{Recipe} Gluten-free chocolate almond torte

This recipe is so good... a bit high in calories but if you are after that chocolate brownie HIT, then this is for you! Perfect for all those into gluten-free baking too!



Recipe:
2 cups of almond meal
1/3 of a cup of good quality cocoa
1/4 tsp salt
4 eggs
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup of butter or if you are going dairy-free use oil
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of coffee or cinnamon
1 cup of brown sugar or sweetner if you are going sugar-free.  You can cut the sugar down to 1/2 a cup if you just want less sugar.
1/4 tsp baking power

Directions:
1. Separate the eggs. Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form.
2. In a separate bowl, beat the butter/oil, sugar and egg yolks, and vanilla together until nice and creamy.
3. Mix in the almond meal, cocoa, baking powder, coffee/cinnamon into the egg yolk butter mixture.
4. Fold the chocolatey mix into the egg whites.
5. Bake in a tin or ceramic dish. I put baking paper on the bottom so I can take it out of the tin.
6. Bake in over for 25-35 mins at 180 degrees Celsius. Test middle with a skewer like you would for a cake.

Tips:
  • Add walnuts to the top just before baking for that brownie feel... 
  • Bake in cupcake cases for gluten free-chocolate cupcakes.... Fill a little higher than normal cake batter as the torte mixture doesn't rise a lot.
