I found this recipe in a supermarket magazine. (Asda)
- 200g butter (plus extra for greasing)
- 200g good quality dark chocolate - at least 70% cocoa.
- 2 large free-range eggs
- 100g caster sugar
Method1 Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Line a 30cm x 16cm baking tray with baking paper, greased and lightly floured. Or use baking parchment.
2 Cube the butter and break up the chocolate. Put in a glass bowl placed over a pan of simmering water and gently melt. Remove from the pan.
3 Whisk the eggs and sugar until pale and mousse-like, then add the chocolate mixture and whisk again.
4 Pour the mixture into the baking tray and bake for 12-14 minutes. Leave to cool, then remove from the tin.
- Don't use cooking chocolate. It contains a lot of additives and is designed to be glossy when melted and re-set. Since the chocolate here is in the cooking, no need to worry about it's being glossy. Just go for the good quality stuff!!
- When the cake is cooked, it will have a crust over what looks like goo! No worries. It will set some more as it cools.
- Absolutely scrummy served with mascarpone and toasted flaked almonds.
