Ingredients

Chocolate Torte Ingredients

  • 250 g raw almonds
  • 200 g 70% dark chocolate roughly chopped
  • 100 g coconut oil plus extra to grease
  • 50 g coconut sugar or preferred sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 5 large eggs

Coconut Ganache Ingredients

  • 100 g 70% dark chocolate roughly chopped
  • 100-130 g coconut milk

Instructions

Chocolate Torte

  • Grease and line a 22cm or 8" cake tin, I used a springform. Preheat oven to 150°C or 300°F fan forced.
  • Place almonds in mixer bowl, mill for 10-20 sec/speed 8/MC on, until almonds are a fine ground. Set aside.
  • Without cleaning the bowl, add the dark chocolate and mill for 10 sec/speed 8/MC on.
  • Scrape bowl down, ensuring to loosen the chocolate from the bottom of the bowl. Add coconut oil, coconut sugar, vanilla and salt to mixer bowl. Melt for 3 min/50°C or 120°F/speed 2/MC on.
  • Insert butterfly and set timer for 1 min/speed 2.5/MC off. Slowly add eggs one at a time.
  • Set timer for 40 sec/speed 3/MC off. Slowly add reserved almond meal to mixture.
  • Pour mixture in to prepared cake tin and place into the middle of your oven.
  • Bake for around 20 min. Carefully feel the centre of the cake to ensure it is set. Grain free baking is dependent on individual ovens. You want the torte to only *just* set in the middle so that it is still moist. Let it sit for 5 min before serving warm or chill in the fridge for a fudge consistency.

Coconut Ganache

  • Place chocolate into mixer bowl, mill for 10 sec/speed 8/MC on. Scrape bowl down.
  • Add coconut milk and cook for 3 min/50°C or 120°F/speed 3/MC off.

Notes

You can substitute the coconut oil in the torte with macadamia oil if you prefer.
The 70% dark chocolate is what makes this dairy free, if you are not concerned about dairy you can use your preferred dark chocolate.
This is not a sweet torte, you can increase the sugar by 100-200 g | 3.5-7 oz as preferred.

  1. Jaffa health by chocolate torte!! For the cake I blitzed a small whole orange, peel and all, and added it between steps 5/6 and gave a quick mix. I also reduced the coconut oil by 25g and only used 4 eggs. For the icing I added the juice of half an orange. By all reports it was (even more) AMAZING!

  2. I’ve just made this and where it says pour into cake tin. Hmm mine wasn’t really pouring consistency. Did I do something wrong? Is it mwant to be very thick & more like your need to spread into your cake tin? lol. It is very skinny as in it didnt ride at all but it looks the part just waiting for it to cool so I can top with ganache

  3. So delicious! I made this for a bake off at work and had to have a slice for breakfast as I had to go offsite for meetings all morning and didn’t want to miss out lol. The ganache was quite runny when I made it but after keeping it in the fridge overnight I had to give it a burst in the microwave. After sitting out with the torte it was the perfect consistency to dollop. Will definitely make this again. I think it would be great with some dollop cream to cut through the richness.

  4. Which 70% chocolate makes this dairy free? The ones I have in the cupboard contain milk fat or milk solids? Thanks

  5. This is disgustingly delicious and amazing. Made the thermie torte caprese last week which we adored. Was thinking this would be the same…… A much more moist piece of decadence…..love love love

  6. Wow. Just wow. Made this for hubbys birthday last week and it was a real treat…..and then someone commented that they wondered what it would be like with superfine almonds? So in the name of Science I made the almonds into almond butter, adding a little of the coconut oil to make it smoother. It’s very smooth and peanut butter textured, but definitely still delicious! Just something to try for those not keen on almond meal texture 😊

    1. How much Almond meal did you use. I have, got quit a bit of Almond meal in the cupboard and like to use it up. Thanks, Anneke

  7. Direct quote from recipient “Best birthday cake ever, can’t wait for dessert to finish it off” – this is high praise as we don’t normally communicate directly (husbands friend) and he’s not into sweets. Everyone was so impressed with the flavour and then blown away when I listed the ingredients. Might make another just for myself and hubby tonight (it’s so easy – I put it off for far too long and now I think it’ll be a staple in this house!)

  8. WOW OMG….. what a decadent delicious masterpiece this is!!! It tastes its best I believe- when refrigerated for a few hours- just wow.

  9. Dangerously good. This Torte is delicious, the entire family loves it. My husband is a huge fan of putting it in the microwave for 25 sec and a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, (he sucks because he can eat ice creams and still lose weight) . Amazing recipes thanks Nik x

  10. Rich,chocolatey goodness. Made for boxing day dinner with friends. My sugar addicted hubby was not a huge fan,so I just had to eat the leftovers over the next 3 nights.mmmmmmmmm.Thanks Nik xo

  11. This is so easy and so delicious. I made it for a mothers group catch up and it was a hit. One mum even thought it was store bought!

  12. This has been requested by my in laws on several occasions, since they tried it the first time. It’s one of two of mdy go to recipes when I’m in charge of dessert. It’s to die for (see what I did there?? haha) and when it’s dressed up with beriies and figs and the ganache – Oh my goodness, heaven!

  13. This is by far the BEST chocolate GF torte/cake I have made! It is now my “go to” dessert where everyone, regardless of dietary restrictions, can enjoy! Thanks Nik 🙂

  14. Hi there! Any chance this can be made nut free? Like with pepitas and sunflower seeds instead? My kids are all allergic to nuts. 🙁
