Torta caprese seems to be Capri's quintisencial dessert and it's not difficult to tell why. This flourless tort is rather simple to make and absolutely delicious. I made it pretty much following instructions, though I didn't have a 10" cake pan, so I used my 9" springform pan. For some reason, perhaps I may have undercooked the cake, the sides of the cake stuck to the pan so while the cake tasted great, it didn't look that well. I also forwent the powdered sugar on top - I just forgot about it.
My only complaint about this cake is that the chocolate mixture and the egg whites both required to be mixed by electric mixer - which meant that I had to wash the mixer bowl in between. Of course, if you have two mixer bowls that's not an issue.
