2 minutes, gradually adding 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla. Beat in
chocolate mixture. Fold in flour and nuts. Beat egg whites with cream
of tartar until foamy.
Gradually add remaining 1/4 cup sugar, beating until stiff peaks form.
Blend a fourth of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture; fold in
remaining egg whites. Pour into 9-inch springform pan lined with
parchment paper. Bake at 375 F for 30 to 35 min or until sides start

Chocolate Rum Glaze In heavy saucepan on low heat, melt broken
chocolate with butter, stirring constantly until smooth. Remove from
heat. Stir in corn syrup and rum. Place torte upside-down on a rack
over tray to catch excess glaze. Spread a very thin layer of glaze
over top and sides of torte to set surface. Chill 15 minutes to firm
glaze. Reheat remaining glaze to thin and pour over top and sides of
torte. When glaze is firm, remove cake from rack to large plate.
Decorate top and sides with shaved chocolate, if desired. For shiny
glaze, store cake at room temp until serving time.
