For a 22-24 cm spring pan


100g dark chocolate 70% cocoa, chopped
100g dark chocolate 85% cocoa, chopped
200g butter
220g sugar
seeds from one vanilla pod
4 eggs
200g ground almonds
pinch of salt
1,5 tsp backing powder


Preheat the oven to 175°C. Line the spring pan with parchment paper and set aside. Melt the butter and the chocolate on low heat. Lightly whisk the sugar, eggs and vanilla. Carefully stir in the liquid chocolate. Fold in the almonds, salt and backing powder. Bake for about 35-40 minutes until a skewer comes out clean. Let the cake cool and set overnight for maximum flavour.
