Torta Tenerina

Updated: Jul 23, 2021

Torta tenerina is one of my favorite desserts! It's originally from Ferrara, in the central part of Italy. It's a delicious cake to eat both during warmer days with fresh berries or ice cream, or during colder days with warm vanilla custard or simply warm out of the oven.

If you are looking for an easy and delicious #chocolatedessert recipe, this is one to save!


50g whole wheat flour or plain

100g coconut oil (or butter)

200g dark chocolate

150g brown sugar (or regular sugar)

4 eggs

Let's get baking

  • Melt the dark chocolate with coconut oil or butter (make sure it doesn't overheat, needs to be super slow and you will need it to cool down to room temperature)

  • Whisk 4 egg whites with 75gr of sugar and let sit

  • In the meantime, whisk 4 egg yolks with 75gr of sugar

  • Then add in the coconut oil or butter & chocolate mix to the egg yolks while you keep whisking

  • Finally, add in the firm egg whites with a spatula or wooden spoon, moving slowly from the bottom up

  • Lastly mix in 50gr of flour little by little

  • Pour in a baking tray or tin (should be 23cm diameter if using a round one)

  • cook in static oven 180 degrees for 35 minutes

Serving & storing

Serve with your favorite fruit, ice cream or vanilla custard cream. I also love it plain with nothing on the side. Store in airtight container or covered very well with foil up to 3 days
