Decadent and rich the salty roasted almonds and vanilla ice cream add a nice finish.



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter and flour an 8-inch round cake pan. Line the bottom with parchment paper and butter and flour the paper. In a small bowl, whisk the flour with the salt and baking powder. Chop the chocolate and, in a large microwave-safe bowl, heat it with the butter at high power in 30-second intervals until the chocolate is melted.
  2. Whisk in the 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sugar. Add the eggs and whisk until smooth. Whisk in the dry ingredients until evenly combined. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan.
  3. Set the cake pan in a small roasting pan. Transfer the roasting pan to the center of the oven. Carefully pour enough hot water into the roasting pan to reach one-third of the way up the side of the cake pan. Bake for about 40 minutes, until the torte is firm to the touch and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached. Transfer the cake pan to a rack and let cool for 30 minutes.
  4. Run a knife around the torte and invert it onto a plate. Peel off the paper and invert the torte again. Cut into wedges and serve with roasted almonds and vanilla ice cream.
