  • Cooking Method: Baking
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Cuisine Type: Dessert


  • 200g dark chocolate (70% cocoa)
  • 200g unsalted butter, cubed
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g ground almonds
  • Pinch of salt

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).
  2. Grease and line a 9-inch (23cm) springform pan with parchment paper.
  3. In a heatproof bowl, melt the dark chocolate and butter over simmering water. Stir until smooth. Avoid chocolate tantrums by ensuring no water splashes in!
  4. Remove from heat and mix in the sugar. Let it cool for a few minutes, unless you’d like scrambled eggs as a topping.
  5. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Think of it as chocolate cardio.
  6. Stir in the vanilla extract, ground almonds, and salt until well combined.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, smooth the top like a zen garden.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the torte has a slight jiggle in the center (like you after a night out). The sides should be set.
  9. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove the sides of the springform pan and cool completely on a wire rack.


  • Alternative Ingredients: Swap ground almonds with hazelnut flour for a nutty twist.
  • Garnishing Options: Dust with powdered sugar, cocoa powder, or top with fresh berries. Whipped cream? Yes, always whipped cream.
  • Cooking Tips: Ensure your eggs are at room temperature; cold eggs can cause the batter to seize up faster than your muscles post-gym.
