DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 190c/375f/Gas 5.
  • 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.
  • Place the nuts into a food processor and whizz up until finely ground.
  • Add the chocolate and cocoa, and whizz for 30 seconds to break up the chocolate.
  • Put to one side in a separate bowl.
  • Add the butter and sugar to the food processor and beat until pale and fluffy.
  • At this point, add the egg yolks one at a time, then mix together with the chocolate and nuts.
  • In another bowl beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt, until they form stiff peaks.
  • Gently fold the egg whites into the chocolate, butter and nut mix.
  • Pour all the mixture into the tin.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for around an hour.
  • To test if the torte is cooked, insert a cocktail stick or the tip of a knife for five seconds.
  • When removed, it should be reasonably clean.
  • Serve with whipped cream, ice-cream or creme fraiche.
