Living the Keto lifestyle here, just trying to be able to fit into my clothes, LOL. Found a recipe in The Cake Bible for a Flourless Chocolate Torte. It was a good start for those who are gluten free and going keto, but I decided to go one better and make it Super Keto friendly, and managed to remove almost all carbs, by substituting in sugar-free chocolate chips and Swerve. It turned out really well!
Since I am the cake decorator extraordinaire, I put some gumpaste roses on top to pretty it up for Thanksgiving.
It’s super easy! Just remember to take it out of the oven on time!
Flourless Sugar-Free Chocolate Torte
One bag sugar free chocolate chips (10 oz)
1/2 cup powdered cocoa
3/4 cup Lakantos Monk Fruit
One stick margarine or butter (with salt)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Melt the butter in the microwave (30 secs. on high).
Add the chocolate chips and stir until completely incorporated with the butter. If needed, zap it another 20 seconds or so, and stir until very very smooth.
Mix up the eggs, Lakanto Monk Fruit and powdered cocoa, add in the chocolate-chip/butter mixture, and then stir in the vanilla. Pour into a well greased 9” round cake pan. (I like to make mine in a spring-form pan for easy release.)
Bake 25 minutes at 350° – remove and let cool.
3/4 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
One 10oz. bag sugar-free chocolate-chips
Heat in microwave one minute on high, and then gently stir well, until you have a lovely smooth syrup. Pour over the cooled Torte and serve!
You probably have about 8-10 carbs per slice, assuming you can eat 1/8th of this very rich Torte!
