At the Chocolate Claim in Whitehorse, owner José Janssen and pastry chef Karon Danks use the finest European chocolate in their cakes, muffins, handmade chocolates and other treats. If this torte, tangy with cranberries and topped with a dark chocolate glaze, is any indication, a trip to the Yukon may be in order to indulge at their shop.
If you do not have enough time to defrost frozen cranberries, you can add them, still frozen, to batter. You will then have to increase baking time to up to 1 hour to 1 hour and 5 minutes. We found that orange peel gave a more pronounced orange taste than orange liqueur. However, we liked both versions.
