    Easy Chocolate Almond Tart

    Ingredients

    • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into chunks
    • 3/4 cup (180 mL) sugar
    • 4 large eggs
    • 1 tsp (5 mL) lemon or orange zest, finely grated
    • 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract
    • 2 cups + 2 Tbsp (510 mL) ground almonds, lightly toasted
    • 3/4 cup (180 mL) unsalted butter, melted
    • Icing sugar, for dusting

    Directions

    01

    Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C). Grease and line the bottom of a 9-in (23-cm) pie pan with parchment paper.

    02

    Pulse chocolate chunks in a food processor with 1/4 cup (60 mL) sugar to grind finely but not melt. Whip remaining sugar with eggs, zest, and vanilla until pale and thick, about 5 minutes. Fold in chocolate, almonds, and melted butter just until combined. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 40 to 50 minutes, until a tester inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Let cool completely in pan, then dust with icing sugar before slicing to serve.
