This sumptuous Torta Caprese (Chocolate and Almond Flourless Cake) is originally from the island of Capri, in the region of Naples, in Italy.
The recipe is a key cake in my family. It come very handy when there is no time and you need something delicious and rich. Chocolate lovers very often go crazy, I have to warn you.
The other day I was asked to make a cake for a client’s wife. It was her birthday and her husband wanted to surprise her in these challenging times for special celebrations.
I’m not a chocolate lover myself, so I searched for help from one of the biggest chocolate lover I know: my mum, who is very picky about her chocolate and her desserts.
She sent me the photo of the recipe of this Torta Caprese, which is a Chocolate and Almond Flourless Cake, handwritten. How can one not smile with a message like this?
