Torta Caprese (Chocolate Almond Torte) Recipe

Torta Caprese (Chocolate Almond Torte)

A cross between a chocolate mousse and a cake. Lusciously moist and a sinful chocolate taste in every bite. There is no flour at all in it, just ground almonds and chocolate. An all-time favorite recipe of mine from the island of Capri near Naples, Italy. I serve it with crème fraîche, Mascarpone, or vanilla ice cream.
