Keto Flourless Chocolate Torte
I’m so excited to share this Keto Flourless Chocolate Cake with you guys. Not only because it is the definition of decadent, but also because it is part of my favorite time of year, Five-Ingredient February (which means it’s also just in time for Valentine’s Day).
On my third date with Lauren, I cooked dinner for her and although she denies it, I’m pretty sure that was the exact moment she fell in love with me. I didn’t have the skills to pull off a flourless chocolate cake then, so I bought a pecan pie and took it out of the packaging and put in the oven so it appeared to be homemade. This torte is obviously homemade but it’s just as easy.
As always, just because I cook/bake in a cast iron skillet doesn’t mean you have to, a similar sized cake pan or oven-safe baking dish will work just fine. The only difference is you may end up with square servings of cake rather than slices and you may need to adjust the baking time just a smidge depending on the size of your bakeware. I know some folks are hesitant to cook certain things in cast iron because it supposedly holds onto flavors, but if your pan is well-seasoned you need not worry.
This flourless chocolate cake is perfect for any type of celebration; romantic date night, birthdays, Fridays, you name it. And if you’ve read this far I’m going to let you in on a secret - take your leftovers and smush it all together, then roll out into smaller truffle sized balls. That allowed me to fit small bites of cake into my mouth macros easier. Just divide the nutritional information of the leftovers by the number of balls and voila, quick easy bite-sized chocolatey goodness. It also worked awesome as a road trip snack since the balls were a lot more portable than a slice of cake, no fork needed.
