Directions

  1. . Pre-heat the oven at 350F/180C/Gas4. Position rack in the center of the oven. Prepare a spring form pan of 9 inches (23cm) in diameter. Lightly butter all the inside surfaces and set aside.
  2. . In a medium bowl, beat the egg whites until they lightly hold without being too stiff. Set aside.
  3. . In a large bowl, beat the softened butter to a cream. Add the sugar and beat until fluffy. Add the egg yolks and continue beating until well combined. Now, add the Amaretto liquor. Gradually beat in the sifted flour, baking powder and salt until no traces of flour remain.
  4. . With a large spatula, fold in the chocolate pastilles (or chips). Also, gradually fold in the beaten egg whites until all is lightly combined.
  5. . Back to the spring pan. Peel and thickly slice the peaches. Place them at the bottom of the pan in a decorative and circular manner. Pour the cake batter over top and lightly tap down the pan.
  6. . Bake for about 55 minutes. Cool cake pan over a metal rack for about 30 minutes. Afterwards, lightly pass a knife around the cake and then place a serving dish on top before turning it upside down. Now, unclip the pan to finally reveal your lovely torte.
