Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375 °F. Grease and line the bottom of a 9-inch pie pan with parchment paper.

Step 2

Pulse chocolate chunks in a food processor with ¼ cup sugar to a fine grind, but not melted. Whip remaining sugar with eggs, zest and vanilla until pale and thick, about 5 minutes. Fold in chocolate, almonds and melted butter just until combined. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 40 to 50 minutes, until a tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool completely in pan then dust with icing sugar before slicing to serve.
