La Torta Caprese a la Isabella

Hello everybody,

after talking so much about the good Italian food and the amazing Italian pastries I thought it might be fair to offer an actual recipe.
As I mentioned in my last post our host Isabella was my personal Queen of Cakes. She baked different cakes (all very good) during our stay, but I fell mostly for the torta caprese, an extremely delicious chocolate-almond-cake. Luckily, Isabella was kind enough to share her recipe with me, which I am now going to share with you. :)

What you'll need
  • 170g butter
  • 170g dark chocolate
  • 5 eggs
  • 150g sugar
  • 400g almonds
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 20g baking powder
  • 1 espresso cup Amaretto
How it works

Start by melting the the butter and the chocolate over a pot of boiling water.

Beat the eggs and the sugar until frothy.

Add the melted chocolate-butter-mixture and then one by one all the other ingredients using a mixer.

Cover a springform pan with wetted baking paper. Fill it with the batter and put into the pre-heated oven (170°C). After 45 minutes lower the heat and continue baking for another 15 to 20 minutes.

Done! :) 

Have a beautiful evening!
