I had this cake many years ago at a friend’s house and I was always wondering how she made it but never asked for the recipe because back then I wasn’t ready to live my life in the kitchen. So when I started getting into the cooking, I tried making it a couple of times. In order to succeed in baking, you need lots of time and patience. My first attempts were sadly not great and I knew I had to stick to the basic: the taste of the chocolate needs to create a burst of flavor. During my testings, I added different sort of ingredients and it was never satisfying: coffee, vanilla, lavender.
But yesterday I realized that I had to let the chocolate works it’s magic. A simple plain chocolate cake with almonds goes perfect with tea and coffee. It takes 10 minutes to make it but needs to be frozen overnight.
- 1 package of sugar free cookies
- 10 ounces of good quality chocolate
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1 cup of sliced almonds
- 2 cups of milk
Melt the chocolate in a large pot and add the milk and the sugar. Stir gently. Break the cookies and add to the pan along with the almonds.
Grease a 9 by 5 inches pan and pour the mixture. Cover and put in the freezer overnight.
