Hazelnut Chocolate Torte With Espresso Ganache
This super moist cake is full of ground toasted hazelnuts and swathed in a glossy dark espresso ganache. Panko crumbs and beaten egg whites keep the crumb from being dense.
Notes: When checking with a toothpick to see if the cake is done, look for no batter on the toothpick. This is a moist cake, so the toothpick may look wet, which is okay.
