Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a 23cm cake tin and sprinkle with a little flour.
In a mixing bowl combine the butter and sugar and beat until fluffy. Beat in the egg yolks, one at a time, until pale and creamy.
Add the chocolate, flour and the amaretti, and mix everything together with a wooden spoon.
Place the egg whites in a mixing bowl and whisk with an electric whisk until stiff peaks form. Add the whipped egg whites to the mixture, very carefully, moving the spoon from the bottom to the top of the bowl, and repeat, until completely mixed. Transfer to the prepared cake tin.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove from the oven and sprinkle some icing sugar on top. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely before slicing and enjoying.
