Flourless Chocolate Torte


  • Base:
  • 1 cup (2 stick) Butter
  • 18 oz Dark Chocolate, chopped
  • 7 Eggs
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • Ganache:
  • 8 oz Dark Chocolate, chopped
  • 18 oz Heavy Cream

YIELD: 12 slices


Melt the butter and chocolate in the microwave until completely smooth. Allow to cool.

Beat the eggs and sugar together in a mixer until light, fluffy and almost tripled in size.

Add the cooled melted butter and chocolate to the egg mixture, whisking well until fully combined. Add the vanilla and mix to combine, scraping down the sides of the bowl.

Pour the batter into a parchment lined 8" pan. Place the pan in a larger roasting pan, half filled with boiling water and bake at 325F for 20 - 30 minutes. It will not look fully baked.

Remove the base from the oven and cool completely in the pan.

Make the ganache, boil the heavy cream and pour over the chocolate. Let sit for 3 minutes, stir smooth. Pour over the base and freeze overnight before cutting.
