Bake in a pan with a removable bottom.
How to bake flourless chocolate torte?
You have two options with baking this chocolate flourless torte.
You can either bake is as it is or use a water bath. Using a water bath when baking a flourless cake makes it softer, more moist and smooth, almost like creme brûlée.
It does take longer to bake and you need to make sure that the pan is wrapped well, before you put it in the water bath. Also don’t let the water boil, because the texture of the cake will not be smooth.
