Caprese Cake

Caprese Cake
Traditional Cuisine of Capri Island

The Caprese Cake is a typical Neapolitan cake, from the island of Capri: it is made with chocolate and almonds and no addition of flour (which makes it suitable for people with celiac disease).

Is rather low, crisp on the outside but moist and soft inside.

  • 250gr Butter

  • Lightly toast the blanched almonds in the oven at about 200°, then leave them to cool.

  • Beat together butter with half the sugar and the egg reds.
  • Add the chocolate previously warmed.
  • Put the mixture into a large bowl and add the almonds previously cut.
