Method

  1. Tip the flour, butter, icing sugar and cinnamon into a food processor and pulse to make crumbs. Add 2 1⁄2-3 tbsp water and pulse until it comes together. Wrap in cling film and chill for 20 mins.

  2. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface and use to line a deep 23cm loose-based tart tin. Leave the excess pastry overhanging the edges of the tin. Line with baking parchment, fill with baking beans and chill for 15 mins.

  3. Bake for 15 mins, remove the paper and beans, then bake 5 mins more until the pastry is crisp and pale golden.

  4. Beat the eggs and sugar together to create a mousse-like texture. Stir in the vanilla and melted butter, then fold in the flour and cocoa. Scatter the nuts and chocolate over the pastry case and pour the filling on top. Bake for 30 mins until firm with a slight wobble. Trim away the excess pastry and leave to cool. If freezing, wrap in cling film and foil. To defrost, unwrap and thaw.

  5. Serve at room temperature or warm, with a scoop of ice cream and dusting of cocoa.

The pastry case broke into pieces when I took it out of the oven. I poured the filling into a lined rectangular tin and cooked it five minutes less. Served it warm, cut into squares, with ice cream and a little coffee liqueur. Absolutely delicious! Going to make it again and just ignore the pastry case.

Really delicious. Used cashew nuts instead of macadamia but otherwise followed the recipe and it was lovely.

Great dessert - very rich and would probably serve 9/10 people adequately. Didn't add the nuts as I'm not keen & I grated the dark chocolate as I wasn't sure about the chunky texture if chopped...worked a treat. Rich and squidgy in the centre.

Not sure what I did wrong here, the only thing I changed was using white chocolate in the base and no nuts. I had to cook it for so much longer that I got tired of cooking it and decided to make do with some runniness in the middle. The pastry case was also very hard after all that cooking. The parts of it that cooked well have a lovely squidget brownie texture.

The thing you did wrong is use white chocolate.... it's a bit like cooking brownies.... dark chocolate works in these kinds of recipes... :3

Tastes amazing! Really easy. I followed the recipe exactly apart from using white chocolate instead of dark.

Absolutely delicious! Fairly simple to make and tastes ace! The pastry tastes great with that little hint of cinnamon and makes the calories worth while! Left it in the oven for exactly the required time but when i turned the oven off, i left it in there for a few more minute so it cooked just a little bit more as i didn't want it to be too runny. Will definitely be making again and especially loved the cinnamon pastry.

I followed the cooking time exactly but it turned out VERY runny. Delicious nethertheless but it would be good to know where it went wrong as I'd like to make it again. I beat the mixture for quite some time but it did not become a "mousse-like texture". Could this be the issue? How long did others beat the mixture for?

Hi there, thanks for your question and sorry to hear the pie didn't turn out quite right. It does sound like you may not have beaten it for long enough. It will take a good few minutes with electric beaters, about 4-5 mins. Hope it turns out better next time.
