This is for Sharon T, who was looking for a recipe for her son. This sounds like it has the same ingredients that she remembers.

Total Heaven Chocolate Almond Cake

Cake ingredients:
1 cup whole almonds, about 4 oz
1 1/2 cups fresh white bread or cake crumbs
1 tsp cinnamon
12 Tb (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar, divided in half
4 oz bittersweet chocolate, melted and cooled
8 large eggs, separated
1/2 tsp almond extract
pinch salt

Glaze ingredients:
1 cup heavy cream
8 oz semisweet chocolate, cut into 1/4" pieces
1/4 cup toasted, sliced almonds to garnish sides

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare one 10 inch round cake pan with spray or parchment. Place the almonds in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Combine with the crumbs and cinnamon in a bowl and set aside.

Use an electric mixer on medium speed to beat the butter and half the sugar together for about 2 minutes. Then beat in chocolate.

Beat in egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition, and scraping down bowl and beater occasionally with spatula. Beat in almond extract.

Remove bowl from mixer and stir in almond and crumb mixture.

In a clean dry mixer bowl, whip egg white and salt on medium speed until they are white and opaque and beginning to hold a very soft peak. Increase speed to high and whip in the remaining sugar 1 Tb at a time. Continue to whip the egg whites until the hold a soft peak.

Stir in a quarter of the whopped egg whites into the chocolate batter to lighten it, then fold in the remaining egg whites with a spatula.

Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake for 45 minutes or until it is well risen and a toothpick comes out with only a small amount of batter clinging out it.

Cool cake in pan on a rack for 5 minutes the un-mold cake onto rack to cool. The center of the cake will sink slightly in as it cools. Turn the cooled cake over again so that what was the top while the cake was baking is on top. Use a sharp serrated knife to cut away any high edges and to trim the top of the cake even.

Before you glaze the cake, chill it or an hour. Prepare the glaze and let it cool. Invert the cake (so what was the bottom is now the uppermost) onto a piece of cardboard or a spring form base and use a small metal offset spatula to spread some of the glaze over the entire outside of the cake to seal it. Use no more than a few tablespoons of the glaze. Refrigerate cake 15 minutes to set the glaze.

Set the chilled and masked cake on a rack in a jelly roll pan and pour the rest of the glaze over it, starting in center of cake and pouring outward in larger and larger circles to the edge, ending at top edge. Let glaze run down and over sides of the cake. Scatter almonds around the edge of cake before glaze sets.

Bring the cream to a boil, then remove from the heat. Add the chocolate, allow to stand two minutes, then whisk until smooth. Pour into a bowl and cool to room temperature.

For the woman helping plan the shower for her niece your menu sounds wonderful! I definitely do not think you need to add a hot dish to the menu. In our area vegetable trays with one or more dips are extremely popular at all types of gatherings. You could ad that to your menu, if you think others would enjoy it and if you feel you need another item.

For Sue who in the 3/21 newsletter wanted to know how long to leave hard cooked eggs in store bought pickled beets to make pickled eggs, I would say at least two or three days. Some recipes say just 24 hours, but we prefer several days or even a week. I have read that you can prick holes in the hard cooked eggs using a toothpick to speed up the absorption of the juice, but I have never tried it. I am sure I would get some comments about the holes in the eggs by one of my curious relatives.
