Lots of people want to try to incorporate gluten-free into their cooking…even just once in a while. We found a way to do it without any pain or difficulty…and just a little bit of deliciousness.

This gluten-free chocolate torte is absolutely divine. And, if you can bear to let it sit for 24 hours after baking it gets even better. And with just a sprinkle of sea salt on top to balance out the sweetness and add that je ne sais quoi to the texture it will wow everyone you serve it to.



  1. Heat oven to 350 F. Butter a 9-inch springform pan and dust with cocoa powder.
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt the coconut oil with ¼ cup of the heavy cream over medium-low heat until melted. Add the chocolate and stir until melted and smooth; remove from heat.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, and cocoa powder; whisk in the chocolate-cream mixture.
  4. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and bake until puffed and set, 35 to 40 minutes.
  5. Cool completely on a wire rack – cake will fall! Loosen cake from sides of pan and remove to serving platter. Serve with a sprinkling of sea salt, whipped cream or caramel sauce.


This is an all-season cake—great in the summer with ice cream, amazing in the fall with some peaches or caramel sauce, fabulous in the winter with a dollop of chocolate ganache or lovely and light in the spring with some early strawberries. All that and it’s gluten-free? It can’t be (but it is!).
