    4. 4
      Place the amaretti biscuits, almonds, sugar and orange zest in a food processor, then whizz until the biscuits and almonds are almost finely ground .(not too fine).
    5. 5
      Add the butter and eggs, whizz until blended, then add the melted chocolate and briefly whizz again until well combined.
    6. 6
      Pour into the prepared tin and pop straight in the oven.
    7. 7
      Cook for 35-45 minutes until the cake is puffed and slightly cracked around the edges.( test with a skewer after 35 minutes, it should come out clean)
    8. 8
      Remove and leave to sit for 15 minutes before carefully transferring to a plate.
    9. 9
      The top is quite crisp, and cracks easily, dust it with lots of icing sugar or cocoa powder before serving, to hide any imperfections.
