Swiss Chocolate Almond Cake

This has got to be one of my favourite combinations: chocolate with almonds. Make sure the chocolate is good quality and you cannot go wrong with this recipe. YUM!

200 gr butter, softened
200 gr sugar
1 pinch salt
6 egg yolks
200 gr Chocolat Noir 64%, crumbled
120 gr flour
1½ teaspoons baking powder
100 gr ground almonds
6 egg whites, stiffly beaten

1.) Whisk butter, sugar, salt and egg yolks with hand mixer until the mixture turns paler.
2.) Melt chocolate in a double boiler, add.
3.) Mix flour, baking powder and almonds, fold into the mixture.
4.) Fold stiffly beaten egg whites into the dough, pour mixture into the prepared cake form.
5.) Bake approx. 45 minutes in the middle of oven preheated to 180°C.
