  • 200g sugar

  • 200g dark chocolate (around 65% cocoa)

  • 200g unsalted butter

  • 5 medium eggs

  • 1 tbsp plain flour


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Melt the chocolate with the butter in microwave or by bain marie.
  3. Let the mixture cool a little, then add the sugar. Stir thoroughly.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition but without beating in too much air into the mix. Fold in the flour.
  5. Turn into a sandwich tin or silicone baking mould (22cm) and cook for a round 22 minutes. It should be wobbly in the middle when you take it out.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before turning out the cake. Let it rest in a cool place, covered with foil.
  7. Slice and serve with crème fraiche.

    Very easy to make but looks impressive. Lovely with summer fruits scatter over it.
