Chocolate Raspberry Torte is a decadent, fudgy dessert, topped with raspberry glaze, fresh raspberries and powdered sugar! It tastes amazing!
Preheat oven to 325°F. Cover bottom of pan(s) with parchment paper cut to fit; grease or spray bottom of pan. Set pan aside. TIP: Wrap a strip of aluminum foil tightly around bottom edges of pan to help prevent batter from leaking out of pan.
In medium saucepan, combine chocolate, butter, and milk. Cook and stir on LOW heat until chocolate has melted. Once chocolate has melted and is very smooth, remove pan from heat; let cool off heat for 20 minutes.
While chocolate cools, place eggs and vanilla extract in separate large mixing bowl. Beat with electric mixer on LOW speed, only until combined. Add sugar and flour to eggs. Beat with electric mixer on HIGH speed for a full 10 minutes. Pour cooled chocolate into the egg mixture slowly, stirring as it's added.
Pour batter into prepared pan(s). Bake on middle rack for 30-35 minutes (mini pans about 25-30). It's done when the outer 1/3 of the top is lightly puffed. The center will still LOOK under-baked, but will firm up as it cools. Because it is so dense, the traditional way of testing doneness with a toothpick in the middle will NOT work. Let torte cool on wire rack for 20 minutes. Use a knife to go around edges to loosen torte from sides of the pan. Once completely cooled, remove sides of pan. Carefully wrap torte in aluminum foil; refrigerate 8 hours or overnight (up to 2 days).
To serve torte, unwrap it. Place onto serving platter and let it come to room temperature. Melt seedless raspberry jam in small pan on low heat; remove pan from heat; let jam cool. Once cooled, spread it over top of torte. Cover jam with fresh raspberries, adding them to torte stem side DOWN. Lightly "dust" the top of the torte with sifted powdered sugar. Cut the torte in 16 thin slices, serve and enjoy!
NOTES: Can substitute all 14 oz. of semi-sweet chocolate (and no bittersweet) OR can substitute 14 oz. of bittersweet (and no semi-sweet). I prefer the combo of both but it will be fine using only one type of chocolate if that is what you have access to.
