I saw this on Jamie Oliver's naked chef and just had to post it on here to see the nutritional content of this, being on a calorie controlled diet! Fingers crossed!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 190c/375f/Gas 5.
  2. Line the bottom of a 20 or 25cm/8 or 10" tin with a piece of greaseproof paper before buttering the bottom and sides, then dusting with flour.
  3. Place the nuts into a food processor and whizz up until finely ground.
  4. Add the chocolate and cocoa, and whizz for 30 seconds to break up the chocolate.
  5. Put to one side in a separate bowl.
  6. Add the butter and sugar to the food processor and beat until pale and fluffy.
  7. At this point, add the egg yolks one at a time, then mix together with the chocolate and nuts.
  8. In another bowl beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt, until they form stiff peaks.
  9. Gently fold the egg whites into the chocolate, butter and nut mix.
  10. Pour all the mixture into the tin.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven for around an hour.
  12. To test if the torte is cooked, insert a cocktail stick or the tip of a knife for five seconds.
  13. When removed, it should be reasonably clean.
  14. Serve with whipped cream, ice-cream or creme fraiche.

This is an excellent torte/cake. Every time I make this torte, I get compliments and requests for the recipe. It has just the right amount of sweetness and nutty crunch to it that it's hard to stop eating it. I sometimes decrease the butter to 225 grams/1 cup and make it a day in advance. Otherwise, it has a very eggy taste to it.
