Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Butter a 20-25cm cake tin and line with greaseproof paper.

  • STEP 2

    Place 175g/6oz of the chocolate, plus the butter and sugar in a heavy-based pan and heat gently until melted, stirring occasionally. Leave to cool.

  • STEP 3

    Whisk the egg yolks into the chocolate mixture, then add the flour, nuts and the remaining chocolate.

  • STEP 4

    Whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks, then gently, but thoroughly, fold into the chocolate mixture.

  • STEP 5

    Pour into the prepared tin and bake in the centre of the oven for about 35-40 mins until crusty on top. Leave to cool, then run a knife around the sides and remove from the tin. Dust with icing sugar and serve warm with custard or ice cream or cold with cream.
