Flourless Chocolate Torte with Spring Edible Flowers

A chocolate torte so easy that all you do is combine the ingredients in one bowl and bake. This is my kind of recipe!


The back story

I had this delicious flourless chocolate torte a while back when we had hosted a Father’s Day Brunch and our friends Tracy and Carl had brought a decadent flourless chocolate cake.  It was so good that everyone devoured it!


I’d been meaning to ask them for that recipe but just forgot until a couple of weeks ago when we met for dinner at their place and finally got the recipe!

About the recipe

The recipe is from Goldenbarrel.com and though they call it a flourless chocolate cake I think it looks more like a chocolate torte.  It’s dense and moist, creamy and delicious. 


The creamy texture comes from the coconut oil and honey instead of the traditional butter and sugar making this not only a flourless chocolate torte but dairy free too.


The best part of this recipe is all you do is combine the ingredients and bake. How easy is that? For an easy to make chocolate torte that is decadent and delicious give this outstanding recipe a try!


Flourless Chocolate Torte
recipe from goldenbarrel.com


  • 4 oz. unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/2 cup Golden Barrel Coconut Oil
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp espresso powder (optional but recommended)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Cook’s Notes: The one tip that I found very helpful is to use a whisk when mixing as it assures that everything is well blended and smooth.

  • Preheat oven to 350° and line a round cake pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine chocolate and Coconut Oil. Microwave until completely melted, about 1 minute and 15 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds.
  • Whisk in the honey, and then add the eggs one at a time.
  • Add the cocoa powder, espresso powder, and salt. Whisk until fully combined and no lumps remain.
  • Pour into prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes.
  • Cool for 30 minutes before removing from pan.  The cake will flatten when it is cooled.
  • Dust with powdered sugar and serve with whipped cream and fruit.

Flourless Chocolate Torte with Cardamom

For a different variation on this chocolate torte I also made one with 1 tsp cardamom powder for an exotic twist.  It tasted outstanding!!


Decorate with edible flowers for a stunning presentation!

Decorating the torte with edible flowers transforms the torte into something gorgeous 🌺🌼☘🌿! 


For my torte I used spring flowering yellow and orange nasturtium blossoms, blue pansy blossoms, and rose geranium leaves and it’s pale lavender flower.

About edible flowers.

Using edible flowers in cakes and salads is an age old tradition that dates back centuries that became popular with the recent revival of organic gardening and holistic natural healing remedies.


You may be surprised to learn that the list of edible flowers is huge with over hundred herbs and flowers that are edible. Just make sure to do your research before you head out into your garden and use flowers and herbs in your cooking.

Most of my edibles are roses, nasturtiums, pansies, and marigolds. I also like to use the flowers that form on vegetables and herb plants.


Here are a few more recipes that use edible flowers as decoration in desserts and cakes.
