DIRECTIONS

  • Directions for Cake:
  • Separate the egg yolks and whites.
  • Beat the egg yolks and sugar together until creamy.
  • Add the ground almonds and the tablespoon of coffee.
  • Beat the whites to a stiff froth. Fold this in alternately with the flour, until the whole is stiff but quite light.
  • Grease 2 cake-tins and dust with flour.
  • Bake in a moderate oven (350) for about 30 minutes.
  • Fill AND cover with Mocha cream.
  • Directions for Mocha Cream:
  • Beat the egg yolks with the sugar.
  • Add the coffee and stir well.
  • Put in a double boiler and cook until the mixture is like a creamy custard.
  • Allow to cool.
  • Beat the butter to a cream. Mix this in with the custard.
  • Spread the cream on top of the lower half of the Torte. Place the other half on top. Cover the top and sides with the remainder.
  • If you can get little imitation coffee beans in chocolate or sweets, they make a nice decoration. Otherwise, use real coffee beans.
