This recipe was created on the Island of Capri off the shore of the mainland Italy. Like many delicious desserts from Italy, this was also created by accident. I love flourless chocolate cakes in all sorts, this being one of them. This is for the real chocoholic! This dessert is also a great impression for guests or that special someone. But most of all you, yourself are worth making it just for you! I know I am! ENJOY!

How to Make Torta Caprese Flourless Chocolate Almond Cake


  1. Preheat an oven to 310°F and line the bottom of a 9-inch spring form pan with parchment paper.
  2. Slowly melt the chocolate and butter over a double-boiler. In a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, whisk together the melted chocolate mixture, the cocoa powder, almond extract and sugar until combined. Add the ground almonds and whisk until combined. Add the eggs one at a time, adding each egg after the first has been incorporated into the mixture. Pour the mixture into the spring form pan. Make sure the mixture is level and smooth on top. Bake for 50-60 minutes. Cool and serve with chocolate spirals or shavings and powdered sugar. Serve with gelato or whipped cream. Buon Appetito!
