    This is a gluten free chocolate cake with only four ingredients! It uses almonds as a replacement for flour, thus making it a torte.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 12 

    • 175g dark chocolate, chopped
    • 10 eggs, separated
    • 175g caster sugar
    • 350g finely ground almonds

    Directions
    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:1hour  ›  Ready in:1hour15min 

    1. Melt chocolate; set aside.
    2. Beat egg yolks until thick and lemon coloured. Gradually beat in sugar. Blend in chocolate and almonds.
    3. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold whites into chocolate batter. Spoon batter into an ungreased 25cm ring tin.
    4. Bake at 180 degrees C for 1 hour or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Remove from oven, turn it upside down on a cooling rack and cool for about 40 minutes before removing from tin.
