This recipe comes from Elizabeth of Ugg Smell Food. I was immediately stoked about this choice. I knew we were heading out of town for my birthday. My Pop-Pop lives for salted peanuts, peanut butter and chocolate. This would be totally up his alley. The thing that I didn’t count on was running such a busy schedule while away, I would run out of time to make it.
My brother was supposed to make a birthday cake this year. He did not. He totally bailed and I went cakeless. Cue the violins here please….You will pay Doug, you will pay… So at home today, on my birthday, I made the torte. I accidentally left my 9 inch springform at my Grams, so I used the 8. I wish I had used the 10 instead. It came out mighty thick. Its a rich pie, so less may have been more. I cut it into quarters and gave it out to the neighbors, leaving 2 smaller pieces for us. I am yet to really taste it. I am too stuffed from dinner. But, Jaos says it is great. The only comment he made was that it needed to be colder. So, maybe I need to adjust the fridge temp. This torte came together easily, it tasted delish so its a keeper in my book. Thinking about making it for our big family reunion in July. The 10 inch would feed quite a few.
You can snag the recipe from Elizabeth since this was her choice. Thanks again Elizabeth!! Next week… Florida Pie…
