Directions

  1. Position a rack in the lower third of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9-inch spring form pan.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the almonds, salt, and 1/4 cup of the sugar to the consistency of crumbs. Set aside.
  3. Beat egg whites, vanilla, and cream of tarter at high speed until they hold a soft shape. Gradually beat in the remaining 1/2 cup sugar until eggs whites are stiff but not dry. Transfer to a large bowl. Fold in the almond mixture. Set aside 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips to sprinkle on top of the torte. Fold the remaining chocolate chips and the coconut into the batter. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly. Sprinkle with the reserved chocolate chips. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until the torte is puffed and golden, and the edges are starting to shrink from the sides of the pan. Cool on a rack.
  4. To serve, whip cream with vanilla and sugar. Remove the sides of the pan and transfer the cake to a serving platter. Serve torte slices with whipped cream and ripe berries, if desired.

This is delicious! I think the previous reviewer has a cake confused with a torte...This recipe never claimed to be a cake!

this was amazing, made this last weekend for family dinner and wow. As I couldn't find Ghirardelli's I just used regular semi sweet chocolate chips and they weren't mini which i like, Mini would be too chocolate. I am wondering what it would be like if I made it with just coconuts or with just almonds, hmmmm something to try

Very delicious! It is rich, dense, and moist. The coconut, almonds, and chocolate chips gave great flavor and a variety of texture. The fresh whipped cream and strawberries were outstanding too!
