This is a famous Italian chocolate cake originally from Capri but popular throughout southern Italy, where every family has its own recipe. It's a rich, dense chocolate cake that's made either with ground almonds or walnuts. Walnuts are used here, but you can substitute them with the same weight of ground almonds, if liked.
Good flavor, but very dry and crumbly. Similar to a brownie. Will be good crumbled over vanilla ice cream. - 28 Sep 2017 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I had seen a completely gluten free recipe for this cake but didn't have quite enough ground almonds to make that! I searched and found this instead and I'm very glad I did. It's easy enough to make (a few bowls to wash up but hey), cooks up a treat and is a delicious, not overly sweet, soft crumbed chocolate cake. Thank you for sharing the recipe 😊 - 16 Sep 2017 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
