Two-nuts Chocolate Torte
Jamie O says it's the best chocolate nut thang around .....
But I guess I'll be much more happier if I used milk instead of dark chocolate ^__^''
It's very chocolatey and I only used 63% ( cocoa solids ) chocolate chips !
One of the nice thing about this cake is the texture , all nuts and no flour so every bite tastes of nuts and chocolate and another plus - it's not sweet ....
Sort of flourless chocolate cake but in my opinion , way better ......
Now , if only I used milk chocolate ! lol
Recipe from Jamie Oliver's The Naked Chef book
***I made half of the recipe and used 6x6-inch square pan
150 grams shelled and peeled almonds
150 grams shelled walnuts , finely ground
300 grams best-quality cooking chocolate ( 70% cocoa solids )
1 heaped teaspoon best-quality cocoa powder
255 grams butter
100 grams caster sugar
6 large free-range eggs , separated
* Preheat oven to 190°C / 375°F . Line the bottom of a 8 or 10-inch tin with a piece of parchment paper before buttering the bottom and the sides then dusting with flour .
* Place the nuts into the food processor and process up until finely ground . Then add the chocolate and cocoa and blend 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 light and fluffy ; add egg yolks one at a time then mix together with the chocolate and nuts .
* In another bowl , beat the whites with a pinch of salt until they form stiff peaks ; gently fold the whites into the chocolate mixture . Pour mixture into the tin and bake in the preheated oven for an hour . To test if the torte is cooked , insert a toothpick or a tip of the knife for 5 seconds ; when removed it should be reasonably clean . Serve with whipped cream , ICE CREAM or crème fraîche .
