Torta Caprese

What you need:

  • 125 grams (4.4 oz) blanched almonds (or almond meal)
  • 125 grams (4.4 oz) good quality dark chocolate
  • 125 grams (4.4 oz or 1 stick plus 1 tablespoon) unsalted butter, chopped
  • 125 grams (4.4 oz or 1/2 cup) sugar
  • 3 large eggs, separated and left to come to room temperature
  • powdered sugar for dusting

What to do:
Preheat oven to 320F and grease a springform pan
Place the chocolate, broken up, in a metal or glass bowl set over a bain marie. When melted, remove the bowl from the heat and add the butter, stirring with a wooden spoon or silicon spatula to help it melt. Then add the sugar and the almond meal.
Once the mixture is no longer hot, add the egg yolks and stir to combine with a wooden spoon.
In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites with beaters to soft, fluffy peaks. Fold the whites gently through the chocolate and almond batter.
Pour the batter into the cake tin, smooth over the top and bake for approximately 40 minutes or until the top appears dry and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out with a few moist crumbs attached (not wet batter). It is important not to overcook this cake so that it retains its wonderful moist consistency. Let cool completely in the tin before handling.
Dust with powdered sugar.

cake and coding go hand in hand.

jsey: so picture a DQ ice cream cake.
tee: okay.
jsey: the outside of the cake is the presentation layer. and the icing between cake layers is the middleware that holds everything together! that way the layers can interact together.
dubPR: i want a blizzard.
tee: don’t distract! I’m learning!
jsey: … and a blizzard is like cloud computing with everything mixed in.
dubPR: hey who wants to go get a blizzard?
