Can I Double the Ingredients for a Chocolate-Peanut Torte in a Small Bar Pan?

In summary, to make a chocolate-peanut torte, you will need all-purpose flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, milk, and chopped peanuts. You can use any type of nuts in place of peanuts. To make the chocolate glaze, melt chocolate chips with heavy cream and pour over the cooled torte. The torte can be made ahead of time and stored in an airtight container or frozen. To serve, the torte can be warmed, topped with various toppings, or dusted with powdered sugar.

This dessert looks awesome!!! I don't have my cookbook in front of me to check, but wanted to ask while I am thinking about it...someone else might want to know too.

This dessert is made in the small bar pan, so it is for 2 people. To adapt it for the bar pan do you think you double the ingredients? The bar pan is not quite twice as big as the small bar pan. It might actually tell us in the cookbook. I think this would be a great Death by Chocolate recipe.

Medium Bar PanI LOVE this torte. The recipe says if you double it, put it in the medium bar pan, but I've doubled the recipe and made it in the bar pan. It's a little harder to make it into a torte (cutting it in half and picking it up is difficult because it's big), but I just leave it in the bar pan and pour the glaze on top. It's easier to serve and just as tasty. :D

Hi Shawnna! That dessert does look amazing. I'm not sure about the exact measurements for doubling the recipe, but I would recommend checking the cookbook or doing some quick calculations based on the size difference between the small and bar pan. You could also try reaching out to the author or other forum users who have made the recipe for their advice. And I agree, it definitely sounds like a delicious Death by Chocolate treat! Happy baking! :)
