As if this couldn't get any better, this recipe doesn't require alot of bowls and utensils, thus minimal dishwashing --- Woo Hoo!!!!
Using the full recipe, I made four baby chocolate amaretti tortes with 4-inch springform pans, and reduced the baking time to 20 minutes. While the cakes were in the oven, the smell of the chocolate and almond was intoxicating.
Once the cakes come out of the oven and are cooled, they are bathed in a lovely chocolate glaze. Going with the almond theme, I spiked the glaze with a little Amaretto.
This texture of this cake can be best described as a cross between a flourless chocolate cake and a brownie. With the amaretti cookies, ground almonds, and Amaretto, the almond flavor definitely comes through, and it marries well with the flavor of the bittersweet chocolate.
I thoroughly enjoyed this torte simply as is. Next time, I will definitely accompany these tortes with a little flavored whipped cream or ice cream.
