Chocolate Plum Walnut Torte

This non dairy, low fat dessert is rich and flavorful and very chocolatey.


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 30 min
  • Ready Time : 45 min




  • 3/4 cup dried plums (4 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup Boiling Water
  • 1/3 cup All-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup Granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup chopped California walnuts, divided
  • 3/4 cup California walnut halves


1 Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly coat an 8-inch round spring-form pan with cooking spray. Place a glass baking dish (any size) half-filled with water on the lower rack of your oven.
2 In a small bowl, combine plums, chocolate and water. Let stand 5 minutes until plums soften and chocolate melts. Stir.
3 In a food processor, combine plum mixture, flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar and salt. Whirl until nearly smooth.
4 In a large mixing bowl, use a hand whisk or mixer to beat eggs and granulated sugar until thick and foamy. Stir in half the plum mixture.
5 With a spatula, gently fold in remaining plum mixture and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. Do not over mix. Pour into prepared pan.
6 Arrange walnut halves evenly around edge. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup chopped walnuts in center. Bake 25-30 minutes or until the center feels set when gently touched. Cool completely before slicing. Serve room temperature or chilled.

    Wonderfully moist and flavorful – hard to believe that it doesn’t have any added oil! I made mine in a 9″ springform so it was a little thinner – next time might use an 8″ cake pan instead. I also added extra walnuts for decoration.
