Fill the dough into a round baking-form covered with baking-paper (paper that prevents sticking) sometimes called parchment paper. Bake in a preheated oven for about 60 minutes at 175 degrees C.
Let it cool.
Whip cream until stiff and put onto the cooled cake. Pour egg liqueur over it.
Decorate the torte with some cream and sprinkle it with the chocolate crumbs.
