Chocolate Torte
About the dish ...

Voice-over: "For your chocolate week signature challenge, Paul and Prue would like you to make a luxurious chocolate torte made without wheat flour.


Paul Hollywood: "When we think of a chocolate torte, it's usually quite a rich cake, a bit more dense and luxurious. And that is what we want the bakers to think of. But it must not have any wheat flour in it. They could use chestnut, they can use ground almonds, whatever they wish, but it tends to make the cake quite heavy. And so the bakers have got to be really careful on the fillings. Something light. Raspberries, strawberries, fruits."


Prue Leith: "Chocolate Torte is an opportunity for the bakers to show off their piping skills, their spinning skills, their molding skills. They can show off a bit, and they should."
