Valentine Treat! Almond Chocolate Cake/Torte

The recipe for this yummy, dense, jam covered almond and chocolate torte found it's way into my recipe box many, many years ago.  The cake is very simple to make and frosting it couldn't be easier - simply cover it with jam after baking?

When I make this torte on Valentines Day, I bake it in two little 8" heart pans - one to eat and one to give!.  But a 9" or 10" spring form pan is recommended.  The recipe makes 1 - 9" or 10" cake or 2 - 8" heart cakes.

Chocolate Almond Torte

3/4 cup unsalted butter
7/8 cup + 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
5 eggs, separated
