    Title: Flourless Chocolate Torte
    Categories: Five, Chocolate, Desserts
    Yield: 12 servings

    5 lg Eggs; separated
    12 oz Semisweet chocolate;
    - chopped
    3/4 c Butter; diced
    1/4 ts Cream of tartar
    1/2 c Sugar
    Confectioners' sugar; opt

    Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room
    temperature 30 minutes. Set oven @ 350ºF/175ºC. In top
    of a double boiler or a metal bowl over barely simmering
    water, melt chocolate and butter; stir until smooth.
    Remove from heat; cool slightly.

    In another large bowl, beat egg yolks until thick and
    lemon-colored. Beat in chocolate mixture. With clean
    beaters, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on medium
    speed until foamy.

    Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on
    high after each addition until sugar is dissolved.
    Continue beating until stiff glossy peaks form. Fold a
    fourth of the egg whites into chocolate mixture, then
    fold in remaining whites.

    Transfer to a greased 9" springform pan. Bake until a
    toothpick inserted in center comes out with moist
    crumbs, 40-45 minutes (do not overbake). Cool completely
    on a wire rack.

    Loosen sides from pan with a knife. Remove rim from pan.
    If desired, dust with confectioners' sugar.
