    This torte is delicious!!!!! However, it needs to be baked in a 9-inch pan that is at least 2 inches high; otherwise, it spills over the sides when it rises, and eventually breaks off and drops to the bottom of the oven. It's too good to lose any of it! Follow the directions as given in the recipe. I baked mine for 29 minutes, and removed it from the oven because the top looked very well done, even though it still jiggled in the center. It cooled to perfection! I covered it with Chantilly cream and decorated it with maraschino cherries. This one's a "keeper"!
