Chocolate Peanut Butter Torte - Recipe here
I saw this and I had to make it. It turned out really well, and was a huge hit. It was super rich and large and serves about 16-18 people.
There are a lot of steps to this cake, but none of them are particularly hard. I messed up twice and it still turned out well.
I used my own pastry instead of the cookie one, because we never have cookies in or house that aren’t homemade. That given, I would urge you to try the one they suggested. It would work really well.
I used instant coffee instead of espresso and it was fine.
I used candies peanuts and just didn’t add the extra bit of sugar it called for in the crunch.
I would cut out the nutmeg altogether and limit the amount of cinnamon. This cake is loaded with flavour and I found the nutmeg distracting and unpleasant.
It really needs the full four hours uncovered to harden. It was still a bit runny in the middle when we cut into it after the four hours, but the next day it was perfect.
It was a great cake and I am already planning to make it again!
