[b][/b] . Set oven temperature of 180 o C . Line 20cm cake tin with paper and sprinkle with some of the ground almonds . Place butter and chocolate in saucepan and melt together on low heat, stirring constantly . Separate yolks from whites and beat whites until stiff but not dry . Combine breadcrumbs, 1/3 cup ground almonds and sigar together and add to melted chocolate mixture . Add yolks one at a time, stirring constantly . Fold in egg whites until combined . Pour into cake tin and bake for 25 minutes (this cake is supposed to be a little moist in the centre) . Finally, just dust with icing sugar (You can also make a raspberry coulis to dress it up if you like. Frozen raspberries with a large tablespoon of caster sugar, just melted in saucepan and cooled.)
