4 large eggs separated

Prepare a 9” round springform pan. Butter the pan, line with a circle of wax paper and butter the paper.
Toast the almonds for 8 minutes. When cool enough to handle, place in a food processor with

In a medium bowl mix the egg yolks and ¾ c. sugar. Add the warm Chocolate Sauce, the almonds and the optional orange zest. Set aside.
In a clean bowl beat the egg whites with salt until soft peaks form. Then add the remaining
¼ c. sugar and beat until stiff and glossy.
Fold the whites into the chocolate mixture in 3 additions.
