Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Butter and line the base and sides of a 23cm springform or loose-bottomed cake tin. Put the butter and chocolate into a pan and gently melt together until smooth. Meanwhile, using an electric whisk, beat the eggs and sugar together for 5 mins until billowy and about the thickness of old-fashioned custard.
  2. 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 ¼ tsp salt together, then fold into the mix until even. Spoon into the tin and bake for 35-40 mins until evenly set with a slight crust all over the top. Leave the cake to cool until warm, then release from the tin. Dust with cocoa, then cut into wedges.

Excellent dinner party dessert, went down really well as not over whelmingly rich as some similar recipes are. I served it with the mascarpone marmalade ice cream which was also delicious. However if serving the two together you need to double the amount of ice cream ingredients to serve 8-10 people.

Seriously good, seriously easy, seriously satisfying. I prefer it warm served with some ice cream when serving at dinner party. I served it cold once too but personally preferred it warm.
