For real chocoholics, this dark, decadent, flourless cake is a dream come true. The recipe is especially easy, too -- unlike most flourless cakes, the batter for this one is lightened with whipped cream instead of whipped egg whites.

Cook's Notes

Baking this torte in a hot-water bath helps set the cake so it doesn't crack. Pick a top-notch variety of chocolate to achieve an intense cocoa flavor, and add rum for a delicious depth (or use your favorite liqueur).

    One of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE recipes that I make over and over again! Definitely for dark chocolate lovers. I use Ghiradelli Semisweet chocolate chips and sometimes leave the Rum out (although I have added Kaluha to it for substitute). This has a very deep and rich flavor so choose your chocolate well. If you love the chocolate by itself, you will definitely love it in this recipe. I'd like to use my favorite Belgium chocolate next time I make this which will be very soon.

    farahazwati, does that include extracts (extracts are made from alcohol)? Rum extract would be a good alternative.

    I uses one pound of semisweet chocolate and 4 tablespoons of sugar but it still produced the densest chocolate taste ever. Rum definitely is too much too. Well, it was so strong chocolate flavor that nobody around here could eat the tart without a double dose of whipped cream to soften the dense chocolate taste. I don't recommend it, specially for families. It is an adult chocolate taste with an excessive bitter chocolate flavor.
