chose our TWD-recipe for today: the 15 Minute Magic – Chocolate Amaretti Torte. This torte was easy to assemble: it only took 15 minutes to make the torte and get it in the oven. I wanted to make half the recipe and thus create two four-inch tortes instead of one big torte. However I made one mistake: I forgot tho halve the recipe…. Hahahah! I found this out after I filled the two torte-pans and had some batter leftover. I filled a muffintin with this and ended up with 6 muffin-size tortes too!
The four-inch torte, pre-glazing
After topping the tortes, big and small, with the glazing and popping them into the fridge I started making the optional almond cream. I whisked the cream untill I had soft peaks and then proceeded to add the confectioners sugar and the almond essence to the cream. When I started to mix the almond essence with the cream, disaster struck: the cream curdled…. 😦
So I served the torte with a crumbled amaretti on top.
The muffin-size torte
The torte tasted good, but to me it wasn’t the best of Dorie’s recipe…. The outside of the torte was dry (pre-glazing ofcourse), but the inside was still nice and moist.
In total I had 14 portions, which would be 5,5 WW Points per portion.
