Chocolate Almond Torte Recipe (GF)

This Chocolate Almond Torte is a gluten free, moist and irresistable dessert. Served cold with cream it's perfect to accompany a great cup of coffee with friends. For a more decadant dessert, create a Sachertorte by brushing the surface with 2 tablespoons of apricot or raspberry jam then a generous spread of chocolate icing. To ensure it is gluten free be sure to check that the chocolate you use does not use gluten flours as a thickener.
