  • 200 g unsalted butter
  • 220 g 70% Dark Belgian Chocolate Share Bag (2 bags), chopped
  • 4 large free-range eggs
  • 200 g golden caster sugar
  • 50 g plain flour
  • 50 g ground almonds
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • cocoa powder (for dusting)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/Gas Mark 4. Butter and line the base and sides of a 23cm (9in) springform or loose-bottomed cake tin.

  2. Put the butter and chocolate into a pan and gently melt together until smooth.

  3. Meanwhile, using an electric whisk, beat the eggs and sugar together for 5 minutes until billowy and about the thickness of old-fashioned custard.

  4. Pour the chocolate and butter mix into the whisked egg and sugar, then fold it in very carefully using a large metal spoon. Mix the flour, almonds and salt together, then fold into the mix until even. Spoon into the tin and bake for 35-40 minutes until evenly set with a slight crust all over the top.

  5. Leave the cake to cool, then release from the tin. Dust with cocoa, then cut into wedges.
