Double Decadent Brownie Torte

Based on this Recipe.

I happened upon the Creative Culinary blog (which is pretty awesome). They did a post entitled "Food Bloggers support for Sandy". She is urging bloggers to make and post a "comfort food" in support of those that have been impacted by Sandy and to imbed a Red Cross Badge (which has a quick link) so people can make donations.  This is my comfort food recipe, who doesn't love chocolate??? I urge you to make a donation to the Red Cross or organization of your choice to let help those suffering from this terrible storm. And without further ado, my vegan version of the torte.
  • 1/2 cup vegan margarine
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped

  • 1/2 cup vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons vegan margarine
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Butter and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.

In a saucepan, heat margarine and corn syrup until butter is melted.

Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips; stir until chips are completely melted.

Add sugar and applesauce; stir until well blended.  

Stir in vanilla, flour, and nuts; mix until well blended.

Pour batter into pan.

Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 30 minutes, until center springs back when touched. Cool in pan 10 minutes; turn out of pan onto a rack and cool completely.
For Glaze:.
Combine chocolate chips, butter, and corn syrup in a saucepan.

Stir over low heat until chocolate is completely melted. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Frost top of torte.

By the way, I have a new camera on order and  hope that I'll be able to get much better pics in the future. God bless everyone who contributes to those touched by Sandy.


  1. There is nothing more comforting that "double decadent" anything! This looks wonderful. What a delicious contribution to Support for Sandy. I hope your granddaughter is better soon.

  2. Karen,
    thanks for visiting my blog and for you kind comments. My heart goes out to those suffering the effects of Sandy and my contribution to the Red Cross and this blog is the least I can do. My granddaughter is actually a little better today, than yesterday so she's on the mend.
