Low-Carb, Keto Flourless Chocolate Cake – simple to make with just 4 ingredients and minimal prep work. Sugar-free, nut-free and gluten-free. Beautiful dessert, great with a cup of coffee and perfect for celebration.
No complicated techniques, cake layering or decorations – this Keto Flourless Chocolate Torte could be served with fresh fruit on top, chocolate shavings or dusted with powdered sweetener.
I’ve made this chocolate torte many times, but this is the first time I made the low-carb, keto version.
- 12 oz dark chocolate — chopped
- 12 tbsp unsalted butter
- 5 large eggs
- 1 cup Swerve or powdered erythritol
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Melt the chocolate over a double boiler, melt the butter in a small pot, thrn combine both.
Let the mixture cool down for 5 minutes at room temperature. Beat the eggs and powdered sweetener for 2 minutes with a mixer.
Add salt and vanilla. Beating on slow speed, add in the cooled chocolate butter mixture.
Bake in a 9-inch cake pan (preferably a springform or a pan with removable bottom) at 300 F for 45-55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out wet but with a few moist crumbs on the bottom. You can bake in a water bath, but baking time will be around 90 minutes.
