This decadent, fudgy, and cannabis-infused Flourless Chocolate Torte will take you to a lush chocolatey dreamland. Made in just an hour, you can indulge in this high-clas dessert any time of day – we won’t judge. 

One of the many things to love about Provincetown is its seemingly endless food options. From quick bites at the AquaBar or Rosie’s Cantina to more formal sit-down options like Red Inn, there’s something for everyone.

Then, the winter comes, and many of these places take their well-earned vacations and go off the grid for a few months. (As they should!) For the most part, we adapt and learn to love what Provincetown offers in the off-season. However, when it comes to dessert, well, we’re human after all; we need dessert to survive.

Weirdly (though we’re not complaining), the Flourless Chocolate Torte is on almost every dessert menu in P-town – and for good reasons: it’s delicious, has an amazing texture, and can be made with simple, indulgent ingredients.

What is the difference between a chocolate torte and a chocolate cake?

A torte is either a cake or a tart, depending on where the recipe originates from.

As it relates to this Flourless Chocolate Torte recipe, many flourless chocolate cakes have evolved to be called tortes and often contain nuts. (In this cannabis-infused recipe, we’re using almond extract!)

Due to a lack of flour, tortes tend to be denser and heavier than traditional cakes, and they often don’t rise as tall as regular cakes do. Regardless of what you choose to call this decadent dessert, as long as you like chocolate, this “cake” is for you. (You’d also like our Chocolate Lava Cake Edibles recipe!)

The rich chocolate complements the earthy taste of cannabis. The best part is it’s such a simple recipe, but it looks super gourmet, making it an easy way to elevate your next dessert, whether you’re entertaining or not.

A quick and easy fruit sauce as a topping takes it to a whole new level too – just in case you’re looking to impress. You could even grab some Chocolate Sauce or Caramel Sauce from Ocean Breeze for an easy extra dose.

How to Infuse Your Chocolate Cake with Cannabis

Because of how simple this recipe is, many of the ingredients are pantry staples: butter, eggs, sugar, etc. Therefore, the key to getting the best cannabis-infused chocolate cake is the way you choose to incorporate your cannabis.

With a recipe like this, you have to be careful. The typical chocolate bar (say, Hershey’s) contains 1.55 oz of chocolate. This recipe calls for 9 oz. Directly substituting chocolate for edibles would not only be dangerous, it would be expensive!

Therefore, there are three potential ways you can go about infusing your flourless chocolate torte:

  1. Use infused butter in place of regular butter. This is the most preferred option and the method used in the recipe below. You can check out our Infused Skillet Apple Crisp recipe for more on how to make your own cannabis-infused butter.
  2. Use your preferred serving of Treeworks Purist Drops and add to the chocolate and butter while you’re melting it down in the first step. This tincture offers euphoric, enjoyable, and relaxing effects. Typically, tinctures are better used in candies, but they can work just as well in this recipe. For suggestions on dosing, consider that this recipe yields 18 servings. You can also talk to one of our Hennep budtenders in Provincetown for additional guidance!
  3. Incorporate some edible chocolate into the total measure of chocolate in this recipe. We’d recommend using half of one bar of your favorite edible chocolate bar and measuring out the rest of the 9 oz used in the recipe with non-infused chocolate.

Remember, only pick ONE of the above options as a method to infuse your chocolate torte. If you choose to use a chocolate bar, here’s what our budtenders at Hennep recommend:

Making this Cannabis-Infused Cake Your Own

The fun part about this infused Flourless Chocolate Torte recipe is that you can make it your own in so many different ways. The easiest way to personalize this recipe is to have fun with the torte topping!

Typically, chocolate tortes are topped with a sprinkle of powdered sugar, berries, whipped cream, ice cream, and/or nuts. So, here are some fun ideas that you could add to your infused cake:

  • Replace the powdered sugar with cocoa powder
  • Sliced almonds
  • Crushed walnuts, pecans, or pistachios
  • Fresh berries of your choice
  • Diced fruit of your choice
  • Swap the almond extract for another nut extract, such as pistachio or hazelnut
  • Ice cream flavor of your choice, including an infused ice cream

Prep: 15 mins

Cook: 30 mins

Cooling: 15+ mins

Total Cook Time: 1 hour

Servings: 18 slices


  • 9 oz chocolate (65% dark chocolate preferred)
  • 18 tbsp unsalted infused butter (9 oz)
  • 1 ½ cups white sugar
  • 7 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp almond extract
  • Few tablespoons of rum, bourbon, or whisky (optional)
  • Toppings: powdered sugar, berries, whipped cream, ice cream


  1. Grease and line a 9-inch springform pan (or regular cake pan) with parchment paper
  2. In either a double boiler or microwave-safe bowl, melt together the chocolate and butter until almost completely melted, stirring frequently in 30-second intervals to avoid burning.
  3. Remove from heat and stir until smooth and totally melted. Stir in the white sugar and then let sit and cool for a few minutes at room temperature.
  4. Add eggs, one at a time fully combining between each addition. You do not want streaks of cooked egg in this recipe. After all the eggs have been added, continue to stir until the batter becomes thick and glossy.
  5. Stir in the vanilla extract, almond extract, and any booze if using (it will evaporate during cooking; the weed will not).
  6. Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes, until the torte jiggles slightly in the middle but is still not completely set. (You do not want to overcook this torte!)
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 10 minutes before removing from the pan.
  8. Dust with powdered sugar, cut into slices, and indulge freely.
