Chocolate Almond Flourless Cake- Gluten Free

I made this cake last week, but haven't had a chance to post the recipe because it was originally in German and in grams so it took some effort to translate it. It didn't take much effort to bake however, and was really good. I think it's a new favourite of my dad's. I made it for dinner guests and then we didn't end up serving it, so my parents had it all for them. I had a piece too of course. The recipe is from a family friend in Austria.

6 eggs; separated
1 1/3 cup icing sugar
1 package Vanillezucker- or 1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup ground almond or walnuts (or by weight150g)
6 square semi sweet chocolate (150g)

Preheat oven to 350
Beat the egg whites until forms stiff peaks
Cream together the egg yolkes, sugar and vanilla
Add ground nuts and chocolate (cooled)
Fold in egg whites
Pour into a  spring form pan (greased with butter and flour or cocoa)
Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool before removing from pan.  Sprinkle with icing sugar.
