A Cake Fit for Julia /Bittersweet Chocolate Almond Cake with Amaretti Crumbs

From the wonderful Dorie Greenspan! I had to order the amaretti cookies from Amazon-this cake comes together in less than 15 minutes as it is all made in the food processor. A small and sweet little cake! This cake is over the top delicious and very special!!

1 stick (113 grams) unsalted butter, cut into chunks, at room temperature, plus more for greasing the pan
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, plus more for dusting the pan
¾ cup (75 grams) sliced or slivered almonds
6 double amaretti cookies (about 72 grams), such as Lazzaroni brand
⅓ cup (67 grams) sugar
¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
3 large eggs, at room temperature
4 ounces (113 grams) bittersweet chocolate, melted (it can still be warm)
2 ounces (57 grams) bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
¼ cup (60 ml) heavy cream
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon water
