Torta Caprese | Torte from Capri

This flourless decadent chocolate cake is a staple dolci, sweet, that is very popular around Naples. The story goes that a hotel baker on the island of Capri was rushing to prepare a chocolate torte for a very important guest. He was so flustered and rushed he forgot to add the flour! The results were a magnificent cake that soon became a treasured southern treat. I personally enjoy this uber chocolatey dessert with a robust structured wine, like Le Senate Cacinello.

3 Organic Eggs

1/2 cup Bittersweet Chocolate Chips

1/2 cup Sugar

1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

1 Stick of Grass-Fed Butter, cubed

Powdered Sugar to kiss the top


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter an 8-9 inch round cake pan. In a Bain Marie or a heat-proof bowl over a pot of boiling water, add the chocolate chips and butter, stir to melt evenly. Carefully remove the bowl from heat and whisk in the sugar and cocoa powder until completely incorporated. Add the eggs and mix thoroughly. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for about 25 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out with crumbles, not wet batter. Cool for 5 minutes on a cake rack. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
