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 to separate from
pan but center is still moist. Cool on rack. Remove torte from pan. Frost
with Chocolate Rum Glaze.

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.
