Mix almonds and chocolate together. Cream sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add essence and cinnamon. Beat in egg yolks one at a time, mixing thoroughly after each addition. Then stir in almonds and chocolate.

Whisk egg whites until light and foamy; add cream of tartar and continue whisking until stiff. Fold egg whites into almond mixture.

Line a 30cm fluted tart dish or quiche pan with a non-stick paper, and brush or spray the sides well with oil. Spoon in mixture and bake in an oven preheated to 170°C for about 45 minutes, or until tart has risen well and is firm to the touch.

Allow to cool before serving. Serve with vanilla frozen yoghurt or ice cream.
