Torta Solo-Dolce - Creamy Recipe
Torta Solo-Dolce is a soft and creamy cake, made with only a few ingredients and can be eaten by anyone, especially those people who are intolerant to gluten since there is no flour.

In my blog, there are several recipes of flourless cakes such as the blood orange cake, a delight not to be missed, or the yogurt cake that enters the category of lighter cakes.

I invented my recipe based on my little knowledge about chocolate pastry.

And this is my result. It is a very good creamy and chocolaty dessert, which my family devoured in 5 minutes.

Since not all of us are pastry chefs, a few tricks up are sleeve could save us from making a mess in our beloved kitchen.

How many times have you tried to make a sponge cake that ended with a less-than-acceptable result?

With all these mistakes many of us learned throughout the years about small fixes that can get our pastry back on track. When it doesn’t turn out fluffy? Just replace a little flour with potato starch to make it softer. Don’t have any yeast at home? Beat the eggs for 15 minutes straight in order to obtain the same effect.

Returning to my sweet-only cake, it was created having only these few ingredients at home from nothing and the basic knowledge of some scientific principles regarding the cooking of chocolate helped me a bit too.

Instead of using only dark chocolate, I mixed milk chocolate with 70% Modica dark chocolate that I had at home.

And this is my result. I hope you enjoy this chocolatey delight!
