Chocolate Almond Torte (Gluten-Free)

This recipe comes to us from Elizabeth Griffith.

Active Work Time: 30 minutes
Total Preparation Time: 1 ½ hours plus 2 hours cooling

Grind instant coffee granules in the food processor to make powdered
instant coffee.

½ pound semisweet chocolate chips
12 eggs, separated
½ pound gluten-free powdered sugar
1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract
1 heaping tablespoon powdered instant coffee
½ pound almonds, finely ground (about 1 ¼ cups)
Butter, for greasing
gluten-free Flour, for preparing pan

Melt chocolate in pan in 250-degree oven or in top of double boiler set over, but not touching, simmering water. Allow to cool.

Place egg yolks and powdered sugar in mixer bowl and beat at medium speed until mixture becomes very light in color and light and creamy in texture, about 5 minutes. Add vanilla, cooled chocolate and coffee powder and mix thoroughly. Mix in almonds.

Beat egg whites until stiff. Gradually add a little of egg whites to chocolate mixture to lighten it, mixing with mixer at low speed. When mixture is light, pour it over remaining egg whites and fold in.

Grease 9-inch spring form pan and dust with flour. Pour batter into pan.

Bake at 325 degrees until torte starts to shrink slightly from sides of pan and springs back when touched at center, about 1 hour. A cake tester can also be used.

Cool torte in pan about 2 hours. To remove, gently run thin knife along inside edges of pan. Gently release spring and remove sides. Serve torte on spring form bottom, or carefully run large knife blade underneath and gently lift off and onto cake platter.

Frosting:

1 (12-ounce) bag gluten-free semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup whipping cream

Place chocolate chips in 1-quart glass measuring cup and set in 250-degree oven until melted, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir once or twice while melting.

Pour whipping cream into saucepan and heat until barely simmering. When chocolate is completely melted, add hot cream and immediately start beating on medium high speed until it is thick and smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Chill 20 minutes.

Frost torte sides first, then pour remaining frosting on top and spread slightly, but do not overwork. Frosting will spread smoothly.

I've lost 3-4 pounds. It surprises me, as I would have expected to lose more, considering how limited my diet has been, how sick I was since early May, and now walking 35 to 45 min. after dinner. I think it's the increased gluten-free bread and shortbread cookies. I've eaten more of these a...

Ebetta posted this 6 years ago ... not sure she/he will respond

Welp, according to the lady at the gastro's office, my tests were all "fine" and I don't have cancer or celiac. I asked for a copy of the report so hopefully that will happen. I guess I will follow up with my family practice doctor and see what they think I should do next, but I am not going...

Hello ebetta! Can you tell me have you found any other or even better drugs to help you with gastroparesis?

That's interesting, thanks. I will look into both - and I believe our forefathers' habit of boiling up bones was good for the joints, too. I wonder if you could tell me, did you lose much weight through all of this? I have lost about 4-5 pounds since this began, and I don't really like los...
