Flourless Chocolate Torte

Whilst in Manchester, I had the most amazing Flourless cake at Teacup Kitchen. Rich and decadent, it was great for us chocoholics without the worry of gluten. It’s definitely a time where I need that chocolate fix so tonight, I have made my own Flourless Chocolate Torte. Naturally gluten free but also low in refined sugar through the use of unrefined sugar and 85% cocoa chocolate, this is one pudding that I’m not going to feel guilty about despite the calories. It’s the weekend after all!

Ingredients

350g Dark Chocolate (85% or higher)

170g butter

100g unrefined cane sugar

6 medium eggs

Salt

Cocoa Powder

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180c.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, eggs and salt and beat with a mixer until pale and thick. This may take time-bit like meringues-but have patience, it will happen. Have your speed on medium. You should be left with a cake batter.
  3. Meanwhile, melt butter and chocolate using a bain marie (heatproof bowl over pan of simmering water). Keep stirring to ensure you don’t burn the mixture and take off the heat once all melted. Leave to cool slightly.
  4. Fold chocolate mix into batter and fold in until just combined. Then beat slightly to ensure you have a thick chocolatey mix.
  5. Pour into a 9ince Springform pan that’s been lightly greased.
  6. Bake in the oven until only a small amount of crumbs show on a knife or cocktail stick.
  7. Leave in pan until cooked.
  8. Remove from pan and sprinkle over cocoa powder.

Enjoy,
