Ultimate Comfort

I was pretending to be the Culinary Master (remember my incredible sister?) yesterday and today. Yesterday I used one of her recipes to make a dessert to accompany a dinner I made for a family in town that has suffered a terrible tragedy. I believe this is one of my favorite recipes from her. First, it is absolutely delicious, rich, and the ultimate comfort food. Second, it is one of the easiest gourmet desserts to make (in my naive culinary opinion). So what is this dessert? Mocha Torte.

And today I made a ganache to pour over the torte. I decided to add some almond extract to the ganache for some extra fun flavor. So, here is the Ultimate Comfort ready to be delivered.
