Very easy to make and delicious. It is really rich and fudge-like and especially excellent with the fresh blackberries and the coulis.

2. Grease 9" springform pan with margarine and line bottom with parchment.

3. Melt 1 2/3 cups chocolate chips and 3/4 cup margarine in medium saucepan over low heat until smooth. Whisk in cocoa and espresso. Cool 10 minutes.

4. Using electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar in large bowl on high speed until thick, about 6 minutes. Fold in chocolate mixture. Pour into prepared tin.

5. Bake torte until dry and cracked on top and tester inserted into centre comes out with some moist batter attached, about 40 minutes.

6. Cool in pan on rack 1 hour (centre will fall).
