Gluten Free Chocolate Almond Torte
Today’s cake is my favourite type—incredibly fudgy and insanely chocolaty. And if it’s your sort of cake, too, then you’ve arrived at simply the proper place.

This moist Italian-style cake is fairly dense, but no longer too dense way to the whipped eggs. It also has a really mild crunch from the almonds, which provides a few good texture.

During baking, the cake will rise and the ideal will crack slightly. Then, whereas cooling, it’ll sink and achieve further cracks. Don’t worry—that’s precisely the way it ought to be. It purely capacity it remains moist and fudgy within the center.

For a extra severe chocolate flavor, you’ll be able to upload 2-3 tablespoons of cocoa powder to the batter alongside with the almonds.

Don’t overbake
Pay attention to the cake throughout baking. You don’t desire to bake it absolutely and dry it out. A toothpick inserted into the middle ought to pop out with moist crumbs fairly than cleanly. For a tremendous fudgy texture, bake for about 30-35 minutes. If you desire it just a little drier, bake for longer.

Making ahead
This cake tastes even higher a day after it’s made, so that you’ll be able to (and should) make it a day in advance.
