DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 300* F. Grease an 8 or 9-inch cake pan, line bottom with parchment paper, grease paper, and dust with cocoa.
  • Melt chocolate in a double boiler over barely simmering water. Allow to cool slightly.
  • Cream butter and sugar together until well mixed and fluffy. Add egg yolks and marmalade. Stir in melted chocolate.
  • Add flour, baking powder, and ground almonds. Stir to combine.
  • Whip egg whites until stiff. Fold into cake batter.
  • Pour into prepared pan and bake in a slow oven (about 300* F, 150* C, or gas mark 2) for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  • Cool for a few minutes in pan, then remove from pan and cool on wire rack.
  • While cake cools, make icing. Cream all ingredients together. Warm slightly to facilitate spreading, if needed.
  • When cake is completely cool, slice in half crosswise to make 2 layers. Fill and ice top with the icing.
  • If desired, decorate with pistachios.
