This recipe is EXCELLENT! I work in a small fine food, wine and deli cafe/restaurant and it is one of our most popular cakes. I had a problem with it being to dry (the center was smooth and fudgey, but it got drier as it goes out). A quick stir of the batter during cooking solved it fast! I make a double recipe in a 28cm springform pan, crush chocolate biscuits ontop and serve it with cream and icecream. Great recipe.

I love chocolate! I found that mine wasn't cooked after 30 minutes so I put it in longer. The outsides burned but the middle was perfect. I guess I have to experiment with my oven. My husband loved it though.

I was a bit afraid that this would just be brownies in a round pan, but it definitely was not! It was dense and fudgy, and the glaze came out absolutely perfectly. Before chilling, I decorated the top with sliced strawberries - it looked great with little effort! Keep this chilled at all times and serve with vanilla ice cream.

AWESOME! I would rate 6 stars if there was one! I made this in a square 9 inch and served it with whipped cream AND sliced strawberries.

This dessert was quick and simple to make.Out of 4 people ,2 liked it a lot.The cake part wasn't sweet enough although the frosting was very good!!I wound up making another batch of the frosting to pour over the slices as we ate it.I will make it again,just maybe add more chocolate chips or use a sweeter chocolate chip instead of semi sweet.

I love this recipe! It was very easy to follow, though next time I'd make more glaze. We used a christmas tree shaped baking pan and covered the whole thing with strawberries for our christmas eve party. Everybody loved it! I might try using melted white chocolate or cream to decorate it as well another time... Recipe is definitely worth trying.

This torte was outstanding and very easy to prepare!!! Fresh berries must be placed on top while the icing is still "wet" or they fall off. I used fresh, dry raspberries, but any berry would work. Loved it!

I made this torte in a round springform pan, it was high while baking but once I took it out it completly shrunk, to about half the size. I was also worried because it was pretty hard on top, but once I cut it open the inside was like a big gooey uncooked brownie!! I love this recipe, but for some reason the top of my torte was pretty hard and very chewy, I will try to get rid of that next time, but it was excellent of then that!
