This torte is delicious for any occasion! I serve it at dinner parties, birthdays, weekend functions and sometimes just because I can! It is so versatile, and very low in fat – the only fat is whatever butter you are using – and there is only 80 grams for the entire torte! And still it remains decadent and beautiful! If you like your tortes gooey only bake for 15 minutes and let stand in its dish to cool. Gooey or baked through, if you use a beautiful dark chocolate, this is glossy, moist and just delightful!
170 g dark chocolate
80 g butter
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup plain flour
Cups of blueberries or other fruit to place on top!
Double cream or ice-cream to serve!
Heat the butter and chocolate on low heat and stir until completely melted together. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs together until thick, add the sugar and then whisk until the volume increases, about 5 minutes. Add the butter chocolate mix to the egg mix and fold together carefully, then add the flour and fold until combined. Pour the mixture into a lined or greased torte tin or ceramic quiche dish. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for about 20 minutes. Leave to cool in the dish. Serve as slices with cream, ice-cream, fruits, or anything your heart desires! Maybe I’ll serve mine with vanilla bean crème fraiche and an old fashioned Jaguar!
