My never fail Easy amazing chocolate torte that I make all the time.
This recipe was given to me by a dear friend who passed away many years ago but inspired me to learn how to cook!
I can’t believe I haven’t shared this recipe with all of you until, now!
This easy amazing chocolate torte recipe is perfect for Valentine’s day, anniversaries, birthdays…really anytime is perfect to make this.
It is my go to, never fail, mouth watering, delicious chocolate torte!!
How easy is it to make a chocolate torte?
Super easy! Melt chocolate chips with butter, add egg yolks to make a thick batter. To lighten the batter, whip egg whites with some sugar, fold into the chocolate batter and bake!
It really is super easy to make.
Another amazing things about this chocolate torte is, It only takes 30-35 min to bake.
Then refrigerate it for an hour or two.
Perfect to make ahead of time in the morning and serve for dessert later that night.
Bake in a springform pan
Bake in a 9″ springform pan. Here is one you can purchase on Amazon.
I have made this in an 8″ springform pan and it turns out a little thicker and just as scrumptious!
Pour 3/4 of batter into Pan and set aside the rest and refrigerate it to use after it is baked.
Refrigerate the left over batter. You will use the leftover batter to pour on top once it is baked. It is kind of like a mousse topping.
Note- yes there is raw eggs in the leftover batter but we have never ever had any problems.
The torte will rise once baked and then once you take it out it drops and cracks but it is moist inside.
Once cooled you pour reserved refrigerated raw batter (raw eggs are in this) over the top.
Remember to put it back in fridge to allow it set up a little bit.
How to serve
This my friends is what it looks like after you cut yourself a piece and top it with whipped cream.
Seriously no one can ever get enough of this easy decadent chocolate torte dessert!
