Dunno if there is such a thing in blog-land as a Saturday Salute, but it sounded good to me. At any rate I wanted to give credit where credit is due.
When I left my job with MCSO in Portland they made me a cookbook of sorts. Everyone submitted a recipe, or several recipes, and they colated them into a binder.
I have been working my way through them over the past few years (sorry it is taking so long) and finally have come to one I've wanted to try, but hadn't: Roger's Chocolate Torte Cake. I am sure this is not how it is supposed to look, but I get creative with my interpretations of recipes. Ha. It is laughably easy, though at first to me it sounded hard, and it's really good.
I made one in early Dec to take to our annual church potluck. It looked just as good as this one. The funny thing is that I forgot to put the whipped topping into the filling. Husband says: "Well, I guess we are going with an empty plate then." I said: "Nonsense, they won't know the difference." And I guess they didn't; I took it and CAME HOME with an empty plate.
So here's to Roger and his chocolate cake recipe. Thank you!
