Bavarian Torte

I might have mentioned approximately 22 a few times that we aren’t big fans of the cake family in general. Especially, the frosting that comes slathered all over the cake. Poor cake.
Chocolate Bavarian Torte is one of the lucky few to make the cut. The frosting. It’s all whip creamy and just a little sweet. Perfect.
So simple to make, it’s not even much of a recipe. Just instructions on how to fancy up an ordinary cake mix and make it purdy-like.
I feel like a baking genius every time I make it. Which is only reinforced by all the oohs, ahs, and wows. Just don’t tell them how easy it is!
Chocolate Bavarian Torte

  • 1 package (18-1/4 ounces) German chocolate cake mix
  • 1 package (8 ounces) Cream Cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped
  • 2 tablespoons grated or shaved semisweet chocolate


    • Prepare and bake cake according to package directions, using two 9-in. round baking pans. Cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.
    • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and salt until smooth. Fold in cream.
    • Using a long serrated knife, cut each cake horizontally into two layers. (You need four layers total). Place bottom layer on a serving plate; top with a fourth of the cream mixture. Sprinkle with a fourth of the chocolate. Repeat layers three times.
    • Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight. Makes 12 servings.
    Oohs and ahs. Never fails. BG
