Flourless Chocolate Cake Recipe

Almond and Chocolate Torte

I had been meaning to try this flourless chocolate cake recipe for a while. It is officially known as a chocolate torte. The official definition of a torte is a cake that is made with eggs, sugar, and ground nuts instead of flour.

In this recipe we use ground almonds instead of flour. The almonds are ground really finely like granulated sugar. If you are making your own ground almonds then consider toasting the blanched almonds first as this intensifies the almond flavour and stops it from clumping as you grind them in the food processor. Serve warm with crème fraiche or mascarapone cheese.
