Ingredients

  • PUMPKIN FILLLING(recipe follows)
  • SIMPLE COCOA GLAZE(recipe follows)
  • Sliced almonds (optional)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1/3 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided

Directions

1. Heat oven to 375°F. Line 15-1/2x10-1/2x1-inch jelly roll pan with foil; generously grease foil.

2. Beat egg yolks in large bowl on medium speed 3 minutes; gradually add 1/2 cup sugar, beating 2 additional minutes. Stir together flour, cocoa, 1/4 cup sugar, baking soda and salt; add to egg yolk mixture alternately with water, beating on low speed just until batter is smooth. Stir in vanilla; set aside.

3. Beat egg whites in medium bowl until soft peaks form; gradually add remaining 1 tablespoon sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Gradually fold beaten egg whites into chocolate mixture until well blended. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan.

4. Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until top springs back when touched lightly. Immediately loosen cake from edges of pan; invert onto clean, slightly dampened towel. Carefully peel off foil. Cool completely.

5. Meanwhile, prepare PUMPKIN FILLING. Cut cake crosswise into four equal pieces. Place one piece on serving plate; spread about 3/4 cup filling over top. Repeat layering with remaining cake and filling, ending with cake layer. Prepare and spread SIMPLE COCOA GLAZE over top; garnish with almonds, if desired. Refrigerate until serving time. Refrigerate leftover torte. 8 to 10 servings.

    This is delicious! Next time, though, I will double the filling.

    My co-workers loved the chocolate glaze. When I make this again I will make half the pumpkin filling, and twice the glaze. The pumpkin filling has a nice spicy flavor that compliments the chocolate. A lot of steps for a small cake, but it's worth the ooh's and ahh's.
