IngredientsServes: 12

  • 200g dark chocolate (70% cocoa)

  • 200g sugar
  • 200g ground almonds

  • Icing sugar for dusting

MethodPrep:10min ›Cook:40min ›Ready in:50min

  1. Break chocolate into pieces and melt together with the butter in a double boiler. Allow to cool for a short while.
  2. Stir the sugar, almonds, baking powder, vanilla, salt and finally the eggs into the chocolate-butter mixture. If the mixture is still too watery, you can stir in 2-3 tablespoons of flour.
  3. Preheat oven to 160 C / Gas 2-3.
  4. Line the bottom of a 25cm springform tin with baking parchment. Fill the tin with the cake mixture and bake in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes. The cake should still be a bit sticky in the centre after cooling.
  5. If desired, dust the cake with icing sugar before serving.
