Start with a pound cake mix, add a couple of indulgence ingredients, and you’ll end up with this to-die-for cake!

Ingredients

1
package Betty Crocker™ golden pound cake mix
3/4
cup water or milk
2
eggs
2
packages (4 ounces each) sweet baking chocolate
1/4
cup strong coffee
2
tablespoons cognac or brandy or 1 teaspoon brandy extract
1 1/2
cups whipping (heavy) cream

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350ºF. Grease and flour loaf pan, 9x5x3 inches.
  • 2 Beat cake mix, water and eggs in medium bowl with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds; beat on medium speed 3 minutes. Pour into pan.
  • 3 Bake 48 to 58 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to wire rack. Cool 30 minutes. Freeze cake uncovered about 1 hour 30 minutes or until firm.
  • 4 Cut cake horizontally into 6 layers. Heat chocolate and coffee over low heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted. Stir in cognac; cool.
  • 5 Beat whipping cream in chilled medium bowl with electric mixer on high speed until stiff. Fold chocolate mixture into whipped cream.
  • 6 Spread 1/2 cup whipped cream mixture between each cake layer. Frost sides and top of torte with remaining whipped cream mixture. Refrigerate at least 8 hours before serving. Store covered in refrigerator.
Tips  

Sprinkle just-frosted cake with edible gold and silver glitter for a stunning presentation.

Freezing the cake makes it easier to slice into layers. Another slicing tip: Use a serrated knife for the cleanest cut.
