When I was young my grandmother would make a hazelnut torte with mocha buttercream frosting. She would grind up the hazelnuts in her coffee grinder and it was our cake for every birthday. My mom and I loved the mocha buttercream so much that grandma would hollow out the cake and put a ton of buttercream frosting inside. It was so good.

This low carb chocolate torte is different from traditional cakes. Do you know the difference between a cake and a torte? I didn’t, I had to look it up. A torte is traditionally made with ground nuts or breadcrumbs. In this recipe, there is no rising agent, so it isn’t as light as a traditional cake. But it is rich, moist and chocolaty. I did find that it wasn’t as sweet as I prefer a chocolate dessert, so in the future I will add more sweetener to the recipe. That being said, the frosting was plenty sweet!
