  and sides of the pan.  Pre-heat the oven to 350 Degrees F.  In a
  large mixer bowl, combine the chocolate mixture, sugar, and vanilla
  and beat well. Add the egg yolks, beating well after each addition.
  Blend in the flour and water, and beat well.  Stir in the pecans.
  Clean the mixer beaters very well and in a small bowl beat the egg

  Cool 1 hour.  Cover and refrigerate until firm.  Remove the side of

  of the pan and the foil.  Pour the Chocolate Glaze over the torte
  spreading evenly on the top and sides.

  consistency is reached.
