Cherry-Glazed Chocolate/Cream Cheese Torte

“One of my husband's co-workers brought this into work. He loved it so much he asked her for the recipe -- it's a quick and easy recipe and I've made it many times to bring to family get-togethers for those with a "sweet tooth". Cooking time does not include chilling time.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom of 9-inch springform pan. In large bowl, stir together butter, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs; using spoon, beat well.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually add to egg mixture, beating until well-blended. Spread into prepared pan.
  3. Bake 25-30 minutes or until cake is set. (Cake will be fudgey; wooden pick inserted in center will not come out clean.) Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
  4. Prepare cream layer as follows: In small mixer bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until well-blended. Fold in whipped topping and spread mixture over top of torte. Spread 1 cup cherry pie filling over cream layer; refrigerate 3 hours. With knife, loosen cake from side of pan; remove side of pan. Serve with some remaining pie filling around each slice of the torte, if desired. Cover and refrigerate leftover torte.
