Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch springform pan and line with foil.

Place the almonds and hazelnuts, and chocolate in the bowl of a food processor and process until fine. Beat together the egg whites with a pinch of salt until almost stiff. Gradually add the sugar and continue beating until the mixture forms a meringue.

Stir in one-third of the chocolate and nut mixture and one-third of the fruit. Fold through the remaining chocolate and fruit.

Pour into prepared pan and bake for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes, turn off the oven and allow the cake to cool in the oven with the door ajar. When cooled, turn out and wrap in plastic wrap and foil and refrigerate over night before serving.

Quite Bizzare
This cake is very weird. Very rich but not necessarily in a good way. It's a bit flat, hard and all you chew is nuts with a hint of chocolate.
