Dark Chocolate Flourless Torte Recipe

If someone were to ask me what my weakness were, I would have no choice but to reply with “Chocolate cake”. I just love the rich sweet flavour and texture of a moist chocolate cake. Perfect on its own or done up with icing, fruit or whip cream. Truly a fave in my home! The below Chocolate torte recipe is easy to make and tastes wonderful. It is even flourless. Check it out!

Yields: 8-12 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients:

9 ounces dark chocolate (good quality & at least 65%), finely chopped

9 ounces unsalted butter (18 tablespoons)

1 ½ cups sugar

7 eggs, at room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Optional additions: ¼ teaspoon almond extract or 2-3 tablespoons of your favorite rum (or other desired alcohol)

Garnish options: fresh berries, whipped cream or a sprinkle of powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Grease a 9” spring form pan, add parchment paper, and then add a second layer of grease.
  3. Place both chocolate and butter in a microwave safe bowl, and microwave until melted. Stir until ingredients are smooth and combined. Stir in sugar, and allow the mixture to cool for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add eggs (one at a time), incorporating fully between each addition. Continue to stir after all eggs have been added until batter takes on a slightly thicker consistency.
  5. Stir in the vanilla extract (+ any additional extracts or alcohol)
  6. Pour the chocolate batter into prepared pan. Bake for 30 and begin to check for doneness (may take up to 35 minutes). The torte should have a very slight jiggle as the middle will not be quite completely set. Allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes before removing from spring form pan.
  7. Serve with desired garnishes.

Notes:

*This cake can be made up to 1 day in advance and can be served chilled or at room temperature

*To freeze: allow the cake to completely cool, cover the top with plastic wrap and place in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Allow to thaw overnight the refrigerator before serving.

*Another option for serving this cake is cutting into small squares and placing on a serving tray (perfect for parties!)

Decorate it for any occasion!
