Tropical Flourless Chocolate Truffle Cake

Tropical Flourless Chocolate Truffle Cake

A delicious Tropical Flourless Chocolate Truffle Cake recipe taken from the Dairy Diary 2022.

Tropical Flourless Chocolate Truffle Cake


Coconut oil 250g (9oz), plus extra for greasing

Dark chocolate 250g (9oz)

Large eggs 6, separated

Caster sugar 250g (9oz)

Cocoa powder 75g (3oz)

Prepared fresh mango, pineapple and banana 350g (12oz)

Lime 1, finely grated zest and juice

Coconut milk yogurt 250g (9oz)



Preheat oven to 180°C/160°fan/Gas 4. Grease and line a 23cm (9in) springform cake tin. Put oil in a saucepan and break chocolate into pieces on top. Melt over a very low heat until combined, then mix well and cool for 10 minutes.


Whisk egg yolks and sugar together in a large bowl for 2-3 minutes until thick, creamy and pale. Gently stir in melted chocolate mixture.


In another bowl, whisk egg whites until stiff. Add a large spoonful to chocolate and gently stir in.


Sift cocoa powder on top and carefully fold in remaining egg white until well combined. Spoon into tin, smooth top and stand tin on a baking tray. Bake for 40-45 minutes until slightly risen and cracked. Put tin on a wire rack and leave cake to cool (it will sink).


To serve, gently mix prepared fruit with lime juice and most of the zest. Pile coconut yogurt into centre of cake and spoon fruit on top. Sprinkle remaining zest over.

    Can’t wait to see the new cookbook. I have a couple which are always in use and love the recipes published here. They have been very useful during our prolonged lockdown.

    I have cut the recipes out of my dairy diary and made a scrap book for my grandson off to university this year. Nice quick recipes to try out.

  1. Every year I buy your diary and intend to make the recipes in it, but there are so many, sometimes I cannot choose, then at the end of the year, when my new diary arrives I am cross with myself for not having made everything. But we have tasted some wonderful dishes this year, especially while lockdown was on. Thank you
