DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line the bottom and sides of a 9 inch springform pan with foil.
  • Grease the foil.
  • Melt the margarine and chocolate over low heat or in the microwave.
  • Stir until smooth and let cool.
  • In a medium-size mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff, about about 2 minutes.
  • In a separate bowl, beat together the yolks and sugar until thick and pale, about 1 minute.
  • Blend in the chocolate mixture and stir in the almonds.
  • Fold in the beaten whites, 1/3 at a time, into the chocolate until no streaks of white remain.
  • Scrape into prepared pan.
  • Place an 8 inch baking pan with 1 inch of water in it on the bottom rack of the oven (to make the torte more moist).
  • Bake the torte on center rack at 350 degrees F for 45 to 50 minutes, or until sides begin to pull away from pan and top is set in center.
  • Cover the torte loosely with foil for the last 20 minutes of baking.
  • Note: Don't worry if the cake cracks because the top will be on the bottom later.
  • Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes and then carefully remove sides of pan.
  • Invert onto a serving plate and cool completely.
  • You can top with whipping cream or dust with confectioner's sugar if you want.
