Flourless Chocolate Torte

tortIngredients

  • 2 sticks butter
  • 16 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 pint strawberries

Preparation

  1. Set oven temperature at 400 degrees.
  2. In a double boiler, melt butter and chocolate.
  3. Beat eggs with mixer until they have increased in volume by three times.
  4. Gently fold in chocolate mixture to the eggs. The batter should be frothy.
  5. Line a 6- to 8-inch round pan with parchment paper and pour in the batter. Cover with plastic wrap and then foil.
  6. Have a larger baking pan in the oven half-filled with water to create a water bath. Place the covered round pan in the water bath and bake for 40 minutes covered in a 400 degree oven. The water should cover 3/4s of the side of the cake pan.
  7. Uncover and bake for another 15 minutes.
  8. When done, torte should be firm and rather dry. Removed from oven and allow to cool. Keep refrigerated.
  9. Wash and cut the strawberries in half lengthwise. At the time of service, garnish cake with whipped cream and strawberry slices.
