Torte Di Caprisi (Italian Flourless Chocolate Cake)

IMG_1740 This is the flourless chocolate cake that I mentioned to you. It is absolutely delicious. I honestly cannot remember where in the world I stumbled upon this recipe. If it comes to me I will definitely let you know! All I know is ever since I made this for the first time I fell in love with it. Especially, since I am a big chocolate lover, and it is and was the easiest chocolate cake I’ve ever made from scratch. I am still amazed that it doesn’t have any flour??? You just have to try it.

  4. Set aside to cool for part two.

Part Two Directions
  1. Add eggs to Kitchen-aid mixing bowl.

  3. Slowly add sugar.

  4. When the egg mixture starts to thicken, slowly add the melted chocolate and mix on medium.

  5. Spray baking pans with baking spray or choice, and add a piece of parchment paper on the bottom of the pan as well.

  6. Spray parchment paper on the bottom of the pan as well. Then spray again on the parchment paper.

    Then let cool for 1hr.

  10. When finished baking let cool, then flip it over onto your cake stand or plate, dust with powdered sugar, and garnish with fresh berries of your choice.



After it cooled I dusted a little powdered sugar over it and added some red, sweet juicy strawberries and Wow!  I’ve also tried it with blueberries. And I’m positive it will taste just as divine with some sweet red rasberries. This cake is perfectly sweetened, and the texture is silky, creamy, and it just melts in your mouth. MMM Of course I had to enjoy it with a nice warm cup of coffee.  It was as though I was having dessert in a gourmet pastry shop. My husband said that it tastes so good that he can’t even describe it. Then my oldest son told Grandma and Grandpa that, “Mommy makes the best cake in the whole world”. I was flattered. LOL

I thought that was so sweet of him to say that. It made my heart happy. =)  Again if I remember where I came across this recipe, I will definitely give credit where it is due. =) My husband also told me that he wanted this to be the cake that I make for his birthday. So I didn’t have to argue with him. LOL  Needless to say this cake is obviously a big hit with our family. And has been added to our list of favorite dessert recipes in our recipe binder.

If you decide to make it please let me know how it turned out by posting a comment.
