This cake is more like a brownie, because it is not made with flour, but amaretti cookies and almonds. Melted chocolate is added in to enrich the flavor. I chose to submit this cake because it is my daughter, Ann's, favorite and it is also her birthday on July 5th. your social media marketing partner
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup of baby amaretti cookies
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temp
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 4 large eggs

Additional Tips

After cooled, I often sprinkle powdered sugar on top with some sliced strawberries to add a little something extra. your social media marketing partner

really really delicious,not too sweet,super easy recipe to make. Everyone loved it. I used 2 cups ground almonds instead of the cookies to make it completely gluten free. Will certainly make it again. your social media marketing partner
