  • Summary

    Like many traditional nut-based tortes, this one is gluten-free. Unlike many tortes, it's made with the addition of buckwheat flour -- which is ground from a seed, not a grain. Martha made this recipe on "Martha Bakes" episode 812.

    Ingredients

    • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, cut into pieces, plus more, room temperature, for pan
    • 1/4 cup blanched almonds
    • 6 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
    • 1/3 cup buckwheat flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 4 large eggs, room temperature
    • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
    • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting (optional)
    • Chai Ice Cream, for serving (optional)
