Instructions Checklist
  • Combine chocolate chips and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl on the Defrost setting for 1 minute. Stir and continue heating in microwave until completely melted, 1 to 2 minutes more.

  • Fill a 12-inch baking pan with 1 inch of water and place water bath in the oven. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch springform pan and line with buttered parchment paper. Wrap the outside of springform pan with aluminum foil.

  • Set a large bowl over a pot of simmering water over medium-low heat; cook and stir eggs in the large bowl just until warm to the touch. Remove from heat and beat using an electric mixer until triple the volume and soft peaks form, about 5 minutes.

  • Fold 1/2 of the eggs into chocolate mixture using a rubber spatula until almost incorporated. Fold in the remaining eggs just until blended. Pour mixture into the prepared springform pan. Place springform pan in the water bath in the oven.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes. Cover pan loosely with aluminum foil and bake 10 minutes more. Cool on a wire rack for 45 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate, 3 hours to overnight.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

YUMMY! Very rich so a small piece does it (but my tastebuds and mind have to be contained!) I will keep this for special decadence desserts. I try to avoid flour and this recipe does that. Read More

Only bake for the total of 15 minutes as indicated. The torte will firm up as it cools. Over baking will result in a dry torte. Read More

I will make it again for a large function because this is a lot of chocolate for a family of 4! Very very rich as another reviewer mentioned so it will feed a LOT of ppl sliced thinly. And it was very easy to make!!! Read More

The torte came out perfect. Since I couldn t find my spring pan I used a low sided 9 round and cut parchment paper to fit the bottom and a strip for around the inside of the pan. I followed the advice of another reviewer to make sure I didn t bake for more than the total 15 minutes. Made all the difference from the first time I made. The parchment on the sides made for nice smooth side and the edges didn t crumble. Great recipe! My guests loved it! Read More

I made this for my daughter's birthday as she is gluten intolerant. She says it is her new favorite cake. I did find that t has to bake a lot longer than indicated(the recipe says 5 minutes uncovered then 10 minutes covered). It has to bake for more like 40 minutes. Read More
