Chocolate Almond cake

Ingredients :

1 cup of finely ground almonds - sliced toasted almonds in the food processor

4 big eggs

7 ounces semi sweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped

11 tablespoons no salt butter, cut into small pieces

3/4 cup granulated white sugar, divided

1/2 tea spoon of pure vanilla extract

1/4 tea spoon of cream of tartar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and place oven rack in the middle of the oven.

Remove from oven and let cool.  

Once completely cooled, place the nuts in a blender or small food processor and process until finely ground. 

Almonds need to be at room temperature before grinding to prevent them from clumping. 

If you find the almonds still clump when you ground them, add about 1 tablespoon of the sugar from the recipe.

Cover with plastic wrap and let stand until they reach room temperature for about 30 minutes.

Beat the yolks and sugar until pale and thick,about 3 minutes. 

Beat in the melted chocolate mixture and vanilla extract. 

Fold in the ground almonds.

In a clean bowl, place the egg whites and whisk until foamy.  

Add the cream of tartar and continue whisking until soft peaks form. 

Gradually sprinkle in the remaining 1/4 cup (50 grams) sugar and whisk until stiff peak forms. 

Fold about 1/4 of the whites into the chocolate batter to lighten it.
