Welcome back! Last month I shared my favorite Italian style Focaccia Bread recipe. How did it turn out? Please e-mail and let me know!

This month I would like to share a recipe for a flourless chocolate torte. Yes, you read that right. I bet I know what you’re thinking; a cake without flour? But how?

Well you’re about to find out! I’m going to show you how you can make your own flourless chocolate torte (Torta al Cioccolato Senza Farina).


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Wrap an 8-inch spring form pan tightly with 2 pieces of aluminum foil.

In a dish big enough to hold the pan, pour ½ cup of water in the bottom. Lay it in the oven to start warming.

Over a double boiler, melt chocolate chips and butter. Stir until melted. Once chocolate mixture is melted remove from heat and cool.

Mix eggs until doubled and pale yellow, then add sugar and vanilla. Fold egg mixture into the chocolate mixture. When combined, pour the mixture into your springform pan.

Carefully put the springform pan inside the water bath pan and bake for 30 minutes.

Remove from oven and place on cooling rack. Once it’s cool, refrigerate overnight until fully set.

Once it’s ready, cut off a slice and enjoy it with fresh fruit, chocolate ganache, or whatever else strikes your fancy!
