Rach's sister Maria shares her recipe for a decadent, but not-too-sweet torte made with dark chocolate and almonds, two of Rach's favorites when it comes to sweets. She made this for Rach and John for Valentine's Day 💕
Complete your Vday meal with John's Chicken Saltimbocca and Wilted Garlic Spinach, plus his blood orange "My Bloody Valentine" cocktail.
Preheat oven to 350˚F. Lightly grease a 9-inch tart pan.
Spread almonds on baking sheet and toast in 350˚F oven to light golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from baking sheet immediately to cool.
Stir ground almonds into the chocolate mixture, then stir in the flour. Mix in the egg yolks, then fold in egg whites.
Pour batter into the tart pan and scatter the reserved ¼ cup toasted almonds on top. Bake until firm to the touch, 35 to 40 minutes. Serve with fresh berries and whipped cream, if desired.
