A friend baked this divine Chocolate Almond Torte for a party a few years ago, and I begged her for the recipe. I couldn’t tell you the original cookbook it came from (all I have is a photo of the page on my phone), but I have been pulling it out for special occasions ever since. For me, it’s an added bonus that it’s wheat and gluten-free.
Don’t be fooled by this dessert’s single layer, low profile. The addition of the Chocolate Honey frosting (ganache-like in its texture and preparation), takes this to a whole other heavenly level.
