Flourless Chocolate Torte! Amazing!

A few years ago I came across a recipe in a Publix holiday magazine that sounded amazing!  The magazine was called Publix Family Baking and the issue was Fall 2005.  While I was not on a GF diet then, I had a similar type cake at a restaurant here in Florida called Toojays.  This recipe is very similar to Toojay's Killer Cake only with no gluten! 

I tried to look up the recipe online and never found it so I am going to post it here for all the chocolate lovers out there!  YES it's a lot of eggs, butter and cream but go ahead, try it!  Amazing!!

Flourless Chocolate Torte

1 pound semisweet chocolate (Ghirardelli semi sweet or dark chips work well)
1 pound butter (yes folks, four sticks!)
1 cup whipping cream
1 cup sugar
9 eggs
4 teaspoons vanilla


1 cup whipping cream
12 oz dark chocolate (also Ghirardelli)

Grease bottom and sides of a 10-inch spring form pan. In a heavy saucepan combine the 1 pound chocolate, butter, 1 cup whipping cream and sugar.  Cook and stir over medium high heat until melted.  Remove from heat.

In a large bowl whisk eggs and vanilla together.  Slowly stir half of the chocolate mixture into the eggs mixture.  Return all of the egg mixture into the chocolate mixture stirring until combined.  Pour batter into the prepared pan and place pan on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes or until evenly puffed and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.  Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.  Chill several HOURS .  Set torte on a serving plate , remove sides of pan.

In a small saucepan heat the 1 cup whipping cream just to boiling.  Pour over the 12 ounces of chocolate. Stir until melted.  Cool to room temperature.  Pour over the top of the torte.

This makes an AMAZING chocolate dessert!!  It has become legendary at our house!


  1. OH. MY. GOD.

    I just had a foodgasm THINKING of it.

  2. I will be trying this.

    If only for the fact that I have five dozen eggs in the fridge, and am so tired of omlets I can't even speak of it.

  3. Wow, YUMMY to my tummy! Seriously, how do you come up with all these recipes. May I steal some to put on my Thursday Recipe Corner?
