Break chocolate into pieces and melt together with the butter in a double boiler. Allow to cool for a short while.
Stir the sugar, almonds, baking powder, vanilla, salt and finally the eggs into the chocolate-butter mixture. If the mixture is still too watery, you can stir in 2-3 tablespoons of flour.
Preheat oven to 160 C / Gas 2-3.
Line the bottom of a 25cm springform tin with baking parchment. Fill the tin with the cake mixture and bake in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes. The cake should still be a bit sticky in the centre after cooling.
If desired, dust the cake with icing sugar before serving.
I want to bake the lightning-fast chocolate cake, but I don't have a double boiler and I wonder wether I can just put Butter and chocolate together in a usual cooking pot?
Thanks for your help and I am already looking forward to make the cake this weekend! - 18 Oct 2012
