Marcona almonds give this flourless chocolate cake deep flavor and a wonderfully moist texture, while a splash of dark rum enhances the chocolate notes; for a nonalcoholic version, omit the rum. The cake will keep at room temperature for up to 3 days.

What a wonderful addition this was to a dinner party that included a couple friends who are ‘gluten-free’! Delicious.
Question, I have made this several times and everyone loves it. The last time a little "wet" Has anyone had this problem..Maybe temp too low or not long enough...is timing 25-30 best?Also, I would suggest lining bottom of pan with parchment, then butter that..flips our easily.Ann C
This cake it addictive. The crunch of the almonds with the rich moist chocolate is over the top good. 5 stars!
Love this simple but delicious torte. Have made in ramekins for individual portions; keeps well. Have tried with marconas, regular almonds, and a mix of almonds and macadamias all good, but best with marconas. A little fleur de sel sprinkled on the top is nice too.
