Chocolate Raspberry Torte – 6 Points +

Chocolate Raspberry Torte

Bittersweet chocolate is perfect for this raspberry torte. Since it’s not overly sweet, it’s not too rich or overpowering. It’s also a mild chocolate, so it’s not too much for those who aren’t big chocolate fans. The cake is light and delicious and is paired with sweet and succulent fresh raspberries with raspberry jam. Even though there is a little all purpose flour, it’s easy to make this gluten free by just substituting the all purpose flour for an all purpose gluten free flour. There isn’t a lot of flour in this cake, and there isn’t any baking powder, but the beaten eggs work as a perfect leavening agent. The resulting cake is light and tender. You can also make this cake in one cake pan, if you don’t have two (or if you don’t want to wash two pans). Just slice the finished cake in half and then add the raspberry jam for filing. While you can make this without the butter in the cake, adding butter (or lard or shortening) to the chocolate when it melts helps it to melt more evenly. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler if you’re not pressed for time and have patience. Otherwise, just use a glass bowl or measuring cup in the microwave, making sure to stir frequently. This delicious cake will definitely become a household favorite with the delicious chocolate and sweet, fresh raspberries on top.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake – 6 Points +

It’s starting to be zucchini season, so it’s a perfect time to find all those delicious zucchini recipes to try. This is one of my favorites. Chocolate zucchini cake is so wonderful – it’s moist and tender. Add mini chocolate chips for a little bit of added chocolate, or you can melt the chocolate chips and use them as a frosting. Just don’t tell the kids (or anyone squeemish about green foods) that there’s zucchini in it and it’ll become the family favorite. For me, the only downside is that my husband doesn’t like chocolate, so I have to stop myself from eating the whole thing!
