no flour hemp almond cake

The other day my friends hubby showed up late in the evening requesting a delicious birthday cake for his wife for the next day, so I leaned on my old stand by gluten free nutella tort, but this time I made some great changes which yielded a denser fuller cake thick and rich and not too sweet at all, I would say it has stepped from tort-dom to cake dom with these additions.

pre heat your oven to 350

In a double boiler gently melt:

100 g of dark bittersweet chocolate

along with 150 g of good quality organic veggie oil (grapeseed or canola is best)

mix well and set aside to cool somewhat.

Meanwhile separate 6 eggs

whip the whites to soft peaks

In a large bowl combine:

egg yokes

100 g finely ground almonds

50 g hemp seeds finely ground

2 tbsp homemade nutella

2 tbsp vanilla

a pinch of fine sea salt

Stir in the melted chocolate and stir until smooth.

Then gently fold in egg whites, until you have a well mixed fluffy chocolaty mixture

Prepare a 2 piece tort pan (9-11″) by greasing it well (I like to use butter for this, but if you are keeping this recipe lactose free try coconut oil or vegan natural buttery spread

Pour batter into pan and bake for 20 minutes, or until the centre is firm.

Allow to cool before removing tort shell pan, then glaze with a chocolate gnache, fruit spread or just drizzle with melted chocolate. serve and enjoy!
