The ultimate in chocolate treats! A flourless chocolate cake, with a rich chocolate ganache coating. If you're not after the full chocolate richness that this provides, leave off the chocolate ganache, simply sprinkle with icing sugar and serve with freshly whipped cream and berries.
I made this cake for a friend who has celiac's disease and it was a huge hit. The chocolate ganache was very good, but if I make again I will put it in the refrigerator to set. (I'm new to this so maybe that seems obvious but...) I would have also used less bitter chocolate for the topping. Otherwise a fabulous melt in your mouth cake. - 07 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made this cake for my son's (named William) birthday, and it has become a tradition in our house. I used Ghiradelli Chocolate and the quality of the finished torte was impressive, restautant qaulity. - 24 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was easy to make and really delicious. It is very, very rich which is why I gave it 4 stars...a little too rich for me with the glaze. I'm going to revise the recipe to lower the carbs by using oil, cocoa and splenda and completely eliminate the glaze though it was very good...just to reduce richness and carbs. Excellent recipe. Great for gift giving. - 25 Sep 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
