I found this recipe on the internet because we are going to a cast and crew party today and we were asked to bring dishes from different ethnic groups. Since one of my daughters danced in a Jewish dance, I found this Jewish Almond Flourless Chocolate Torte. Haven't tried it yet, but it is sitting in my fridge right now and it looks delicious. God willing, the rain will hold off and we will get to dig into it later today. If it turns out to be awful, I'll let you know :)
Almond Flourless Chocolate Torte
1/2 c strong brewed coffee
2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 sticks of butter, softened
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 c sugar, divided
2 tbls sliced almonds, toasted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Heat coffee, 1/4 c sugar, butter and chocolate chips until smooth. Don't burn! Remove from heat and let cool.
Whip eggs and 3/4 c sugar with wire whisk in mixer on high speed for 5 minutes. Fold egg mixture and chocolate mixture together. Add almond extract and sliced almonds and mix. Place in a greased, 9-inch cake pan.
Bake in a water bath for 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes (after 1 hour, check every 10 minutes; mixture should be moist but not runny).
Remove from oven and let cool in refrigerator overnight. Place bottom of pan in hot water to remove.
Have a Peaceful and Restful Sunday. God Bless!
