Gorgeously chocolatey, perfectly gooey, and what’s more it is gluten-free 🙂 this is certainly the dessert that will wow your guests at any dinner party!

What you need:
200g good quality dark chocolate (green and blacks)
200g unsalted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
5 medium eggs(separated)
150g caster sugar
100g ground almonds
50g cocoa powder

What you do:
1) Pre-heat the oven to 180C
2) In a microwave proof bowl break up the chocolate and butter, melt for 2 minutes or until evenly melted.
3) Beat the egg yolks with 50g of the caster sugar until they become slightly pale and fluffy.
4) Pour the chocolate mixture into the yolks and mix until evenly incorporated.
5) Fold in the ground almonds and cocoa powder.
6) Using an electric whisk battle egg whites until still, add in the rest of the caster sugar.
7) Slowly fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture with a wooden spoon, trying to keep in as much air as possible.
8) Grease an 8inch springform cake tin and spoon in the mixture, spread across evenly.
9) Bake for 20 minutes, once bakes, cool for 10 minutes then dust with icing sugar.
10) serve with single cream, ice-cream or whipped cream…either way it is perfect!

Sooo good! This was a first attempt for me but it worked out magnificently, my family loved it…but then again they love everything I force them to eat 😉 haha

Keep it delicious!
