Chocolate torte

This Chocolate Torte recipe is such a rich and satisfying recipe that is seriously chocolatey and the middle is a little sunken, moist and just incredibly delicious. You will love this recipe, excellent to have around over the weekends.

What you need

250g plain chocolate broken into pieces

125g butter

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

6 eggs seperated

125g light brown sugar

250ml plain yoghurt

The process

Grease and line a 23cm spring form baking tin with greaseproof paper and lightly grease the paper as well, then heat the oven to 160 celsius.

In a pot over a low heat melt the chocolate and the butter and stir in the vanilla essence, set aside.

Whisk the egg yolks with 100g of the sugar, then fold in the chocolate mixture.

In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites to soft peaks then gradually whisk in the remaining sugar, now fold in the yogurt. Gradually add to the chocolate mixture and fold in the egg white mixture.

Place the mixture into the tin and bake for 30 minutes at 160 celsius or until springy.

Remove from the oven and let it cool for about 10 minutes before eating. The center will sink slightly and leave a rich gooey chocolate center.

You can serve this hot as a dessert with a little flavoured cream, a teatime choclate cake or as an anytime chocolate snack.

    Can you advise whether I could add processed (blendered) chickpeas to this recipe instead of yoghurt. I am trying to make it lactose free.

      Hi Jaye, I imagine as long as the consistency is similar to that of yoghurt it would be fine, from a taste perspective, not sure. You may find there is a soy yoghurt that is available…

    Sorry about that, you fold it in after mixing the sugar and egg whites. I amended the recipe. G
