Mocha Mousse Torte (flourless)

Since going gluten free nearly 2 1/2 months ago, I have enjoyed finding recipes that are naturally gluten free. Not things that need rice flour, xanthan gum, or unflavoured gelatin. It is easy to find main dish recipes that are gluten free, because after all, your raw veggies and unprocessed meat from the local butcher will be naturally gluten free. This, however, is another recipe that anyone can make, not just those that regularly do GF baking.

This moist, smooth, rich chocolate dessert was a hit the day I served it. It actually had the taste & texture of a baked chocolate cheesecake. I topped this restaurant quality dessert with some sweetened pureed strawberries & whipped cream. The addition of the espresso was what set this cake apart from the regular flourless chocolate cake recipe.

The next time you need a dessert that is something a little special, please give this cake a try. You won’t regret it! And if you know someone that is gluten intolerant, why not surprise them with this delicious, melt-in-your-mouth gluten free dessert. It is perfect for everyone; you would never guess that it is gluten free!

    OMG! That looks amazing. I want it! I want it! If I had any self control I’d make it right now, but I know I’ll end up eating it all. I am going to save this recipe for a special occasion.

    Did I wait for the torte to cool? No, we popped the Spring form pan off immediately. Waited 20 min, and served. Wow, buttery custard wow with thin sugar crust and soft bite. Thx u

      Haha, Linda, sometimes waiting for things to cool is the hardest thing! So glad that the cake still worked beautifully for you! :)
