Totally divine chocolate and almond torte. Low in fat and carbs so guilt free. So good you only need a small slice and it is quick and easy to make.
4 eggs, seperated
2 drops of vanilla extract
1 pinch salt
200gm almonds, chopped
200gm bittersweet chocolate, chopped
icing sugar to dust.
Whisk the egg yolks, sugar and vanilla together until pale yellow and frothy. Using a mixer whisk the egg whites with the salt until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the 2 egg mixtures together. Fold in the nuts and chocolate in 4 batches, then immediately pour into the tin. Use a spatula to gently smooth out the top. Bake for 25 minutes, then remove from the oven and set aside to cool completely. Serve at room temperature with a dusting of icing sugar (gluten-free) and generous dollop of whipped cream or yoghurt.
(I chopped the chocolate and nuts together in the processor until they were fine to moderately fine.
Number of Servings: 16
