MOCHA TORTE

This is a lovely rich dessert for any special occasion. At Christmas if you decorate it with green and red cherries it is a stunning center piece on the dessert board.

1 Sponge cake You may make this from scratch, a cake mix or buy one.

Mocha filling:

  • ½ lb. Butter
  • 2 Cups icing sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 Tsp vanilla
  • 2 Egg yolks
  • 2 Oz. Melted unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 Tbsp strong cold coffee
  • 2 Beaten egg whites

Cream butter until very soft. Gradually add icing sugar, salt & vanilla. Add egg yolks. Beat until smooth. Add melted chocolate & coffee (4 tbsp cold water mixed with 1 tbsp instant coffee may be used.) Mix well & fold into beaten egg whites. Chill before using.

Slice cake into 4 or 6 layers using a long thin knife or a thread. Fill each layer except top with mocha filling. Filling may ooze out of cake at first but when it settles it will be fine. Let stand over night in refrigerator.

Icing:

  • ½ Pint of whipping cream
  • 4 Tbsp icing cream
  • 1 Tsp vanilla
  • ½ Cup chopped cherries

To serve whip cream, sweetened with icing sugar, add vanilla. Either fold in cherries or use as garnish. Cover cake sides and top with whipped cream and chill in fridge. Until ready to serve. Slice in thin slices, as cake is rich.

Serves 16
