Raspberry Chocolate Torte

Ingredients & Directions

2 tb Plus 2 tsp margarine,
3/4 c Matzo cake meal
1 1/2 oz Ground almonds, divided
8 lg Eggs
1/2 c Granulated sugar, divided
1/4 c Red raspberry jam
2 c Raspberries, divided
2 oz Semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut a sheet of wax peper into three
8-inch-diameter circles. Set 1 wax paper circle in bottom of each of three
8-inch-diameter cake pans and spread 1 teaspoon margarine evenly over wax
paper and up the sides of each pan; set aside. In small bowl combine matzo
cake meal and 1 ounce almonds; set aside. Using electric mizer, in large
mixing bowl beat egg yolks with 1/2 cup sugar until thick and lemon colored
and mixture doubles in volume, about 5 minutes. Using clean beaters, in
separate large mixing bowl beat egg whites and almond mixture until
combined (do not beat or stir). Pour 1/3 of batter into each prepared pan,
spreading batter to smooth surface. Bake until cakes are golden, 15 to 20
minutes (top should spring back when touched lightly with finger). Let
cakes cool in pans for 5 minutes; remove cakes from pans and gently peel
off wax paper. Allow cakes to cool completely on a wire rack. In small
saucepan heat jam over low heat until melted; let cool slightly. Add 1 cup
raspberries to jam and stir to coat; set aside in small saucepan chocolate
and remaining 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons margarine and cook over low
heat, stirring frequently, until chocolate is melted and mixture is
combined; set aside. Set 1 cake on serving plate and spread half of the jam
mixture over top of cake; set another cake over filling and top with
remaining jam mixture. Set remaining cake over filling and spread chocolate
mixture evenly over top of cake, letting chocolate mixture drip down the
sides. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 ounce almonds over top and garnish with
remaining cup raspberries. This makes 4 servings.
