This is one of the first cakes I made when I was teaching myself to bake. It tastes amazing and only takes three steps to make. My husband asks for this cake every year on his birthday. I can’t believe that I haven’t gotten around to posting it.
This cake isn’t much of a looker but looks are deceiving. I love eating this cake hot as it’s silky and melt in your mouth chocolate cake. Alex likes to eat it cold as it becomes thick, rich and dense. I have this cake written down in my recipe book so I’m not 100% sure where it came from but I think I got it from the Green & Black’s website.
200g 70% chocolate
275g caster sugar
165g unsalted butter
pinch of salt
1 tbs ground almonds
- Pre-heat the oven to 180 c/350 F. Grease and flour an 8 inch springform cake tin or pie plate.
- In a bowl over simmering pan of water melt the chocolate, sugar and butter until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside.
- In a large bowl whisk the eggs and ground almonds together.
- Pour the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and fold with a spatula until combined. Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 35-40 minutes.
- Allow to cool and dust with icing sugar to serve.
