    M.H. Bread & Butter in San Anselmo has an excellent Flourless Chocolate Tort.

      Thank you! I love his bread but have not tried the tort, and I live really close to the bakery, yea!

      It sounds like you do not need the bakery to be kosher / kosher for Passover, that just flourless ingredients work. In that case, Sweet Adeline, Crixa and Masse's all have fantastic choices. My personal favorites are from Masse's.

        I noticed Marla Bakery is offering one for Passover.

          Hi Melanie, have never heard of Marla Bakery. I love the sound of TCHO chocolate covered matzoh so I will definitely check them out next year Thanks!

          Walking by Lotta's Bakery this morning, I saw that its offering a flourless chocolate torte and other items for Passover.

            B.Patisserie makes a flourless chocolate dome (mousse inside) which they can make a large version of, if requested

              Did you get the torte from M. H. Bread & Butter? Please tell us about it.

                I did. I thought it was good but it was extremely dense (definitely no egg whites in it) It either needed some dairy on top-i.e. whipped cream or ice cream to cut it, but I could not do dairy. I would try something else next year from Marla or B. Patisserie.

                  The high density is what I like about it. No whipped cream to cut it for me :-)
