So, apparently, coming from a foodie family instils fear into other people when they are tasked with feeding you. IS THIS PASTA OK? What about the SALAD? Let me watch your face while you eat, Izy. Mate, you’re giving me food! Food you’ve cooked! Hey, I like that! I’m not a food critic and I ain’t mean. Let’s just chill out. I’ve brought dessert, it’s a chocolate chip torte that’s so classy/un-classy that we’ll all forget about how stressful this was and focus on trying not to inhale and subsequently choke on the icing sugar dusted on top. Good times, good times.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
110g granulated sugar
110g unsalted butter
75g plain flour
45g ground almonds
1 teaspoon baking powder
110g amaretti biscuits, crushed
2 tablespoons amaretto liqueur
75g plain chocolate chips
1 tablespoon icing sugar

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line, grease and flour a 20 cm tart or cake tin, as shown.
  2. Separate the eggs into 2 large bowls. Whisk the egg whites with the salt until soft peaks form, then continue to whisk while gradually adding half the granulated sugar until you get firm peaks.
  3. Add the butter and remaining sugar to the bowl with the egg yolks and cream together until fluffy. Stir in the flour, ground almonds, baking powder, crushed Amaretti biscuits and the amaretto liqueur.
  4. Stir one-quarter of the whisked egg whites into the almond mixture to loosen it. Add the rest of the egg whites and gently fold in using a rubber spatula.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake for 25 minutes and let cool completely in the tin before turning out onto a plate. Set a wire rack on top and then flip the whole thing over so that the torte is the right way up again. Dust with icing sugar and serve.
