Chocolate Chip Torte

Chocolate Chip TorteMy sister Teresa is quite a baker and this recipe is her signature one.

It shows up at every family gathering and can only be cut when the entire family has assembled.

I adore the frosting on this delicious cake! So do many other family members -which is why the end pieces are always fought over! Yum! All that frosting!

This cake looks so fancy, but the directions are quite simple and straight forward. I do need to admit that this is one recipe I have yet to master.  But at least Teresa is good to share!
