August Daring Bakers! Chocolate, mmm

The August 2009 Daring Bakers' challenge was hosted by Angela of A Spoonful
of Sugar and Lorraine of Not Quite Nigella. They chose the spectacular Dobos
Torte based on a recipe from Rick Rodgers' cookbook Kaffeehaus: Exquisite
Desserts from the Classic Caff├ęs of Vienna, Budapest, and Prague.

My torte is both vegan and gluten free. It is chocolate and lime flavour. I served it up with lime nougat and vegan raspberry ice cream. I used Karina's recipe for the sponge from her blog as the gluten free goddess and used substitutions for the original recipe elsewhere. Enjoy!


  1. vegan and gluten free! impressive, it looks yummy, I still haven't made mine yet, 20,000 word dissertation due on thurs and my oven just broke but I will make it eventually even though the odds are against me at the momemtn hehe

  2. Awesome job doing it both vegan and gluten free (I only did half of that). Your torte looks amazing!
