Pomegranate Molasses Almond Torte (Gluten-Free)

First of all, if you’ve never had pomegranate molasses, I encourage you to buy some. It is a great ingredient to add to both sweet and savory dishes.

I like having a bottle handy to mix into yogurt, drizzle over ice cream or simply toss into fruit salads. When I’m feeling more inspired, I even use it in marinades or to make ice cream. It adds so much flavor.

Pomegranate molasses can be found in specialty or Middle Eastern food stores for a few dollars. Be sure to buy a good brand, such as this one, made with 100% pomegranates and no added sugar.

See that beautiful color in the torte? That’s the visible sign of pomegranate molasses. The invisible magic is a delightfully tangy and fruity edge and a very moist texture.
