This dessert is dark and dense, but not so rich it defeats you. It freezes brilliantly too

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.

Definitely tasted great, but mine looked as though it has been through an earthquake (cracks and un-eveness!) Any tips??

Loved it - so easy to make and it tastes delicious - on par with the Gu ones you can buy at the Supermarket!

I cannot praise this recipe enough! Did it as a dessert for a last minute dinner party last week and it was perfect. I am not really a 'cake' person - not very good at making them and don't normally like anything too chocolatey.... I had seconds, as did everyone else :) Great recipe for a lovely moist texture that is more dense than a brownie but not as rich as a torte. Yum!

Lovely dessert, went down well in this chocolate lovers household. Mine cracked on the top so didn't look quite as good as the picture but tasted great nevertheless :-)

Made this for a friend's dinner party. Very rich! I would suggest a small slice would satisfy even the the most ardent chocaholic. Warmed it in the microwave and served with a dolop of vanilla ice-cream. Yumm!

Impressively classy. Would be good for a dinner party or a girlie get-together! Too rich for us, though. I'd suggest serving only the tiniest sliver (otherwise it's sickly and hard-going). Easy to make. I enjoyed baking it!

Made this loads of times, never looks quite as good as the picture but with a dusting of cocoa powder it looks fine. Always tastes great
