wow. As I couldn't find Ghirardelli's I just used regular semi sweet chocolate chips and they weren't mini which i like, Mini would be too chocolate. I am wondering what it would be like if I made it with just coconuts or with just almonds, hmmmm something to try
Very delicious! It is rich, dense, and moist. The coconut, almonds, and chocolate chips gave great flavor and a variety of texture. The fresh whipped cream and strawberries were outstanding too!
this is VERY good but very rich.... I would lessen the amount of Chocolate
This is to die for! Nice torte!!
I made this as written and it was totally delicious. I love that it doesn't contain flour! It actually tasted best served cold - the chocolate flavour came out more.
The texture was amazing and it was so easy! I opted for chocolate sauce until chocolate chips.
